Motorsport Images brings alive over a century of motorsport with the world’s richest image archive

Motorsport Network today consolidated its multiple investments in illustration and image archives under a new brand identity, Motorsport Images, drawing together the most comprehensive record of more than a hundred years of motorsport accessible through a brand new web platform

Motorsport Images brings alive over a century of motorsport with the world’s richest image archive

Motorsport Images has been conceived as a new brand to unify the various archives and collections that have been acquired, catalogued and progressively digitised over the last two years and now offers 23+ million images dating from the 1894 Paris-Rouen race to last weekend's British Grand Prix.

As such, the new brand launched today represents a rich repository of automotive and motorsport history, including the extensive LAT Images collection, Sutton Images, Rainer Schlegelmilch's portfolio and Giorgio Piola's technical drawings. With new acquisitions to be announced in the near future, the new platform provides all of the essential functionality to be able to search and unlock the depth of resource in the world's largest archive of its kind.

The new Motorsport Images platform has been developed with an intelligent search engine built expressly to serve the specialist domain requirements of the motorsport and automotive industry. The search is powered by a proprietary tagging system that provides detailed metadata for every photo, delivering a powerful research capability for customers.

The new Motorsport Images platform also includes a house-developed pricing algorithm with high-fidelity licencing options to provide customers with the very best price solution for every application.

"Never before has the entire history of motorsport been visible under one brand identity and in one place," said James Allen, Motorsport Network's EMEA President, "not only for our clients, brands and teams that use our images, but now also for the digital public to browse and consume.

"We have been painstakingly transferring photos that date back to 1894 into the Motorsport Images archive. For the sport, its fans and generations to come, we are proud to say that we are protecting the history and heritage of motoring and motorsport."

The new Motorsport Images site has not been designed exclusively for enterprise use, however and also includes a curated fan homepage with hand-picked collections from contemporary races including 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Motorsport fans can sign up to the email newsletter to have the sport's most spectacular images delivered to their inbox each week.

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
