I had the pleasure of reviewing a wonderful book recently - Frank Lockhart, American Speed King. Lots of impressive photos and I learned a lot about his earlier career as a board track racer. His LSR car was truly revolutionary, much more compact than those he was up against - and beautiful too. Sadly a tyre failure at Daytona beach ended his short life.
As well as the review I had the opportunity to use the inside cover for an illustration so I created this digital painting of the Stutz Black Hawk.

Today we set off for Dieppe. They'll be celebrating the Grand Prix which was first held there in 1907. I'll be a passenger in a Monarch GP - chain drive, V8 Curtiss aero engine, no windscreen - it'll be amazing. Hoping to get lots of sketching and photoing done too. Salut maintenant!
