This tribute to Phil Hill opened on September 3 at the Petersen Automotive Museum. If any forum members have attended it would be appreciated if you would post your comments and photos here.

Has there been any news about the forthcoming "Inside Track", the book of photos taken by Phil during his racing career?

Doug should be able to answer that. He was very close to handing the work to the editor around Goodwood FOS time. He was impressed by the camera work.

I bought the 2012 Road & Track calendar, "A Champion's Photos", at Rennsport. Very nice photos. Here is a link:

Apparently the Tribute to Phil Hill on November 10th is sold out.

A billboard at Laguna Seca during the Monterey Historics in August. It was a pity there was no tribute (of which I was aware).

Good news about the progress on the book.

I stopped nagging DCN about it...I'm sure he thinks I'm a pest! Here's how long the gestation has been: Doug first "teased" the book in a thread I started back in 2004! I'm certain it will be one of those rare things that is truly well worth the wait.
