Ever since my first visit to the International Motor Racing Research Center (IMRRC, Watkins Glen, NY) in 2013, I have been inspired to expand and grow my own, personal library of auto racing literature (books/magazines/programs/etc.).
At that point I already had a decent collection, but after seeing the vast and assorted holdings at IMRRC I decided to kick it up a notch and get serious. I began searching used books stores and antique shops in what I like to call my quest for “diamonds in the rough”. When I make a new discovery, it is certainly a great day!
Coming up in 2020 I plan to expand my blog to include reviews of these gems. But for now here’s a glimpse of some of my recent finds. Enjoy! …..TJ
