The large stars were back at Circuit of the Americas last weekend so this shot just had to be taken. For F1 and, as far as I can remember, MotoGP, these were painted out for some reason. Rumours suggest that Bernie Ecclestone, F1 supremo, was worried that a blatantly nationalistic display such as this wouldn’t impress the international sponsors of his worldwide sport but, regardless of the reason, the trackside art was all stripes during my previous visits.
In this shot, Jamie Whincup of Red Bull Australia is seen driving towards turn 19 during the first of four “Austin 400” V8 Supercars races held at the track last weekend.
