Motorsport restarts here this weekend but no crowds and there will be only one photographer covering the event. He will be very busy... I'd love to see what his shooting plan will be to cover the action, gather images of 26 cars for use by drivers, teams, sponsors etc with a wide variety of locations/angles. It becomes even tougher as sponsors don't like shots with competing brands in the image. There are 7 sessions today with the longest break being 1 hour.

The difference shooting through the fence makes - previous images were shot over the fence from the back of the stand while this was through the fence

Good to be back shooting motorsport last month and I had 3 weekends in a row of it :D These were from the Phillip Island Classic historic racing event. Unfortunately the whole track wasn't open to shoot from, so my favourite corners (Siberia, Lukey Heights, MG) were out of bounds.

Final of 3 weekends of motorsport was the Supercars meeting at Sandown

These 2 guys had been locking up and having moments all weekend and I'd just said to a mate the lap before to stay on them because something is about to happen. Sure enough, Shahin locks up and spins Stack into the gravel.

I thought I was the one covering drifting here! Nice work Roo.

A nice series. It makes me almost want to spend the money for cable tv.
