About Will Buxton:
A motor racing broadcaster, commentator and journalist, Will Buxton has had the rare pleasure of turning his great passion into something resembling work for the better part of 20 years. His career has taken him around the world countless times to report on everything from Formula 1 to World Rally to Indycar. While the happy mistake of falling into television as a Formula 1 pitlane reporter in the United States for the SPEED channel and later NBC Sports, followed by his current role as the first Digital Presenter in F1 history, has made him one of the most recognized faces and voices in the sport, his first love was and remains writing. Buxton lives in Oxfordshire, England.
We are very proud to be bringing inspirational talent from all over the racing world!

Featuring the World Renown Art Work of Artist Simon Ward
Simon Ward grew up surrounded by motorsports. He attended his first Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1972 at Brands Hatch at the age of eight years old.
His art captures the excitement and drama of the sport while focusing on the drivers, the cars, the circuits and all of the elements of historically significant scenes at various races. His portfolio encompasses momentous events from the 1930’s to current day action, often within a few days of the most recent race.
His art is collected throughout the world, including at the homes of some of his hero drivers, race circuits and corporate sponsors. His art is on permanent display at Sebring Airport as a tribute to the annual 12 Hours race there.
Much of Simon Ward’s art work can be viewed at: www.circuitbyinroads.com.
For the enthusiast who would like a painting of his or her own car, Simon will create a painting of their prized machine on a commission basis.
