Finally I was able to obtain a ticket for a motor race after almost 2 years due to Covid restrictions, The Ferrari Club Competizione at Croft. a limited number of tickets probably around a thousand , Made a Big mistake before setting off, I forgot to pack my monopod which basically ruined my keeper rate with the PL100-400 Last two shot with the Z6 and 70-300

Nice images. Glad to hear that you've been able to go a motor race again :thumbsup:.

I went to Croft a couple of weeks ago for a bike event and was reassured by their Covid measures so fingers crossed for the BTCC (even if limited crowd). I'm trying to place the first and fifth pictures and wondered if they have now opened spectator access to the whole track?

The first is a shot from Sunny in, the fifth is taken at the complex, I stand on a 300mm high portable step/seat looking over the catch fencing as the cars turn right towards the hairpin.

Currently at a Premier Inn near to Donington Park Circuit to spend the weekend at the World Superbikes Races
Made a point of buying a ticket early on in case of ongoing restrictions - luckily so as I’m one of only 4,000 permitted entry on Race Day
Sad that many more could not be permitted to buy tickets but looking forward to having plenty of space around the track to capture some photos
Hoping to get back to to speed a little more as I’m still trying to get past being ‘rusty’ after so little practice recently due to events being cancelled
Was due to camp for the weekend with a mate but he can’t make it after all so staying at a convenient hotel
Will be meeting up with a great couple of enthusiasts i met at BSB Brands Hatch in 2019 though so looking forward to tomorrow
Shame that the weather on race day is forecast to be quite wet

Anyone from here going ? @Kae1

From last week at Thundersports at Mallory Park Leicestershire
This weekend back up a little further in Derbyshire - certainly doing some miles :) (from the Isle of Wight)

Hi Rob
Glad to see you're already installed near to Donington for the three days. The more I visit Donington the more areas I'm finding to photograph so I think you should have a great three days :yahoo: ... dead jealous! I'm looking forward to some daily updates from you. Hope your back holds up🤞
Yes I'm going on Sunday with some (non photographer) friends so will let them decide where they want to watch the racing. As I understand it there will be easier access to the infield so expect we will be "somewhere" in the middle probably around Redgate or Craner's Curves plus a visit to the Esses. As you say with limited numbers it should be possible to move round the circuit rather than find a spot and then stay put for the day! I'll let you know once we get installed and look forward to hopefully being able to catch up :thumbsup:.
Ken

Nice.
Envy.
With our lockdown (just finished), while the Racing is able to be done (in this area), it is with minimal team and staffing levels.
No spectators, no media. Dang.

SOoo, here is some motorsport imagery from June.

This one like the others above briefly edited on iPad - could do with some work on Lightroom / PS but has potential

Like @Robstar1963 I went to Donington Park for the World Super Bikes but unfortunately we didn't get to catch up. Normally I like to move around the track but as I was with friends, who found a spot they were happy with, we stayed there for the day. This gave me a new challenge as the spot is where the bikes were doing probably 160+mph and even panning with a 300mm doesn't fill the frame. A few (heavily cropped) pictures from the first (wet but drying) WSB race of the day.
