GREAT BRITISH RACING DRIVERS AT GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED 2023.
AS PART OF THEIR 30th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS, GOODWOOD HAS INVITED INDIRA AND HER GBRD PROJECT TO JOIN THEM AT THE 2023 FESTIVAL OF SPEED, WHERE THERE WILL BE A DEDICATED GBRD EXHIBITION TO LAUNCH THE BOOK.
Featuring photographs from the GBRD book, the exhibition will have opportunities for people to buy the book and order prints. There will also be opportunities for key drivers to sign copies for the public. The exhibition will take place in the central cricket pitch area, and will be available to everyone at the festival for the full four days. With an expected footfall of over 210,000 visitors, the exhibition is set to be an extraordinary honouring of motorsport legends, appealing to fans of all ages. There are exciting opportunities to Partner with us.
Great British Racing Drivers (GBRD) is a unique collection of new photographs celebrating Britain’s most iconic and inspirational drivers of the past, the present, and stars of the future. It features over 100 drivers from karting kids to F1 legends, captured in settings linked to their motorsport story or illustrating their personalities away from the track and will appeal to both lovers of photography and motorsport fans. Whilst not every driver is a champion, they are all inspiring in many different ways … and may even inspire a future driver or two !
There are men, women and kids. World, European and British Champions. Knights of the Realm, CBEs, OBEs, MBEs. Dogs, horses and even a lightsaber ! Take a look at a small selection.
The inspiration came from photographing at Goodwood Festival of Speed surrounded by these legends of motorsport and a desire to do something different from my usual work - editorial portraits. Beginning in 2014 with Sir Stirling Moss, John Surtees and Sir Jackie Stewart. I’ve travelled 1000s of miles around the UK to capture more than 100 drivers in settings and locations that link to their motorsport story or illustrate their personalities away from the track. With an ever increasing list of drivers to photograph, GBRD is definitely an on going project.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed meeting and getting to know all the drivers. They’ve all been great company, good fun, highly entertaining, extremely generous with their time and have shown great support for the project. They are all delighted about the creation of this unique catalogue and were excited that GBRD would be the very first visiting exhibition featured at The Silverstone Interactive Museum in 2019 -2021. See what some of them have to say.
It’s not only the drivers who have been very helpful and supportive. The ongoing support and assistance from the BRDC, MSUK and the Duke of Richmond has been invaluable. The Duke, with his knowledge and passion for both photography and motorsport, has written the exhibition foreword and been exceptionally generous in facilitating the Goodwood Estate as a location throughout the project. I am thrilled and honoured that GBRD has been invited to participate in the Festival of Speed 30th anniversary celebrations.
Currently GBRD is exhibiting at Motorsport UK, Bicester Motion. Please take a look around the site and join me on instagram and twitter (@gbrdphotos) I would love to see your comments.
I am delighted that GBRD is supporting Sir Jackie Stewart's Race Against Dementia charity by donating 10% of all print and book sales.
