Looks like that one is with the 1x , Rob? Very nice shot. IIRC, you were also playing with a D500 ? Have you settled on a use-case for each?

First Motorsports event of 2021 yesterday. Didn’t go too well unfortunately. Suffered with tiredness, poor mojo, low light due to showers and overcast weather most of the day and a very uncomfortable back
Took my Nikon Z6 along to try out with a Z 24-200 f4.0-6.3
A few shots from that combination:-

sadly, the images from the XT4 don't seem as good as the ones from the Z6.

edit- it could be the appearance due to the changing light conditions..

I'm disappointed that your experience at your first meeting this year wasn't as good as you'd hoped it would be Rob. I could tell from your earlier posts that you were looking forward to using your new outfits at the meetings you could get to. I suppose if the weather had been kinder (it is May not November after all) then you may have had a better day and felt slightly better.

Hopefully when you get a chance to review the output from your day in a bit more detail you might feel a bit happier. 🤞 I'm looking forward to reading your experience of the Z6 and the XT4.

As mentioned not a great day for various reasons but did get a few before I left early. Some more from the Nikon Z6 + Z 24-200 f4.0 -6.3 - a reasonably priced lens which was on offer recently
Quite sharp but slow when light levels fall

My first motorsport event this year was to Olivers Mount road racing at Scarborough to watch some bikes. The circuit hasn't changed much since the 1960's and is based on public roads which are closed for the weekend. Photographing there is different as you are so near to the track and the bikes are going so fast only a couple of yards from where you are standing. You can use anything from 14mm to 400mm, and panning is a challenge 🤞 .

Great shots there Ken - as previously mentioned hoping to get there for the Barry Sheene Classic in June - especially to watch my stepson Ryan #361 racing (in your 3rd picture above for others’ benefit as I know you know which one he is) Looking hopeful now - got the Friday and Monday off around the race days - just waiting for confirmation of Ryan’s entry - we are hoping to camp for the weekend 🤞

Now we're allowed to attend events again I am making the most of it and this week I had a visit to Cadwell Park to watch some bikes. Restrictions are still in place so some favourite areas are still out of bounds but some good weather and racing made up for that!
After last week's visit to Oliver's Mount, where you are almost on top of the action, it took quite a while to get used to being back at a circuit and a distance from the action. It felt as if the spectator areas had been moved back :blush: and I was definitely rusty.

Nice images of the bikes above - I love the look of that circuit. I mixture of, ummm, Brands Hatch (long) meets IoM?


Most (all?) of my action has been with 4 wheels over the last few months. A karting day last weekend, Forest Rally the weekend before.
Technically, 3 of these images were October and November from last year.

The blue WRX with Dave at the wheel is taken with a G85 and Samyang 7.5mm fisheye and very little cropping ;)

Some great and varied images there, Jonathan and some very creative editing :thumbsup: . I especially like the B&W night scenes of the rally and the night racing. Glad to see you are keeping busy!

Cadwell Park is regarded as a "mini" Nurburgring and whilst they are happy to run Superbikes round there, they restrict the car meetings to smaller club events as the circuit's not too wide. Under normal times there is an area through the woods very much like Brands GP loop except no catch fencing. The pictures I posted last week, and on the "Top 5 for May 2021", are from Oliver's Mount and are more IoM with minimal run off areas and safety protection strapped to the odd "hazard". Both are great for spectating.

Cheers. :)
The B&Ws I visualised before I even hit the service park as being in B&W purely because of the lack of light - that and that I didn't want to add a whole lot of colour noise to the images ;)

I am going to guess the creative editing is of the Escort and of the Toyota? Basically exposure with dodge...lots of dodge and a bit of burn. :)

Attended the last test day for British Superbikes and support this week before the season starts at the end of the month. Some superbikes have now grown winglets and a few hadn't yet got painted. I'd forgotten how fast the bikes go :doh: and am still rusty at panning with long lenses. Tried some through catch fencing too with mixed success. Just keeping fingers crossed that increases in Covid cases will not mean a return to no spectators.🤞
