Curious Roo/mickat. Do either of you guys get to do events as media for the supercars series. Or is the fan access enough in most cases? I've thought about taking a vacation to Australia and figured if and when I do go I'd like to probably attend a supercar race.
It's too hard to get accreditation for Supercars but if you choose the right events then a general admission ticket is good enough. Phillip Island is probably the best track for shooting - great backgrounds and clear shots due to lack of debris fencing around the track.

Hi Roo.
Very nice series, great panning, I really like the second shot (the blue open wheeler) it has a nice composition, nothing says racing quite like Armco barrier! :)

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks Click Graham ans Stephen.

Here's an accident sequence I got while I was panning at Southern Loop. The guy was going to wait for crash recovery but ended up getting back in the car and driving off - those little Suzukis are tough!

Thanks Click and Stephen!

You are right - it is turn 2 (Southern Loop) at the Island. I did have the chance to drive a few laps of the track at speed in a new Golf R and GTI a few weeks earlier - it is a very impressive place :)
