Three Points of Contact
The Drivers of The Race of Champions
By: Jeff Zwart
The annual Race of Champions brings together Racers from Formula One, the World Rally Championship, NASCAR, Champ Car, Motocross, and other disciplines compete in identical cars in a series of events. Renowned photographer Jeff Zwart, himself an accomplished racer, photographed the competitors from 2006 and 2007.
The book's title refers to Zwart's dramatic portraiture concept. He photographed each racer's eyes, hands, and feet-the three contact points a driver uses to control his vehicle. Featured here are Michael Schumacher, Sebastien Loeb, Jimmie Johnson, Tom Kristensen, and Jenson Button, among others. Commentary from each racer accompanies each photo essay.
