This book is part of an art project
The quality of the pictures and the way the subject is approached, prove that this is art. The German Holger Gruss has made a special book about slot racing. Unique in its kind.
The book “Carrera Carrera” has no text but only high-quality photographs. The images of the 1/24 scaled slot cars are taken on a Carrera race track with scenery.
Beside the nice cars you can enjoy pit girls in style of the 60s. These girls in racy atmosphere are photographed at the Rockingham Circuit and the Nuremberg Ring.
… that you can hear the tiny racing cars zoom right by you.
