Motorsport has moved on so much since its humble beginnings. Improvements to safety. The technical mastery. The sponsorship. The celebrity status. But when all is said and done, outside the competition is camaraderie, and underneath the helmet is a personality. Just like behind the cameras, there’s an individual, and a vision.

Our friends at Clashproduction have sent us this showreel of their best work from 2011. Here’s hoping 2012 proves to be just as successful.

James Gent first started as a freelance motorsport writer in the UK, before an urge to be paid a monthly wage saw him move to Dubai in late 2011. A keen motoring enthusiast, he hopes that one day his garage will hold a Lamborghini Countach, as well as a WRC Lancia Delta Integrale.
