Readers of this site will be more than familiar with the work of leading F1 photographer Darren Heath. Last week he launched a stunning new book called “The Art of Racing” in conjunction with McLaren.

The 304 page book is a collection of images from the past two seasons, with captions from Maurice Hamilton.


Darren is a master not only at capturing speed, but also poignant personality images, as readers of this site will know. His behind the scenes work is very strong and there’s plenty of that on show in this book, which is produced in stunning reproduction, featuring a printing technique on the cover which has never been done before in publishing.

The images also reflect the technological process in F1, with behind the scenes images from the factory of the development of a new F1 car.



The Art of Racing retails for £99.95 in large format hardback and can be bought from the McLaren eshop following this link McLaren eshop

    Pretty classy.

      Can’t wait to get this book, although may have to add it to my Christmas list at £100. Still, worth every penny, the work that I have seen on this site from Darren is nothing short of Art.

      One of my favourites was of Hamilton, on his way to the podium I believe, at some point last year. Was a great still on more than a couple of levels.

        I got mine from Amazon. It’s an incredible book no doubt, but at £64.35 it feels even better!

  2. gizmo says:

    Congratulations Darren on producing such a beautiful book of art.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy over here in the States.

  3. David says:

    James – Any chance of posting some of the images from this book on your website?

  4. crespo says:

    I believe you’ve covered these before, some time ago, but could you mention what some of your favorite racing art books are, James? The nice, hefty, coffee table type? I’m about to move and would like a couple of quality books/classics. Much appreciated.

    1. James Allen says:

      The Cruel Sport is one of the best from the 1960s

  5. Tank says:

    …so its only McLaren photos then?

    1. James Allen says:

      Yes, McLaren based photos

  6. Dren says:

    Since the book covers the last two seasons you will likely see Massa more than a couple times :)

  7. James Alias says:

    Well, it would have been very interesting if Michael Schumacher had been a McLaren driver.
