Official SPEED World Challenge 2004 Yearbooks Announced by John Thawley
Detroit -- Motorsports photographer, John Thawley, announced today the release of a series of photo books commemorating the 2004 SPEED World Challenge GT and Touring Car Series. The books are officially licensed by SCCA Pro Racing Ltd. Titles include:
2004 SPEED World Challenge Yearbook
2004 Audi Champion RS6
2004 Cadillac CTS-V
2004 Turner Motorsport BMW 325i
Three of the books will focus on individual teams from the World Challenge Series. Choosing from over 25,000 images, Thawley has created a book on each of the Cadillac CTS-V and the Champion-Audi teams from the GT Series and the Turner Motorsport BMW team from the Touring Car Series.
"I'm really excited about this project," stated Thawley. "Utilizing print-on-demand technology, I am able to offer individual books tailored to a specific audience. When I looked back on the year, certain teams really stood out. Audi and Cadillac went down to the wire with their factory-backed teams tied going into the final race of the season. And, Turner Motorsport's domination of the Touring Car division was amazing. With three car's in the top-10, a driver's championship and rookie of the year title, it's a story that needs to be told and remembered."
Each book is hardbound and 9"x11" in size. There are 30 pages featuring over 45 full color images. The books will retail for $49.95.
Additionally, Thawley has created the SCCA Pro Racing's 2004 SPEED World Challenge Series Yearbook. The 2004 SPEED World Challenge Yearbook features each of the 10 top finishing teams in the drivers' championship in both the GT and Touring Car Series.
"I've been so impressed with the racing in World Challenge," Thawley continued. "This is a highly competitive series and I wanted to create a book that recorded the teams and their accomplishment of finishing in the top-10. These are hard earned titles."
The 2004 SPEED World Challenge yearbook is hardbound, 9"x11" in size with 50+ pages and more than 100 full color images. The book retails for $69.95 and can be ordered online at www.johnthawley.com
In addition, teams, fans and readers will be able to order individual prints from the books in sizes from 8x10 to 20x30, also available online.
