Photographer Peter Roebuck Honoured for 50 years Service in Speedway

Peter Roebuck - Fine service in Speedway Photography for over 50 years

Peter Roebuck was recently honoured for his outstanding photographic contribution to the sport of Speedway.

Peter has been photographing Speedway events around the country for over 50 years.

Western Australia is where Peter resides and predominantly his photographic exploits involve not only the iconic Motorplex and Bunbury venue, but all WA’s country tracks like Collie, Shark Bay, Kalgoorlie and Ellenbrook just to name a few.

He is officially the longest serving Speedway Photographer in WA (and possibly the country) and has stirred our senses with great images over the decades. Great Photographers, great cars, great teams and great venues – that’s WA for you !!!

Peter was also awarded a commemorative plaque with two classic shots of his - one yesteryear image (48/215 Holden) and one current day image (Late Model at the Plex)

Peter is one of very few lens pros who have the skill, determination and capability to capture quality action Speedway shots using the technique called “Available Light”. (Huge lens and No Flash !)

I am sure you will agree Peter’s service to the industry is unparalled and the shots he gets for us ooze clarity and detail —– detail that would perhaps otherwise be lost in flash photography.

Well done Peter, and thanks sincerely for all your hard work and devotion to Speedway.

A well earned award mate !

Here’s a couple of Peter’s shots we love here at Torque Tube…..
