Close Racing & Overtaking

A major element of on track action

It goes without saying that close racing, along with the ultimate promise of a pass or overtake, is a major part of the experience of motor sport.

Apart from overtakes afforded by the mis-fortune of other competitors or by strategies employed around pit stops we wait in anticipation of witnessing the excitement of a pass by one racer on another. The photographs here go some way in illustrating the potential of these moments.
