Aces Cafe @ Zwartkops Raceway
This was at Zwartkops Raceway here in South Africa on race day. It’s drivers briefing and all the drivers gather in the cafe while the Clerk of the Course gives a whole safety-first speech, etc. I spot this bad ass mother###er of a driver. I mean, just look at him. It would have been more apparent had you been able to see the “No Smoking” sign right behind him….but the dork was standing in the way!
And there was my juxtaposition I wanted to convey. The contrast between these two drivers’ characters was intriguing for me. However, this is off-circuit, and when you’d think you wouldn’t want to mess with the bad ass mother###er on-track, I’d actually keep my eye out for the dork. You don’t judge books by their covers in racing, and there’s a beast lurking in that dork, I assure you ;)
