The Dragster Chronicles


Photographer Dom Romney has been one of the most interesting photographers to document the UK Drag Racing scene for the last few years. Though Drag racing in the UK has always been perceived as somewhat of a poor relation of motorsport – as demonstrated by this selection of Dom’s work – it’s a rich area for photography. Everything about it is extreme and focussed. The machines are outrageous, and the personalities are down to earth but passionate (not to mention possessing the courage of lions). To accelerate from zero- to over 200MPH in less than six seconds over a quarter mile, you’ve got to be a beautiful sort of nutcase. Enjoy the  visual spectacle.
