Needell Sr was a boat designer who became the “Jean-Marie Balestre of powerboat racing” according to Tiff, who briefly tried his hand at speed on the wet stuff. But his first love was always racing on four wheels. He bought a little second-hand Pal M4 camera to capture his heroes and developed the films himself in a lab at boarding school. The results filled family scrapbooks, which Tiff dug out and dusted off as he began work on his book.
Racing drivers usually only visit tracks to compete, but Tiff is different. Like most of you reading this, he first loved the sport sitting on a spectator bank with his family. Here, he shows us the evidence.
