About Racing Images
Racing Images ( is a web publication and photo service for motor sport photos. With the pictures on Racing Images we are trying to bring you the atmosphere from the world of speed. We feel the images speak for themselves more than thousand words ever can.

We are mainly concentrating on Finnish national motor sport, especially the Super 2000 Race series from which we provide the photos as well as race reports and results. We are also photographing many other events such as Formula 1 tests. We are also offering our photos for purchase for both personal and commercial or publication use. You can get more information here.

Racing Images website has been opened in 1998 by three motor sport fans, who live in Helsinki, Finland. All the members have been together all the time. We have experience of motor sport photography since 1996. From 2004 we have mostly used digital equipment. Before that we were shooting slide film. Our speciality is to try shoot more creative and visual pictures which differ from the most common press photos. Our photos have been published in magazines and adverts in Finland and other countries.

We are happy to receive any kind of feedback, be it positive or negative.
