CELEBRATING THE 1980s, THE MOST DRAMATIC DECADE IN F1 HISTORY
From aero to turbo the 1980s had it all. Grand Prix racing had never experienced such power, nor indeed such spectacle. Built to perform for a single qualifying session, some engines were rated at 1400bhp though nobody was sure of the precise figure, as dynos were incapable of recording numbers of that magnitude. And it wasn’t just the cars, but the charismatic drivers at their helm: Senna, Prost, Mansell, Rosberg, Piquet, Arnoux and Berger, to name but a few.
The sumptuous images are the work of Paul-Henri Cahier and his late father Bernard, who founded what is now The Cahier Archive in 1952. They are two of the most respected photographers ever to have graced the world’s F1 circuits.
To celebrate an era that had it all, Motor Sport magazine is pleased to present this limited-edition calendar showcasing some of the many highlights in 12 stunning images. The perfect gift idea for any motor racing enthusiast.
