Motoring Past Vintage Publishing

Motoring Past is the home of Western Australian motor racing history. For the past 10 years, we have have been producing a range of booklets that bring to life the fascinating stories behind the early days of motoring and motoring racing in Western Australia.



There are tales of thrills and spills in the early days of motor racing on street circuits in country towns. The hardships of attempting to break cross country speed records on roads that were little more than dirt tracks. The controversy behind Grand Prix racing in Perth.


Colourful characters and their unconventional machines are the fascinating subjects of this range of booklets. Extensive research including access to personal archives, interviews, and original source materials, plus the publication of many unseen photographs make these a must read for any motoring or history fan.


New publications are being worked on so keep coming back for more riveting reads.


Go to the Shop Page for an irresistible preview of the booklets currently available.
