2007 год. Dgv Drag racing is a down-to-earth form of motor sport that is both accessible and affordable. It fascinates an ever-growing community of fans from around the world. This has partly to do with the sport itself, but certainly also with drag racing's very individual brand of aesthetics when it comes to the cars and the people who drive, repair and admire them. Drag racing is a mix of uproariously loud, primordial displays of power and high-tech; its drivers love the sport but flirt openly with destruction and putting their lives in danger. Speed Kings presents photographs by Dirk Behlau that skillfully capture the adrenalin-fuelled atmosphere of suspense on and alongside the track, as well as the eroticism of the machines and the people who give their lives for a few seconds of the ultimate kick.
