The Story of the Schneider air races

Colin van Geffen covers the history of the Schneider Trophy from its inception in 1912, to the last race in 1931 and beyond. A time when Britain led the world in aviation design and technology, and took pride in its achievements.

Colin spent over 30 years in materials management, procurement and Production Control. Following redundancies he became a self employed illustrator/artist covering most subjects in various styles from cartoon to formal and in a choice of media: pencil, pen and ink, watercolour or acrylics.
