For some years, David Cross has been intrigued by how racing cars arrived at the race paddocks and was disappointed to find no specific guidance or literature on what appeared to be an important facet of motorsport. He decided to remedy this omission and his detailed research has resulted in the publication of this unique book. Inside the Paddock - Racing Car Transporters at Work contains nearly 550 images, many previously unpublished, which are enhanced by well-researched and informative captions. After the introduction which gives a historical overview of the circumstances and logistics involved in arriving at a race meeting, the book is divided into over 150 sections which investigate and discuss the transporters of individual teams, privateers, manufacturers, constructors and record-breakers. The author has been ably assisted by Bjorn Kjer, a specialist in lorries, but particularly racing car transporters and the other support vehicles which appeared at race circuits. His knowledge has been a source of much detailed information, identifying many of the vehicles and venues in the photographs.
