Based on a 2015 audit, racing photo archives contains over 500,000 photographs by David Allio from over 360 race tracks. Nearly 300,000 of these historic photographs are on traditional silver-based film – mostly 35mm. Of these, about 80-percent are black-and-white, 4-percent are color negatives, and the remainder are color slides.
Many people have provided valuable guidance throughout my career. The list is very, very long. My sincerest Thank You! goes out to each and every one of you.
Thank you to my family, as well as Chris Blair, Mike Beam, and Chris Carrier for their personal involvement, encouragement, and assistance in the development of my film archives into an online presentation.
