Your favourite motorsports events
« on: December 28, 2013, 12:08:38 PM »
Hi all, there is another thread which has lots of very knowledgeable people so I thought I’d start a new thread regarding motorsport in general, please feel free to add your photos, no matter what the event, from Karting to F1, all welcome.
I’ll start with a couple from last year’s Dubai 24 hour, which takes place again on the 10th and 11th of Jan next year.  The first is me and Jenson Button's dad (John), the next is the main man at the Dubai Autodrome (owner!). Hope you like them :D

Next on the hit list - 5DIII - 18-35 f1.8 DG HSM

Well, as a follow-up on the original thread where the greatest drivers were discussed, I have to say that my most sincere thoughts are going to Schumacher, who's in critical condition after a severe head injury while skying in the french alps.  He is in intensive care ina an artificial coma and hypothermia to prevent further brain damage. That is surely one poor way of coming in to 2014...
He may not be the best sportsman, but he surely is part of F1 history. Hope he recovers without sequels.

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

It was shocking news indeed; my thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.  He was my first ever recovery back in 2010, he spun in turn 6 at Yas Marina and Liuzzi crashed on top of him, I was the second JCB to arrive so I got the car underneath, which was him.  Liuzzi’s wheel was on his head, it looked quite horrific as I approached, but both drivers were absolutely fine.  I got a bit of rubber from his tyre later on, this is the only picture I have of the incident, you can see my Scotland flag in the window of the JCB.  Lets pray that he get's well soon.

In a slightly off-topic comment, many of these photos do not look like they were taken from the stand.  Is there a general process for getting access to more photogenic areas for these types of events?  These are excellent photos, and I'd love to try getting some of my own.

Next up is from the Ferrari Cliente event last year, there were about 4 old F1 cars there, someone told me that it cost the owners $10 million to buy one of them and a further $30 million to ship them to 8 events annually, one of the drivers was apparently too drunk to make it to one of the 3 days so his F1 Ferrari sat there costing him millions while he slept off his hangover!! :o
The second photograph is of one of the awesome FXX, these things MUST be heard to be believed!! 8)
