The racers series is the origin of Hei's photographic art. From the late 70s to the late 80s, Hei worked in racing environments, whether in Formula 1 or Moto GP.
His artistic approach to photography led to a different style of race reportage, capturing unconventional images and surprising moments.

With hindsight, these images could today be considered works of art, delighting fans of that "hard" racing era.
