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events from the 1920's through to the early 1990's. The first colour images appeared in the mid 1950's and 30 years of unpublished 35mm colour images remain in the LAT Black Books.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

This image of famous New Zealand champion Bruce McLaren was taken at the 1969 Great Britain Grand Prix. With his eponymous M7C motor Cosworth and his famous "Papaya" orange livery , the driver will take the 3rd place on arrival.
But apart from the sporty aspect, the square and yarn composition, with its aluminum rear-view mirrors serving as reference points for the sight, make it a very modern true piece of art. What seems simpler today with our modern cameras was not the case at the time. The difference between blur and "file" was tenuous ...
The impression given that the front right tire escapes from its rim adds intensity to the speed effect.
But one thing is certain, this square image, in large format, will reign in majesty in the middle of your favorite room.
