Personal Archive Mining: January 17th, 2009.

Here are some photos from a round of Sprintcar racing at Speedway City, which I went to one night with my friend Dean, who's now living in Dubai. Stuck behind tall fences I couldn't really get any good photos of the actual racing, but there was some nice golden light as the sun went down, and colors in the sky at dusk which looked rather cool in combination with the lights on the track.

Sprintcar racing is a bit more interactive than a lot of motorsports. Racing on mud and clay while sliding sideways around the oval, the huge tyres flick up chunks of dirt up and over the fence quite regularly. So while you're watching them race, you also have to keep an eye out for incoming clumps of dirt as they go past.

All photos taken with a Nikon D70s and 18-70mm lens.
