The sound of the crowd settling for the start is a constant drum in the back of ones head. Fighting over seats, showing support for their favorite driver, and that constant pop-pop-pop of guns being fired in celebration. The cars one by one roar to life as their driver’s press the start button and frantically start making adjustments to bring the beast within under control. The sounds of the crowd now drowned out by the roar of engines, each driver focused on the road ahead and their own vision of victory. The intense smells of various forms of fuel and hot burnt rubber assault the senses, the vibration, intense heat, and riverets of sand blowing across animate the pavement surface into a living breathing thing. The yellow line hastily painted across it’s surface becomes not only the start of this brutal punishment, that both man and machine will endure, but also the finish when only one will be victorious, only one will be named the victor.
