Generally motorsport photography involves capturing images that will supplement the stories being told by reporters but, every now and then, a photo, or series of photos, will become the story.
In the early stages of a Lotus Challenge race at Phakisa Freeway, just outside Welkom, Rob Gearing went slightly wide through one of the fastest corners on the circuit. His rear wheel touched the grass, turning his car sideways. He then came back across the track, making contact with Jeff Gable and then flying through the air before coming to a halt in a smoking wreck. Luckily, both Rob and Jeff emerged unscathed.
