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events from the 1920's through to the early 1990's. The first colour images appeared in the mid 1950's and 30 years of unpublished 35mm colour images remain in the LAT Black Books.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.

Raced on the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans, July 2nd, 1967, the departure of the France F1 GP could easily be mistaken with an antique diorama, if it was the smoke rising from tyres of these beautiful F1. The top view itself adds to this impression. It was the first Grand Prix of France to stand at Le Mans since the official championship started. The pilots were unanimous that this track was boring and all ardently wished to one day take the famous circuit 24h of Le Mans. It must be said that at the time the 13.461 km route of the Grand were more in tune with the 14.120 km of Spa and the famous 22.835 kilometers of the Nordschleiffe.

That year, Graham Hill (# 7, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth) had monopolized pole position and succeeded in gaining the best lap at an average speed of 164.625 km / h. But it was Jack Brabham (# 3, Brabham BT24 Repco-) who will win the race and its 12th victory in 2h 13mn.

Graham Hill (#7, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth), Jack Brabham (#3, Brabham BT24-Repco) and Dan Gurney (#9, Eagle T1G-Weslake) lead Jim Clark (#6, Lotus 49-Ford Cosworth), Bruce McLaren (#8, Eagle T1G-Weslake), Denny Hulme (#4, Brabham BT24-Repco), Chris Amon (#2, Ferrari 312), Jochen Rindt (#12, Cooper T81B-Maserati), Chris Irwin (#15, BRM P83), Jackie Stewart (#10, BRM P261), Jo Siffert (#18, Cooper T81-Maserati), Pedro Rodriguez (#14, Cooper T81-Maserati) and Mike Spence (#11, BRM P83)
