In 2009, The Henry Ford acquired the collection of well-known photographer Dave Friedman. The collection documents over 60 years of automobile races and racecars across a wide variety of race types including Formula 1, Sports cars, Trans-Am, Can-Am and stock cars.

Now, over 10,000 images from the collection are available for viewing on Flickr.



So far we have posted images from races at iconic tracks like Laguna Seca, Riverside, Sebring, Watkins Glen, Indianapolis and Bridgehampton. We also have some of the early races at Pomona, Nassau, and even Dodger Stadium.

All the cars that defined international automobile racing are here too: Cobra, Lola, Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette, McLaren, Ford GT, Mustang and more.

Be sure to visit the site and then check back often as we add more images from this great collection.
