Knockhill BTCC

Hi Folks

Here's a selection from the Knockhill round of the BTCC. It's very much my favorite circuit on the calendar, despite it's many faults (camping on a hill for instance) it has such character and the racing is spectacular at times.

Thanks to Mike (Petrochemist) for sneaking me onto the grid for race 1. Certainly helped me grab some different shots that us amateurs can't normally get.

Thanks for looking, feedback appreciated (I'm very into slow panning at the moment so would love to know what you think)

I think you're meant to keep the focus on the driver but I kinda like this

Pressure is on, the line is off..

New Boy to the series but Knockhill regular Rory Butcher concentrating hard on Race 1 Start

Another local favorite Aiden Moffat

The PMR cars really didn't favor using all four wheels

Serious work!

Reaching for the line

Going, going....

This young lady answered a call from the team on Saturday for a stand in Grid Girl!

This has gone down well in social media land, I'm just not sure if there's enough of the car sharp?

Images are all linked from Facebook but I think the quality is as good as uploading to here directly

I'm also trying to do some decent panning shots, and would be happy with any of the above. I don't practice as much as I should, but will be at Oulton Park for the next three days to see if I can get anything usable.
