Brilliant images Rob @Robstar1963. Don't know how you've done it bearing in mind all the catch fencing. Well done 🏆 🏆 🏆
Many Thanks Ken.
Your comments are very much appreciated
I treated this years event as more of a challenge than a frustration at the limitations imposed by the fencing etc - I was pleased with some of the results - however there was a huge failure rate especially on the first day (Friday) when I was ready to give up when I reviewed the results from the day
Pleased I persevered though on Saturday as the shots of Rossi wheeling on his last appearance at a British MotoGP really made my day and made the effort worthwhile
Capturing a good set of Valentino on one wheel was on my bucket list
👍👍👍

First time shooting drag racing with Olympus for around 4 and a bit years. I only have a £40 40-150R
Great to see some drag racing from Santa Pod - I used to watch a lot of drag racing in the 70's but haven't been recently. Very nice set of images with some great panning plus making the most of what you'd got with you. :thumbsup:

Thanks Ken. I’m fearing the usual change of direction ie buy small, light lenses so that you can carry everything in a small bag and then ending up buying quicker sharper and much more expensive lenses.

The 40-150R certainly fills the small cheap and light bit but it’s a little slow to achieve and keep focus for drag racing.

Let’s hope the rumoured upcoming 40-150(ish) f/4 PRO isn’t too big and heavy.

That’d do for me. I don’t need the 2.8pro ( used to have it years back and it was great btw )
