Club motorsport, which is what keeps circuits going, gets a bit of a raw deal in terms of coverage. A couple of pages in the back of Autosport and Motorsport news is about it. Plenty of websites covering F1 down to BTCC but not much for the club racer. So I've decided to have a go at doing something about it.
I've set up www.racingexposure.com/blog and am seeking contributors. Looking for photographers but also people who can string a few sentences together. Got some help from the guys over at Talk Photography, but I'll mention it here as well.
Also looking for insights from racers, and ideally would like to give out logins to people from various race series so they can post news and reports about their own little corner of motorsport.
PM me or email me at andrew at norwich photo dot co dot uk if you feel inspired to help.
I can't offer payment, but I can offer bylines and links to your own websites. Maybe one day the site will take off and I can pay people, but thats a long way in the future.
So, if you've gone to watch some grass roots motorsports, be it sprinting, rallying or circuit racing and wish to help, get in touch.
My scope is club motorsport, and by club motorsport I am thinking of people who are doing it just for the fun of it, with no ambition of being a paid driver anywhere, and I'd class the upper tier of this as being Porsche Carrera Cup or Ginetta G50s.
In just over a week I've had over a thousand visits and getting on for 4000 page views. I've had a lot of emails offering support and well wishes as well.
