For some years, David Cross has been intrigued by the many ways that racing cars reached the paddock at a race meeting and was disappointed to find no specific guidance or literature on what appeared to be an important facet of motorsport. He decided to remedy this omission and his detailed research has resulted in the publication of this unique book.

Inside the Paddock - Racing Car Transporters at Work, contains nearly 550 images, many unpublished hitherto, which are enhanced and embellished by well-researched and informative captions. This is a remarkable history of the transport of racing cars revealed in a picturesque manner.
