Abstract :

This illustrated book gives an exclusive insight into the most exciting era in motorsport history. Marianne Fürstin zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn took advantage of the hours and let her camera speak for her. In the right place at the right time. With the perfect feeling for the moment and the composition.

The result: large-format racing photographs from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, certificate and contemporary document at the same time. Because the princess knew how to capture the mood and at the same time capture it - in the middle of the VIP area and also away from the race tracks.

After an exciting conversation with the princess about photography, the viewer enjoys completely unseen insights into the world's great race tracks and the celebrities at the races: from the Nürburgring to Spa, from Monza to the Mille Miglia. The opulent image concludes with a very personal look from her son Peter Prinz zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn of his mother's work.

Marianne Fürstin zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn was born in Salzburg in 1919. "Manni", as she is affectionately known in celebrity circles, is a great-great-great-granddaughter of the Austrian empress Maria Theresa. The photographer has photographed international celebrities as a social expert for almost 50 years. These included Hollywood greats such as Steve Martin, Dennis Hopper and Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as star conductors Leonard Bernstein and James Levine, heads of state, ministers and business bosses such as Henry Ford or cigar legend Zino Davidoff.
