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events from the 1920's through to the early 1990's. The first colour images appeared in the mid 1950's and 30 years of unpublished 35mm colour images remain in the LAT Black Books.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

Renault is back on track with groundbreaking F1s, introducing the V6 Turbocharged engine mid-season on July 16, 1977, at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone.
The beginnings are difficult and the many abandons of the RS01 will earn him the delicious sobriquet of "Yellow Tea Pot" from our best English friends, given his propensity to finish its races in a plume of smoke.
This photo illustrates the arrival of Renault in F1 at the British GP... and its first retirement!
But it was not counting on the talent and dedication of two major players of this period, the engineer Jean Sage and the driver Jean-Pierre Jabouille, who will not only make the car more reliable, but eventually make it win.
Their first victory will be for the famous Grand Prix de France of Dijon-Prenois in 1979.
