Hi folks,

In my case more like snap of the day:

    Image

Silverstone, UK. The morning started off pretty damp but the track had almost completely dried by lunchtime. Enormous fun had by all, yours truly included! 8)

Hi Max,

I'd better not stray too far off-topic as this is a photography forum (else I'd have to put my Moderator's hat on and give myself a stiff wigging! :lol: ) so suffice to say I had four sessions in the car, each one with an instructor holding my hand. It wasn't a race and just as well because I hadn't done anything remotely similar before. My best speed was a lowly 145mph (the instructor did a hot lap at the end and hit 155 but his cornering speeds were in a totally different league :shock: ). My overriding memories of the day were how violent some of the g-forces could be in what is essentially a road car and yet how utterly civilised the 12C can be when you aren't pushing. Engineering at its best and at its best engineering is art. 8)

Although I had my camera gear with me I didn't have much time for taking photographs other than a few similar to the one above. The pit wall was accessible so I could have spent time there as well but I was otherwise distracted. :wink: Obviously I can't speak for other venues but track days seem to be pretty common so if you are tempted then take the camera along. As an aside, there was a pro photographer there with a 5DII fitted with the 16-35mm and I used to own the same kit. I'd forgotten how massive it was and was able to fish my E-M5 and 7-14mm lens out of a couple of trouser pockets and compare them. For paid work the Canon would be far better than the Olympus but for what I want the m4/3rds system wins hands down.

Very nice, I could just about imagine. Have done the odd track day with the motorbike at Philip Island and done the odd lap around our local hillclimb, participated in a VW driver training day at Sandown . Yes the instructors can certainly can corner hard. The McLaren would take this to another level.

That sounds like an awesome day Bob. I'd be scared driving in an expensive car like that, but then I have a little less road experience...


A second snap from my visit to the ocean liner De Rotterdam.

Hi Bjorn,

To borrow a maxim from my previous existence, if the cockpit arrives safely there's generally no explaining to do! But yes, the McLaren makes even a Leica look cheap.

But my reason for chipping in here was to say how much I like your image above. The child, in particular, lends it a Bresson-esque air, if I might be so bold. 8)

Bob.
