In the beginning

September 10, 2013  •  1 Comment

It is almost a year ago that I came up with the idea of putting a website together to show high quality images of Touring cars for all to see. I just didn't realise how time consuming it would be.

Many people had commented in the past, me included, that apart from a few specialised websites, as good as they are, there is not one site where you could go to view decent Touring Car Images.

I thought, put together a website with a small caption. How difficult would that be??  I would even add images from Championships and races from around the world... Easy?

First of all I had to find somewhere to host the site. At my third attempt I came across Zenfolio. I tried others, some with better layouts, but costs came into it and as none of these images would be for sale directly from the site. I did not want the site to cost me money.

Okay I will have a charge with the Zenfolio site, but it is minimal.

Next came the problem with other peoples images??? I was amazed how many people were not interested in having their images, fully credited and watermarked, on the site. But were happy to post them uncredited and with no watermark on Facebook and Flickr??

I have more than a few of my own to keep me occupied for many nights to come both scanning and placing on the site. I have found a couple of other photographers that have donated images to the site, to whom I am grateful.

If there is anyone else out there that would like to submit their images to the site, especially to help fill in the blanks, then please contact me.

Anyway, I hope you like the site, I have much more to do.

Peter.

Superb site Peter!

I am a massive fan of the old Super Touring era, and these photos are absolutely fantastic. No formula has quite gripped me like the Super Tourers. I think it was the magic of seeing 'my dads' car belting round the UK's best circuits that sucked me in to start with.

I am now a keen follower of the WTCC. My biggest regret is that i was never able to watch either the Euro STC or ETCC of 2001, as at the time i had no access to Eurosport.

Thank you for the site and i hope you can continue to develop it!
