Been a while but the race season has started again. So taking a back to back trip to my favourite circuit. First a day of WEC with the astonishing Hypercars during the 6 hours of Spa and the weekend after Spa Classic. Found a nice new spot between Combes and Pouhon where you can get on eye level with the cars from visitor places (you just have to balance on a stump of wood to view over the fence ). All shot I think with the 80-200APO on my A99 except for the first for which I used the 500mirror.

1) Porsche Benelux Cup braking for La Source.


2) Toyota GR010 climbing Raidillon.


3) Ford is also in GT3 with their Mustang.


4) Ferrari 599 on top of Raidillon.



5) Easy catch in Bruxelles.


Then due to a heavy shunt on Kemmel straight involving the Cadillac the race was suspended for almost 2 hours. When they resumed the sun was almost down giving some nice soft lighting. I also underexposed some shots to give it a night feel.

6) Ferrari 599 through Eau Rouge.


7) Sistercar underexposed.


8) Extreme shutterspeed through Eau Rouge (BMW chasing Peugot).


9) Alpine A424 underexposed.


10) Porsche 935K3 up Raidillon.


11) Gimme flames


12) Porsche 908-03 exiting Combes.


13) From WEC to old school WEC - Ferrari 330P4

Impressive set of pictures. You're proof you don't need an A9 III to get great pictures. #2 and #4 are my favourites.

Some great action shots and nice panning skills
The compression from the 500mm mirror lens in #1 is great, I like the unconventional compositions in #2 and #4 and the flames and lines in #11 ar great too.
Not sure if the underexposure works for me. The shadows and light on the surface of the cars still reveal the bright sunlight.

But in total, well done Remko!

Your panning skills are great - except maybe #8- but the series more than make it up. The 500 is a great reason to use the 99. Great work Remco

Thanks Dutchies for the nice comments. I guess some of them are a bit experimental and a matter of taste. I can do the standard panning shot (hence the Porsche in Bruxelles) but also want to find new points of view like indeed #2 and #4 and the nice new low angle position in #12 and #13 and experiment with light and extreme shutter times. For #8 I used 1/10s with the cars coming towards me, pretty difficult technical but this one stood out for me as it expresses the thrill of driving on edge through Eau Rouge, some more color bleeding would have been nice to emphasis the action.

It's always good to experiment and try to find new approaches!
