Roy Nockolds earliest works were created as a child during the Great War, depicting Zeppelins and biplanes dog fighting in the night sky. In the early 1920s, he started visiting Brooklands and his interest turned to painting racing cars in action on the banking. His early pictures were often published in the motoring press, including Autocar magazine which helped establish his career as an illustrator and professional artist. It is however for his oil paintings that Nockolds is best
remembered, mainly produced in the pre-war and immediate post-war periods and depicting the great
motor races, the cars and their drivers.
