Automotive Event Images Top 12 for 2018 - Automotive Event Images

Its that time again when we sit back and reflect of a full on year of Motor Sport Photography.
This year was an action packed year as we covered a vast amount of Motorsport events which saw our images being published world wide in various mediums..We are very humbled that we are able to do what we do, and It is with great pleasure that we are able to attend these events and interact with Pit Crews, Drivers, Riders and the fans that make up all the motoring events that we love.Our idea to just pick out 12 of our best images turned out to be quiet a big task with so many images not making the list but were up there with our favourites but there can be only 12...The images below are in no particular order ...feel free to click on any image to go the gallery from the event...
A massive thank you goes out to all the Drivers, Teams , Clubs, Fans, Media outlets  for supporting Automotive Event Images throughout 2018.

Alex Mee - Sunset Strip Mildura

Thirteen year old Alex Mee has today made treasured memories at Mildura’s Sunset Strip Dragway thanks to the efforts of a dedicated group. Growing up in a drag racing family, Alex has always dreamt of racing himself however after being diagnosed with the terminal disease, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), it appeared this dream would never come true. However, today Alex realised his dream of travelling the drag strip, with the car-loving youngster able to ride in a specially-liviried Junior Dragster as it was pushed by a golf cart to the start line and then down the drag strip* while his family, friends and racing community watched on decked out in special 'Alex Mee' race gear.
When we were asked to photograph young Alex during his pass down the 1/8 Mile track we were humbled and thrilled that we could document the occasion in order to promote awareness of the disorder and to help the family by providing some images from the occasion as a keepsake.It was a pleasure to meet Alex and his Family. Automotive Event Images donated all images of Alex during the event to the family in order to promote the disorder.

Junior Dragsters South Coast Nationals

Round 4 of the Andra Summit Racing Equipment South Coast Nationals
South Coast Raceway - Junior Dragsters Photo Shoot. November 10/11 2018
We were thrilled when we were asked to photograph the Junior Dragsters Racers at the track after the day one action of racing.
The Young Junior Dragsters, their teams and their families are trying to promote the Juniors Racing Series and show some of the sport in the light of fun and safe competitive racing that is enjoyed by all racers, team and supporters. 
Currently the Junior dragsters are not permitted to race in the state of Western Australia after an accident a year ago suspended all racing events for the Juniors by the WA government.. We attend a vast amount of Drag racing events and give the upmost support to the teams and families of the Junior Dragsters..and were happy to assist all involved in the lobbying to the Minister for Sport and Recreation the Hon Mick Murray MLA to get the ban lifted.
