An exhibition of F1 photos by Rainer Schlegelmilch opens in London later this month.

Schlegelmilch has captured Formula 1 history since the 1960s and the exhibition will include some of his most iconic pictures.

The organisers of the exhibit have kindly allowed me to reproduce two of them below including a personal favourite of mine, showing Stefan Johansson’s Ferrari spitting fire at Monaco in 1985.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of a new book of Schlegelmilch’s photography, “The Golden Age of Formula 1″. It is at the Proud Camden gallery on Chalk Farm road in London and runs from September 16th to October 24th.

If you’re planning to go to the exhibition, please let us know in the comments.

F1 fans in Singapore can visit another exhibition of Formula 1 photographs. “Moments in Motorsport” will be held at One Raffles Quay South Tower lobby from September 23rd to October 1st. It features photographs chosen by Rubens Barrichello, Sir Jackie Stewart and Getty Images photographers.

  1. I think I’m gonna go there tomorrow or on Saturday. Just a great coincidence this exhibition starts when I’m in London for the weekend :)

    Will there be an admission fee or is for free? Only prices I found are for buying picture replicas!? Have never been to an exhibition…

  2. So, has anyone been to the exhibition yet? Is it worth going to? For me its a good excuse to pop into London for a few beers with some mates.

    Any news on whethe there’s an entrance fee?

    1. Several of us went after the competition and although the pictures are excellent quality it’s quite a small exhibition, only one room.

  3. I’ve been there last week on Friday, liked it very much.

    Yes, there were only like 40 photos (estimated, not counted^^), but you could spend a lot of time with some of them ;-) Lots of Graham Hill and Spa pictures including one great shot of the Eau Rouge like I’ve never seen before from that era.

    And as it was my first visit to London and thus to Camden, having a look at the surrounding markets was just as nice ;-)
