These series of images are an extract from my current project that centres on what happens behind the scenes at various club motorsport events. Focusing on short oval racing, my work explores a motorsport discipline that is a raw, unvarnished alternative to the international competitions that currently take place. Being a huge fan of all motorsport, I found myself to be admiring the commitment these individuals put in to get these cars out for the next race. Whether it means sawing off an exhaust or using a sledge hammer to put a car back into shape, the passion, adrenaline and determination these families and friends share is a testament to grass roots motorsport.
