Confirmed Petrol Head first and foremost, who happens to enjoy photography as a hobby.
I was bitten by the motor sport bug at a young age and prefer long distance sports car racing over single seaters. I also love the passion and enthusiasm of the owners and drivers of historic race cars and find this form of motorsport, as well as rallying, the most spectacular because of the lower grip levels and loose style of driving employed.

    Color is OK for a racer, don’t tell me they came from the factory this color! LOL! oh, sorry, I meant colour!

  • I can only imagine that the colour was picked by one of the fairer sex who had no idea the effect that colour choice has on residual values.

    It was a tongue in cheek comment, about the colour that is, not the shot. I think it is revolting.

  • Aha! Sarcasm doesn’t come across on t’internet very well. Glad we agree.
