Thank you all for your entries to our 25-book giveaway, which we launched in September last year to coincide with the company's 25th anniversary. We had a great response with some superb entries, and as a thank you for all of the kind words and photos, we've decided to award prizes to 5 runners-up, each of whom will receive a £25 Veloce gift voucher.

And the winner is ...
Iain Gordon

Ian Gordon chose La Carrera Panamericana by Johnny Tipler as his favourite Veloce book.
Congratulations, Ian, We hope your prize gives you many months of happy reading!

"Amongst my many books, my favourite book from the Veloce stable is Johnny Tipler's wonderful weighty tome on La Carrera Panamericana. It's a truly wonderful book, packed full of information and excellent photography that brings this famous event alive and is surely the best guide book and inspiration for anyone considering entering or even just following the route of this incredible historic event.

I love how the book brings the event truly to life by covering not only all the competitors and their machines, but also capturing the very essence of the event with atmospheric photography of the area and its people and culture and the minutiae of daily life interspersed with an historic motor race. With the superb colour full-page photographs, I can almost hear the brass salsa bands jumping out of the page!" – Iain Gordon

"Choosing just one title for entry into your competition is extremely hard as I have long been impressed by the high quality, passion and knowledge of your company and the authors
you publish." – James Foreman

"I love your books because they are written so well!" – Federico Lago

"As far as a favorite ... each book fulfills a certain "need," I can't say I like the Bahama Speed Weeks more than the Mexican RR or the T40 more than the T46/50, for example. They're all great in their own way." – Ron Scoma

"I wish to congratulate you all on the amazing milestone of 25 years of publishing some of the greatest automotive books ever written." – Jack Shepherdson

From now on, any reader photo we feature in On the Grid will automatically win a £25 Veloce gift voucher.
Be imaginative, we want to see your pics; if we like it we'll use it here!

Thank you for joining us in celebrating our 25th anniversary.
