"I like the change in direction, editorially speaking, for this year's book," expressed Thawley. "We saw such a fantastic year of racing in both divisions of SPEED World Challenge and I think this book really captures the excitement. The format includes a race by race recap of the 11 race schedule with coverage of both Touring Car and the GT divisions."

"The 2004 edition was great, but this year's book promises to be exceptional and a must-have for any SPEED World Challenge fan," SCCA Vice President of Marketing Garret Mudd said. "John's excellent photography combined with his skills in layout and composition really shine in the Year In Review 2005."

"I've gone to extraordinary lengths regarding the production quality of this year's book," Thawley continued. "From the page design to the bindery, every detail has been revisited, changed and audited. We are using the finest Italian linens for our covers, smooth high-quality matte 100# cover stock for each and every page, and design elements typically reserved for only the finest art books. One of the most exciting features of the books is the full-bleed border-less images including several two-page spreads. The images truly remain faithful in reproduction to their photographic counterparts."

The SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge Year in Review 2005 captures all the action, color and excitement of the 2005 SPEED World Challenge season. Thawley's photographs will allow you to relive the season for many years to come.

The SCCA book coincides with Thawley's American Le Mans Series book, The 2005 Collection, Champions released in October. The Champions Collection, which includes a limited print leather bound edition is also available online at and in the ALMS Shoppe at

Shipping is slated to begin the first week in November.
