About this project

One of five artists commissioned to present on a national and international platform during three of Silverstone’s most prestigious motor sport events: the 2011 AirAsia British Grand Prix (MotoGP), the 2011 Formula One British Grand Prix, and the Silverstone Classic, to be held at Silverstone Circuit in June and July 2011.

Jo has explored one of the most fundamentally important aspects of the sport: the continuing obsession with speed and performance of racing cars through aerodynamics.
