Motorsport Images has the largest motoring picture collection in the world. The archive houses approximately 18 million images of which in the region of half are black and white negatives and glass plates. The library is made up of images from the world of motor sport since it began and every conceivable road car since it's invention. This incredible archive is the result of the amalgamation of a number of previously separate archives, which are now housed under one roof.

Many of the images are published pictures from the magazines owned and bought by Haymarket over the years and the archive contains the original prints from the very first 'Autocar' issue published in 1895 right through to the present day issue. 'The Motor' archive contains more sporting images with black and white negatives, glass plate and acetate from 1924 - subjects include road cars, sprints, hill climbs, motor shows and Grands Prix.

The original Teesdale Company supplied pictures to 'MotorSport' magazine (founded in 1924) and Motoring News (founded in 1955) and has over 4 million black & white negatives of motor racing events from the 1920's through to the early 1990's. The first colour images appeared in the mid 1950's and 30 years of unpublished 35mm colour images remain in the LAT Black Books. LAT now supplies the Haymarket Media Group, commercial clients, the worldwide media and agencies with motor sport coverage from around the world from Formula 1 to karting.

The 'Autosport' archive contains images from the world's leading motorsport weekly. Since 1950 all aspects of motor racing from Formula 1, Le Mans and sports cars, rallying, single seaters and club racing have been photographed and archived in colour and black and white formats.

On October 22nd, 1989, at the Japanese Grand Prix of Suzuka, Alain Prost can be crowned World Champion, but Senna is ready to play it all for the whole. We will pass on the intimidating exchanges before the Grand Prix from both sides. On the other hand, this image is THE summary of the race.

In the 47th lap of the race, the Brazilian wants to make the inside of the professor, and tangles the wheels of both McLaren Honda... Prost will have to give up, but Senna will be able to go back on track with the help of the commissioners, to win the victory of this Very lively race. He will be immediately disqualified for short-circuiting the chicane, taking the loophole, and receiving outside help.
But if you have seen many photos of this moment, look at this one!
We can clearly see Alain Prost engrosser Ayrton Senna, who holds his head in his hands ... before taking over and doing everything to start again in the race, leaving there his teammate having stalled.
This photo belongs to the history of F1.
