Hi Jock.
About time the Mustang caught up, 50 years with beams and cart springs!  ::)  ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Great photos Tex,

Do you have any more of the Mustang seen in the background in the 1st picture??
It looks like a 2014, so the last of the live axl variants.
I'll be buying a 2015 in a few months, which is the first (in 50 years of production) with independent suspension.

I agree with you there Graham, here's a link to an identical copy of the one I'll be buying soon, the interior will be red vinyl so it's quite striking, I'll also add the Brembo BBK brakes with nice shiny red 4 pot callipers too  8)

I can’t wait Roo, I sold my 2009 45th anniversary GT because I started a new job in Abu Dhabi and I had to drive 260klm each day, so really looking forward to seeing the 50th anniversary sitting in my drive real soon, here’s an image of my 2009 GT……loved that car :-[

Nice car... bad parking habits though ;)

What a mess, my camera's sensor is full of massless particules that keep on trying to behave like waves!

Hi Jock.
I have to say I love the Mustangs, Ford (and North American), I was happy when Ford dropped front wheel drive from the Mustang and I think their recent styling is spot on and now they have full independent suspension it could be a real sports car, I say could because a half baked IRS is far worse than a beam and cart springs!
I'm sure you will really enjoy having a Mustang back in your stable! ;D

Cheers, Graham.

It was BTCC at Snetterton last weekend and I have finally gotten around to going through my shots. Comments and criticism welcome. More available to view on my Flickr :)

Not as good a track to shoot at as a spectator on race day compared to Brands Hatch in my opinion. Happy with some of my panning shots, although room for improvement in ever slower shutter speed I think, must take a monopod to get much slower than 1/80th though.

5. Gutted I couldn't get a better shot, but the chrome livery made it really difficult to photograph!

Thanks Click!  :)

First picture was one of the last I took in the day, 3rd picture one of the first of the day. I was happy with them too.
