When Sex Was Safe – Unique & Limited Gallery Book

$65

There was a time ‘When Sex Was Safe and Motor Racing Bloody Dangerous’. But what was it like? And what exactly happened?

Our first ever motor racing book – made possible by the talented automotive publishers, Waft – tells the stories behind some of the most thrilling moments in automotive history, accompanied by 21 of our breathtaking and meticulously crafted artworks. The book dives into what motor racing was like in the 1930s and takes a closer look at the drivers and cars from one of auto racing’s most dangerous time periods. It’s a book we’re immensely proud of, and one that anyone can easily lose themselves in.

Historical stories
When fact is better than fiction

Many of the historically accurate stories behind our artworks are more exciting, more sensational and more gripping than any kind of motorracing fiction. From a last-gasp mid-race driver swap, to a racing heroine who out-drove her male counterparts, the stories are truly awe-inspiring.
