Porsche SportErfolge by Tony Adriaensens
€185,00  
We are proud to announce this new book by Tony Adriaensens. After the most successful 'Ten days in Sicily' and 'Weekend Heroes', Tony has accomplished a massive work on early Porsches in competition.

Titled 'SportErfolge', this magnificent photo-essay covers a part of the rich racing and rallying history of the Porsches from as early as 1951 when the Austrian-built Gmünd 356 challenged the early post-war racing scene. From there it goes all the way up to 1963 when the rare flat-eights showed great potential at the Targa Florio, Nürburgring and Le Mans. In between are many events, national and international, that slowly but surely put Porsche on pole position among the world's finest competition cars.

Race meetings are laid out individually and chronologically, starting with the 1951 Coupe du Salon at Montlhéry and ending with the 1963 Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, via Sestriere, Liège-Rome-Liège, Carrera Panamericana Mexico, Pebble Beach, numerous Swiss hill-climbs and more, much more. There are some truly amazing shots – Hans Herrmann in the 1954 Carrera Mexico class winning 550, full colour Mille Miglia and Bob Donner gunning his RS61 up Pikes Peak are just some examples. Paddock studies feature strongly, and Tony has retained a typical feel for the 1950s culture.

Cleverly, verbatim reports from old race journals are used to provide summaries of the action at each event, while extended captions to the pictures provide additional detail and background information on the cars and drivers.

Once again, Adriaensens has gathered together a fine selection of meticulous images, most of them taken by talented amateur photographers whose rare and vivid colours makes SportErfolge a must have – not only for the Porsche enthusiast, but for everyone interested in motorsport of the 1950s.

Tony adriaensens, writer and publisher of:

About the author(s)Tony Adriaensens was born in Antwerp on April 17, 1966. My parents are from Antwerp as well and they had an education in graphic arts. Graphics, photography and layout, then came naturally to Tony. Cars did too. It was my father who gave me the bug for motorsports and both my brother and me are now stuck with it - I guess for life. Father was a strong supporter of Formula One and I remember that he never missed an event.

Racing takes its toll, however, particularly during the 1970s. My favorite driver was Ronnie Peterson and I felt pretty bad when he fatally crashed his black & gold JPS Lotus. But the hobby stayed with him.

Tony's brother inherited the mechanical genes and today restores his own cars, while Tony is into more creative things probably due to his education. Instead of working on the machinery I bought books. From the beginning it was obvious that my main interest went to Italian cars.

His first real interest was the Alfa Romeo GTA and the lack of good detailed info made him decide to do a book on the car. Having worked as an assistant graphic designer I learned how to make a book and it was obvious from the start that I would do all myself. As soon as 'Alleggerita' (1994) was published Tony started with the Fiat 8V project which was almost automatically linked to SIATA.

Even though Tony has now acquired a Siata Daina, he feels that it is more important for him to collect old negatives and slides on motorsport. During my research for Otto Vu, I was offered the chance to buy a collection of glass plate negatives all on racing, taken at Spa-Francorchamps from the late '20s and the Liege Rome Liege rallye. With my photography background on hand and the knowledge of (sometimes) high copyright fees I knew that this was a one-time chance and I bought it. (the Fiat 8V 'OttoVu' book-cover shot is one of that collection).

Since then Tony has purchased other collections, mostly from California. Three of these American collections are the basis for my book 'Weekend Heroes'. A 600 page, massive work on the early road races in California, published in original color.

After that came 'Ten days in Sicily'. The book is based on a story of four British young men who went to Sicily in May 1966 to watch the last real road race, the Targa Florio. Arriving in time for the Syracuse Grand Prix, they drove their Fiat 124 saloon press car to Syracuse to watch this first GP race in Europe for the new three-litre formula.

The title of my latest book is 'SportErfolge' about Porsche (previously unpublished photos of Porsche sports and racing cars, 1951-1963).
