RESEARCH DIVISION - professional historic car research for owners. In future, we will be working with our friends at Classic & Sports Car to promote the Research Division to a wider audience. The restoration of one of the old farm buildings to house all our research material is now complete. We have just purchased a complete collection of Autosports from Issue 1 to the present day which fills any gaps we previously had. We have an agreement with Haymarket allowing us to gradually digitise Autosport magazine to revolutionise searching for car and driver information.
Le Patron, Philip Porter, writes:
“After two years' work, I recently completed the 260,000-word volume one of my biography of Sir Stirling. It is on schedule to be launched at Goodwood Revival – do visit us if you can. The Bizzarrini book is just out and the reaction has been very positive. We are making good progress on another dozen books for 2017.”
