A few weeks back a longtime friend of mine invited me along to Oulton Park with him to watch the BTCC rounds 10, 11 and 12. I have to admit, I don’t enjoy Motorsport to the same level as he does, but It certainly can be entertaining! I knew this would be a great opportunity for capturing some great photographs so off we went.
Unfortunately we arrived late so missed our chance at the Pit Walk which would have probably given some interesting shots never the less I got some shots I am happy with and in the end, that’s all that matters
As with the last two outdoor sporting events I have been to, I spent most of the day using Manual on my camera an pre-focusing for the panning and fast moving car shots. For this event, I rented a Canon EF 70-200 f/4 L IS USM so that I’d have the reach to try to fill the frame with the cars but it seems I still had to crop most of my photos in!
Aside from the look, sound and smell of the track and cars making these events – Paddock and Grid Girls certainly do add a certain allure to the whole sport!
Here are some of my photos from the event – The rest can be seen on my Google+ Album (128 photos)
