Steadily going through my absurdly unsorted and excessive archives, some very wet Aston Martin racing from Donington in July 2012 is my latest upload:

That'll be the 9 hole golf course in the infield!

 

Just as a matter of interest the venue makes more money on the Saturday when we have either a sprint or a trackday than they do in the preceeding two weeks from the Golf Centre! However there is no way that we can prise another date out of them for another trackday.

Some days it all works out...

EDIT: Some days it does not work out: the photo shows the June meeting of the Cheshire Lotus Owners Group, today was the July meeting. It was brilliant sunshine when the CLOGs assembled but after an hour the sky turned black and what seemed like a whirlwind started stripping leaves and twigs from the trees. I (yellow car) decided to make a dash with the roof down, as I thought I could out-run the approaching storm. Ian (white car, owned from new) is obviously wiser and put his roof up, Brain (red car was undecided when I left but the roof on an S2 is not a job of five seconds to erect). Paul (blue car) had an engine fire this morning, fortunately no damage, so quite sensibly had appeared in a modern buggy.

Well I made it half way home before the torrential rain forced me to stop, as I could not see where i was going. I wrestled the roof into place but not before I was soaked to the skin and the car was full of water! Oh how we envy the owners of such things as the Alfso Duetto with their throw-over in 2 seconds hoods! An hour later: brilliant sunshine again. :well:

All that needed was one in Pistachio and another in Positano Yellow to complete the set.

Oooh, very happy with this one, a 1/30 Porsche pan from the TOCA weekend at Oulton Park in 2013 which I have just been sorting through. My slowest, successful pan yet.

Come on you TNF snappers; just because this forum has gone down the pan there is no need for us to give in. As I said in my originating post:

 

"After a positive response to my suggestion for a photography thread- here it is!
This is the place to discuss Motor Sports Photography, all contributions welcome from professionals through to happy snappers. Ask your questions, state your opinions, give advice, tell bad jokes, post your photos (if they don't easily fit into one of the other threads)."

 

No minimum standard on photos, some of the best shots here have been taken on Box Brownies, etc (check out the Aussie threads). It's dead easy for those of us with the right bit of plastic around our necks to take advantage but I love the shots from the boonies too.

Those pictures are just gorgeous ; if I took any myself I would post a couple but I stopped doing so about 15 years ago.Your Elan Sprint is stunning but don't you find all the ..ahem..decals on the windscreen a bit distracting ?

 

I do have access to some wonderful pictures of  the 1973 F1 season though - keep an eye  on Motor Sport for them.
