Photostox - THE Brisca F1 Stock Car photo archive!

My first visit to a stock car meeting was in 1974 when I visited my home town track at Blackbird Road at Leicester. I had always been interested in photography so it is not surprising that I was soon taking photos of the cars and the racing. My first stock photo was of Jim Potter at Leicester on 28th June 1975 and I haven’t stopped taking photos since! My archive now stands at some 250,000 images.

For many years stock car fans have been urging me to create a website of my images. Well the wait is finally over! I will probably be doing a little refining over the next few weeks but my plan is from the beginning of June 2011 to try and add a new gallery each week but this will be subject to available time so I will have to see how it goes.

To give me a head start I have initially loaded five galleries. The ‘Photostox Gallery’ is just a quick rumble through 36-years of stock car photography, with one picture per year. The next two galleries are of my two favourite stock car drivers – firstly Dave Chisholm (252) and then John Lund (53). The fourth gallery is the first set of photos that I took, at Leicester in 1975, whilst the fifth gallery is of the shots that I took at my first visit to my favourite track, Coventry, also in 1975.

The photos on the website are of either shots I have taken myself, collections that I have purchased over the years with copyright or photos that I have scanned with the original photographer’s permission. I have no intention of infringing other people’s copyright so if you see any image in a gallery that you don’t think meets these three criteria then please get in touch.

I hope you like what you see and that you may be tempted to buy some photos for your own collection. Proceeds from sales will help towards the purchase of the specialist archive storage materials to ensure that the Photostox archive is sustained for the foreseeable future. Please note that some of the early scanning that I did was at a relatively low resolution so some photos will only be okay as 6 x 4 or 5 x7 size prints. The website will tell you if the image is not capable of being produced at a larger size. If this is the case contact me and I will load a higher resolution image of the relevant photo which should solve the problem.


Thank you for visiting the site.

About
Photostox - THE Brisca F1 Stock Car photo archive!

Photostox was formed in 1975 in order to make the Brisca F1 stock car photos that I was taking available to fans. Whilst I have scaled back my visits to tracks in more recent times, I am still adding in the order of 5,000 images to the stock car photo archive each year. This now stands at well over 250,000 images.

The acquisition of the Derek Hibbs, George Marks and Jeff Postlethwaite collections have given me additional extensive colour coverage of the 1960s through to the 1980s, making the Photostox Brisca F1 Stock Car archive, arguably, the largest in the world.

I have had stock car photos published in numerous UK magazines along with race car magazines in the United States of America, The Netherlands and New Zealand.


Since 1992 I have also photographed NASCAR and Sprint Car Racing on a regular basis.

Whilst a rudimentary cataloguing system is in place the creation of a more thorough and robust system is ongoing.
