About the Book
The weekend of August 24, 25, and 26, 2007 saw the return of Champ Car to the circuits of Europe, after an absence of four years. The circuit of Zolder, Belgium hosted the first of two European Champ Car races. The second one was held one week later in Assen, The Netherlands. The races were ideal opportunities for the European racing fans to get a close look at this fan friendly American motor racing category.
This book gives the reader a pictural impression of the Zolder event, which was dominated by three-times champion Sebastien Bourdais from France, on his way to his fourth Champ Car title.
Features & Details
Patrick Beckers is from Maastricht, The Netherlands. He has been taken pictures since 1981, but it really became a hobby from 1987 onwards. He started his photograph-career with motor-racing pictures. These days, architecture photography is his specialty, although once or twice a year, he still turns up at motor-racing events. From 1998 til 2008, he travelled around the world to take pictures of the world's tallest skyscrapers and he even released some books on this subject. Since 2012, taking pictures of European castles has been his main objective. Many of his (architecture) pictures have been used in books, magazines, leaflets, and on other websites. His website, his photography, his publishing and other journalistic work have always been done as a hobby, with no direct means of commercial profit. The little profit, if any, he makes, he uses to update his photo equipment and to pay for his travel expenses.
