Start by marking Speedway: Auto racing’s ghost tracks as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read.

by SS Collins and Gavin D. There are a number of books that cover ghost tracks and even for these authors (Collins writer, Ireland photographer) this is the second. Want to see a grown man cry? Watch him look at the photos in this book! Well, a whole bunch of qualifiers are needed to make this sentence stick, but, really, this book pushes buttons. Certainly for those who’ve been to these once fabled tracks in their glory days and that are now in ruins. Their first book, Autodrome-The Lost Race Circuits of Europe (ISBN-13: 978-1904788317) in 2005, covered nine tracks and a sequel covering another 10 is scheduled to be released in 2012.

3. Description this book Around the world languish a number of long-forgotten raceways; windswept and abandoned, the derelict pit roads and crumbling concrete are all that remain of once great race tracks.

A nostalgic new book titled "Speedway – Auto racing’s ghost tracks", by SS Collins and Gavin D Ireland, takes an evocative and original look at the history of eight now abandoned race circuits in the US and Europe, and again viewed as they are today via a stunning set of photographs. The captivating photos show long-forgotten race tracks, derelict pit lanes and the crumbling concrete of tracks that spawned NASCAR to the great European super speedways at Monza and Brooklands

Around the world lies a number of long-forgotten raceways; windswept and abandoned, the derelict pit roads and crumbling concrete are all that remains of once great race tracks. From the NASCAR heartland of North Wilkesboro and Middle Georgia to the great European super speedways at Monza and Brooklands. All photographed as they are now, but remembered in their prime.

This book is a follow up to the fantastic book Autodrome. Autodrome described some of the retired racing circuits in Europe with a combination of history and photography.

In this new volume of stories and photographs of former auto racing tracks, coverage spans both North America and Europe. In fact, some of the circuits described in Speeday are duplicates of those in Autodrome. Some of the new tracks covered in Speedway include Chicago, Augusta, Middle Georgia, and North Wilkesboro. Returnees include Avus, Brooklands, Monza, and Montlhéry.

While Autodrome was quite enjoyable, Speedway is a bit of a letdown. Both the photography and track selection for the North America circuits are somewhat poor. Furthermore, rounding out the book with a bunch of the same tracks (albeit with some new photos) from Autodrome seems like a cheap trick. Surely the authors could have found more worth tracks to include like Marlboro Motor Raceway, Riverside, and others?

If you already have Autodrome, then I'd say skip this volume.

Great book with photography that's detailed and haunting. Great information on tracks that should still be thrilling audiences but sadly are gone forever. A book that glorifies some very famous and forgotten race tracks you wonder what happened to.

Great book

Missing a few significant tracks and speedways of the past. What is there is fine - its just short on content.

Very nice book. Learned about some places I never heard of. Nice pics too. Just wish it was longer!
Binar
A wonderfully illustrated book, but the description doesn't tell you that it is a history book as well. Lots of color.
