Glencoe Grand Prix – Special Project

Jon Knouse, the promoter for the Glencoe Grand Prix, asked me to join a team he has put together to develop a coffee-table book featuring the Glencoe Grand Prix.  I’m pretty excited about this venture because it will include interviews and other interesting information, alongside photos of the event.  The group working on this project include John Mullin (Tribune, SI.com) as the lead writer, several freelance writers, Jay Mirasol, Anna Inabinet, me and one other photographer who I haven’t yet met.

In our brainstorming session we came up with the following as ideas for features: amen corner, random locals watching the race from their driveways, winners from last year who are returning to defend the win, pro racers who travel to races and make very little money, the local racer with an interesting story (is that you?), Chicago Cuttin Crew (and their bus!)… What interesting ideas do you have?  Why should we feature you?  What interesting title idea do you have?

This project will be a labor of love and we hope you’ll enjoy the finished product.  Super exciting!
