The GN duo had an epic battle at Mallory last week-end; superb precision driving from both.

I've never seen a GN understeer before, and now there's two of them :rotfl:

GNs and 'Nashes have initial understeer, like any other [rear-drive] car with no differential. The characteristic oversteer we are used to is the really more of a tail-out powerslide and if you look at the photo and work out where they have come from I'm not sure that's not what they are doing.

A great day's racing at Brands Hatch on Saturday for the HSCC Superprix, sadly family matters prevented me going on Sunday.

Large grids and some close racing plus I had the pleasure of meeting Simon Arron for the first time.

The Formula 3 race was a highlight of the day for me. Pierre Lemasson's Martini Mk39 leads David Clark's Ralt and Sebastien Clouzeau's Martini Mk42

Posted Image
Sadly Clouzeau's Martini was rather second hand after this off at the exit of Druids and he was quite rightly rather upset about the damage.

I left the kerb of the hairpin in to give a clue which way they were going! I'm not sure that they were really understeering, they have both just put on a whole armful of lock and a split-second later the tails will be coming round as the boot goes in.

It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway - More wonderful photography, David. Many thanks. Pleased to read that the clash with Goodwood didn't affect the quality of the entry. The F3 race looked to be an excellent entry with various continentals boosting the field.

Yes, I understand that, but when Ron Footitt was racing the Cognac, he would have had it broadside before the corner, these modern tyres are far to grippy :lol:

News from David Abbott regarding the forthcoming F5000 season down under:

EARLY START FOR 10TH ANNUAL MSC F5000 SERIES SEASON
A starring roll at the annual Muscle Car Masters meeting in Sydney on the first weekend of September means an earlier-than-usual start for the 10th annual MSC New Zealand F5000 Tasman Cup Revival Series.

Though the final venues and dates of all seven rounds of this season's anniversary series have yet to be signed off the organising committee has confirmed those of the first three rounds this year as well as the fourth, fifth and sixth early in the New Year.

The appearance at the popular Muscle Car Masters meeting will be one of two for the MSC series across the Tasman this season, with a return to the recently refurbished and re-named Sydney Motorsport Park (nee Eastern Creek) circuit in late November for the 2012 Australian Tasman Revival historic motor racing meeting.

In-between is the first New Zealand round at the annual Wigram Revival meeting at Christchurch's Powerbuilt Tools Raceway at Ruapuna Park on October 27 & 28 and after the Tasman Revival meeting in Sydney over the November 24/25 weekend come the back-to-back fourth and fifth MSC series rounds at the two NZ Festival of Motor Racing - celebrating Denny Hulme meetings at Hampton Downs over consecutive weekends in late January 2013.

Defending MSC series champion Steve Ross (McRae GM1) heads a 14-strong Kiwi assault on the Muscle Car Masters meetings with support from a key group of local racers including three-time former series champion Ken Smith (Lola T430), 2011/12 season series runner-up Aaron Burson (McRae GM1) and fellow Aucklanders Roger Williams (Lola T332) and Clark Proctor (March 73A).

Expected to take the battle to the Kiwis, meanwhile, are top Australian category exponents Andrew Robson and James Davison (both Lola T332), and Bryan Sala (Matich A50).

As in previous years, at the high summer rounds of the MSC series in New Zealand the local fields will be supplemented by entries from category aficionados from the UK, the US, Canada and Australia.

The New Zealand F5000 Association now has 88 owner/drivers with race-ready cars on its books, the majority - 49 - Kiwis, but with its own domestic series finally up and running Australia can now boast 18 to supplement the 10 from the UK, one (current Lady Wigram trophy holder Jay Esterer) from Canada and balance from the United States of America.

This season at least 19 of the Kiwi regulars are committed to contest all rounds of the series with another four doing at least two or three of the other rounds here.

Nine Australian drivers have also indicated that they will be doing rounds of the series on both sides of the Tasman this season.

UK regulars Mark Dwyer (Lola T400) Greg Thornton (Chevron B24), Michael Whatley (Surtees TS8), Frank, Judy and Michael Lyons (Gurney Eagle, Lola T332 & Lola T400) and Peter Dunn (March 73A) have also confirmed their intention to return, as have Americans Bruce Lesson (McLaren M10B), Harin de Silva (Surtees TS8) and Eric Haga (Lola T190), and Canadian Jay Esterer (McRae GM1).

Expected to debut new cars this season, meanwhile, are series regular Poul* Christie and fellow Aucklander Frank Karl. Both are currently putting the finishing touches to freshly restored McLaren M10 models.

The MSC F5000 Tasman Cup Revival Series is organised and run with the support of sponsors MSC, NZ Express Transport, Bonney's Specialized Bulk Transport, Mobil Lubricants, Pacifica, Smith & Davies, Avon Tyres and Exide

A very big ouch. Tyre walls sometimes do more damage to the car than concrete as concrete walls allow you to bounce off whereas tyres grip.
Though in this case the tyres were probably the better option,,, especially for the driver.

And now the 'SWB' part is more appropriate...

That's definitely taken some wheelbase out of the right hand side. One of the things that is a serious risk in Historic Racing.

Thanks Wirra; I know that I'm playing to a limited audience here, but if only one person shares my taste in "motoring snaps" (as a gallery owner once called them- he missed a trick, the one down the road moved his Lowrys to hang six of my "snaps"!) then I'm satisfied. I suppose, if I were a member of a photography forum, I could stick them on there but those folks mostly would not be interested in the cars.

