Yes I know not every one is into motor sport, but I am in a big way and that's speedway. I've been attending races all over South Australia, Victoria and New South Whales since 1976.
The early 1970's saw riders use a converted gass mask to protect themselves from the mud and dust. The 1970's also saw Japanese made bikes come onto the seen replacing the old British made machines.
It was also commen to see up to 6 riders on the track so the competition would have been tough.
I wanted the viewer to feel that they were part of the action, taking a brief moment to look over the shoulder to see how close other in the field are.
