GALLERY 29: Best of the US - Nascar

Is it art or is it advertising? A question that could easily be applied to this spot.

Beautiful, abstract streaks of colour and light fill the screen, their visual impact augmented by dramatic voiceover and sound design which gradually reveal that we are inside the head of a Nascar driver.

As well as presenting the sport in an entirely original light, director Peter Thwaites brilliantly captures all the speed and excitement of the race, treating the viewer to a vivid taste of what it's like in the driving seat.
