Renowned motor sports photographer Rainer W. Schlegelmilch’s new book, The Golden Age of Formula 1, focuses on the auto racing circuit’s legacy from the 1960s, often referred to by enthusiasts as the “glory years” of the sport.

In this volume of gorgeous photographs, readers can relive the era of champions like Jim Clark, Jacky Ickx, and Jack Brabham, as well as the classic cars and fast-paced, daredevil races of the era.
