Hi Neil - an excellent set. The only thing I can suggest is to use a slightly slower shutter speed to see if you can get some blur in the wheels. This will accentuate the sense of motion. I like to go to the track an see how slow I can pan .

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the feedback;

EK - I have several 'special spots' at Brands, more of which soon!

Frank - you mean like this?

Marcus Mussa's McLaren M1B



A700; 1/60th sec; f/11.0; 120 mm; ISO 100; Sony SAL18250

Kind regards, Neil.

@Owenn01, love that Bizzarini! (leading the pack in your first shot). Did you get any more shots of it? Nice set and you achieved your objective well in terms of variety. Must have been a fun day (with some good sounds to accompany the sights...)

Hi Barry,

You mean this Bizzarini...?



A700; 1/90th sec; f/13.0; 85 mm; ISO 200; SAL18250

Fabulous car and it's good to see someone else out there that knows what this is! Unfortunately whilst a leader early on it suffered problems (this was a 2 hour 'Gentlemans Race') and retired on lap 23. I've more to come from this meeting so keep your eyes peeled!

Kind regards, Neil.

Hi Barry,

Yep, that'd be the one. Great shot of a great car! And is that a Kiwi flag I spotted on it? (I'm an expat Aussie). It wasn't this Kiwi, was it?...

Hi Barry,

Nope - sorry, it's Roger Wills who, during this race weekend, attepmted to race in every single rce on the card; he even went out and hired a Formula Ford when he realised he didn't have one in his 'stable' when he got to Brands on Friday! The Bizzarini 5300 is his, as was a Mini Cooper S, a Mercury Cyclone, the McLaren M1B, a Williams FW05, a Lotus 92-5, an Elva Mk8 BMW and a BMW CSL Batmobile.... I struggled to keep up!

Kind regards, Neil.

Hi Owen, Wow, that certainly is impressive! Perhaps if I'd realised early, like he presumably did, that to get the things I coveted I'd need to get into finance things may have been different. But then again, probably not - oh well... Did he get sideways in the Cyclone, like the shot on his website?

Hi EK,

Some really varied machinery buried in there - love the mix in the first 'waiting for the start'; BMW 2002 and a Porsche 914 along with a load of other interesting stuff, then some fine pit images as well. I suppose I should 'trade images' with some from the other weekend (so many still to go through..... ):

1. 'Bad Boy' Intimidating an Elan



2. TR4 leads MGB



3. Contrasts



4. Marcos 1800GT rounding Druids



5. Five Abreast!



Finally - quiz of the day (but no prizes!); do you or anyone know what this is...?

6. Mystery car



And no, for a start, it's not an MG Midget derivative either....

Thanks for looking and kind regards, Neil.

That was an obscure one, particularly for us non-Brits! 1960 Turner MkII, like this one
