About the author


Tony Gardiner studied graphic design and illustration at the West Sussex College of Art and Crafts in Worthing during the late 1950s. It was during this period that his love of the motor car came to the fore, spurred on by the famous victory of the Ecurie Ecosse team of Jaguar D Types winning at Le Mans in 1957. Tony's interest became obvious when his college progress report for 1957/58 stated that he “has a weakness for converting all his compositions into motoring or other mechanical illustrations; this must be curbed”. On leaving college, Tony worked as an illustrator in the aviation industry, and then freelanced for various car magazines and within the automotive industry. Tony now specialises in illustrations used in motoring publications and private commissions for companies such as Rover Japan, Vauxhall, Peugeot and Motorsport, plus drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss and Derek Bell. He is also an author in his own right, having written Motor Racing at Goodwood in the '60s, The Brighton National Speed Trials, and RAC Rally Action, all of which are personal recollections of the famous motoring events, and published by Veloce.
