How does one get into Auto-Motive Photography

So i just recently left my job on Monday and now I'm thinking about getting into a new career. So i was wondering, how do you get into a career in motoring photography?

Is there anybody on these forums that work for a motoring magazine or newspaper?

Just want to know what steps to take.

Thanks for any advice...

Buy a camera and start going to events.

Talk to EVERYONE and tell them who you are and that your a photographer, and hope for a break.

Thats what I did when I stated my Ski-Phtoography adventure in college.

This is the process I am going and even with contacts from various dealerships/companies/media outlets it isn't easy. But don't back down it may take awhile but the time may come.
