ISDT 1960: British Entrants Photographed by Erwin Jelinek

Excellent blog post about the British Entrants of the 1960 ISDT.

Speed Track Tales

In a recent blog here, I re-introduced visitors of Speedtracktales to one of the professional photographers without whom much of this archive of the event would be a very inadequate experience. Erwin Jelinek like many attended most events taking hundreds if not thousands of images. Whilst many end up acquired by image libraries where they more or less go to be forgotten and never seen again, Erwin left his collection to his national archive for public access in 1989 and ultimately recently technology and funding have been bought together by the Technical Museum of Vienna for whom I am very much endebted for the wealth of material they have made available for everyone across Europe.

This post features many of the images taken by Erwin of the British riders in the ISDT 1960:
