Meet the Author

Tony Gardiner studied Graphic Design and Illustration at the West Sussex College of Art & Crafts in Worthing, during the late 1950’s. It was during this period his love of the motor car came to the fore, spurred on by the famous victory of the Ecurie Ecosse team of Jaguar D Types winning at Le Mans in 1957. This became clear when his progress report for 1957/58, stated “has a weakness for converting all his compositions into motoring or other mechanical illustrations, this must be curbed”. On leaving college he worked as an illustrator in the aviation industry, then to freelancing for various car magazines and then into the auto industry. Now specializing in illustrations in motoring publications and for private commissions for the likes of Rover Japan, Vauxhall, Motorsport, Pegueot, plus drivers such as Sir Stirling Moss and Derek Bell. Tony Gardiner’s work has graced the covers and pages of many motoring books and magazines. He is also an author in his own right, having published ‘Motor Racing at Goodwood in the Sixties’, ‘The Brighton National Speed Trials’ and ‘RAC Rally Action’, all of which are personal recollections of the famous motoring events.
