Motor racing and photography have always been Roger's two main interests and during the mid 1960's he became both a competitor and official at numerous events throughout the country. At this time he was also inspired by the motor racing photography of Louis Klemantaski and Horst Baumann. Roger then decided to relinquish his trackside duties to concentrate on motor racing photography and with sponsorship from Agfa Gevaert's Advertising Dept he covered the main national and international events throughout the UK during 1968, 1969 and 1970. Roger was able to concentrate on the personalities and teams of the time as well as the action and this led to a number of his images being used in magazines, books and promotional media. An audio visual feature "Race" was also created for the Agfa Gevaert Lecture Programme.
