Girardo & Co., already a well-known vintage car dealer, is now offering gearheads the ultimate online rabbit hole — a searchable catalog of more than 3 million motorsport photos.
The Girardo & Co. Archive recently purchased Photo4, an Italian library of motorsport and automotive photos from 1980 through 2021.
Now, clients can log on, search for photos and purchase high-resolution electronic images.
Many of the photos have never been published. The photos cover the last four decades of Formula 1 and other types of racing, including rallying. Other photos show sports and touring cars.
Here are some of the race series covered in the archive:
World Rally Championships
World Endurance Championships
“Never has the phrase ‘knowledge is power’ been so meaningful, and, in addition to being another vital research-oriented string to our bow, the Girardo & Co. Archive will no doubt prove to be an invaluable resource tool for everyone, from collectors and historians to journalists and enthusiasts,” said a Girardo & Co. press release.
