Photographer's Note

Last year (2008) I went to the Eastern Creek Raceway (near Blacktown - Sydney) to watch people drive V8 race cars. People, like you and me, can walk off the street and pay to drive a V8 race car for three laps around the circuit. Of course there is about one hour of theory, polocies & procedures which you must listen too prior to them allowing you to get in one of their V8s and tear around the track (with a professional race driver seated with you in the passenger seat).

I grabbed this shot while a group were waiting for next drive. You can feel the tension and pressure coming from the would be drivers while the nervously wait their turn to get into the driver seat.

Cheers, Graham.