This was a week ago at the Le Mans Classic.

Despite the fact that this is all a bit of theatre for J. Public (they stop and buckle-up just around the corner) some of these folks, having done a decent practice-time for grid position; manage to have quite respectable accidents getting off the line. :rolleyes:

There is a lot more to the Le Mans Classic than old blokes going round and round in old cars!  ;)

Part of my brief was to shoot the Village and it's "retro-attractions". :smoking:

E1,
One does one's best! ;) Back then it was acceptable to put out grainy B&W shots in the name of atmosphere/expediency and J. public opened their newspaper, saw those photos and accepted them as normal. Arty-farty photographers (and most of us jobbing snappers at grim Northern-hemisphere racing circuits) pushed the film to produce even more grain, in order to get an image which would print in those pre-Murdoch days.
My current mission is to try to capture that old atmosphere but without the grainy-grittyness; because J.Public has moved on and now expects HD everything, anything less will not register on their radar.
Of course my Nikon F is still loaded with Tri-X and, when I have the time, makes the odd appearance track-side but, damn, wasn't it hard work?

Edit: regarding the last shot: I was struck by the range of expressions on the faces, rather than whatever those cars are (real, worth billions; or kit-cars loved by their owners... it does not matter).

Totally understand and agree with everything you said. Yes, per "pre-Murdoch," there's something about that old "enough grain to feed the cattle" look. I'm sure at some near point, some of us in the slightly older set will ask, "Can you add some grain to that, it's just too dang clean!" :lol:

I love the expressions on the last one... and especially the shooter at far left. Takes me right back to 1966... (IIC) Glad you're still enjoying film at times, we'll be doing some 4x5 within weeks and I can't wait (despite the pains both physical and financial).

There's just something about what you're doing that is "historic" on both capture ( ;) ) composition and post-processing nostalgic levels, I love it. Your use of clouds is also striking as can be!

For all the "bad Brit weather" we Yanks hear about, I'd take it! Shooting anything here in the US West anymore is becoming rather Saharan... :down:

A couple of us were talking about dragging out our oldest film cameras to shoot a day at the historics. Nothing has come of it yet. I'm still waiting for the old man to come good with the Yashica 635 he's promised me. It has both 2.25 x 2.25 and 35mm backs. Lovely old thing it is.

I actually have a working (as far as I can tell) Box Brownie. And four or so folding 'pocket' cameras. And about six 25mm Pentaxes (the indestructible ones) and several other odd-ball 35mm range-finder jobs. Every now and then I provide props for local stage productions.

But yes, I rather look forward to shooting with film again - just for the discipline - only having a roll or two of film makes you very careful, as I remember. Now, it's nothing to shoot 1,000 images in a day.

Further details from Castle Combe on the 6th October Autumn Classic.

“CASTLE COMBE LAUNCHES MAJOR NEW CLASSIC EVENT

The Castle Combe circuit's first meeting exclusively dedicated to vintage, classic and historic
racing is gearing up to become an important fixture on the racing calendar.

The Carole Nash Insurance Autumn Classic on Saturday October 6 is already attracting interest
from local enthusiasts with 'secret' stables of machinery hitherto unseen in the West Country and
from the invited clubs, keen to associate themselves with the 62 year old venue.

Of those, the Vintage Sports Car Club is eagerly awaiting its long overdue return to Castle
Combe, where it will run a race for 'Pre War Sports Cars'. Amongst the promised entries is the
wonderful 1934 Talbot 105 Alpine Tourer owned by Stephen Curtis from Westbury.

Stephen has owned the car since 1976 and has competed extensively in it in the UK and on the
continent, always driving the car to and from meetings on the road. The car's 6 cylinder, 3.4 litre
engine produces 140 bhp, which will power it to 110 mph.

Many of the anticipated entries are for cars with important provenance, such as the 1931 MG Ctype
Midget which was raced at the legendary French circuit of Monthlery in period and is owned
by Barry Foster of Glastonbury. Barry has raced the 747cc supercharged car at venues ranging
from Monaco to South Africa.

Races for fifties sports cars, historic Aston Martins, 'Big Healeys', Pre 1960's Jaguars and a
variety of V8 machinery are encouraging many other West Country enthusiasts to reveal some of
the treasures locked away in their garages.

Neil Fender, the owner of three ex-works Triumph TRs, based in Bath said, "It has been very
encouraging to hear the ethos behind the Autumn Classic. As a racer and low key classic car
dealer I feel so excited to have such an event on our doorstep and we will be supporting it in
every way to help make it a success."

A very eagerly awaited race is that for Austin Healey 100s and 3000s, organised by Healey Driver
International, whose competitions secretary, Joe Cox, is based in Bristol. He said, "Castle Combe
is the spiritual home of big Healeys, because of the efforts of such as John Chatham in the '60's.
The Combe race will feature drivers from Holland, Switzerland, Sweden and Germany as well as
the best known UK drivers.

They will compete for 'The John Gott Memorial Trophy', kindly sponsored by Bristol Forklifts Ltd,
whose boss, Julian Bronson, may also join in, still smiling from his fourth win at the Monaco
Classic."

Mark Campbell from Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, the race Director for the Fifties Sports Car
Racing Club, said," Several of our drivers, including myself, live in the Cotswolds, so this event is
the best possible news for us." Campbell will be racing his ex works Aston Martin DB2, an original
un-restored car, which competed at Le Mans.”
