A Note on Collection Development:
The Research Center is actively seeking additional documentation to enrich its material holdings. We are always glad to receive rare and reference books, periodicals (especially complete runs and rare titles), programs, prints, films, and posters. We are especially interested in manuscript items such as drivers' diaries; the research notes of motor racing journalists; club, sanctioning body, corporate, and team records; scrapbooks; and other unique items that express the enthusiasm and virtuosity of the people who have shaped motorsport. We would also appreciate historical videos from any genre of motorsport.
