With 2009 just upon us it was time for the motorsport fans annual pilgrimage to the Birmingham NEC and autosport international. Many Talk Torque members attended the show over the 3 days, some looking for inspiration for their race / track day projects, others to just fuel their motorsport obsession. For me its a great opportunity to photograph some cars that I would never be able to get that close to anywhere else. The 2009 show was teamed up with the Pistons Heads show which allowed a selection of their members to show of their cars, they had a nice selection of cars from minis, to Porsche’s and TVR’s. As usual the show had much to offer to motorsport fans, David Coulthard, Murrey Walker, Martin Brundle and Allan McNish among others were in attendance, there was an exhibition of David Coulthards career all the way from karting through to his final Red Ball racing F1 car. There was also the usual display of formula one cars. The live action arena displayed the usual adrenaline fueled in door racing and as ever was the centre piece to the show.
Feel free to flick through some of my photos from the day.
