Great shots George, the obvious one that makes the eyes bulge is number 10 (!), but apart from this one I particularly like the ones from around the pits area, number 4 catches the eye.

Thanks again for inviting us down on the Saturday and thanks for sharing these excellent shots.

Cheers

Brilliant set! Absolutely love 2,3 and 4, really good! I wish I'd have had a bit more of a walk round and got some different angles. Can anyone go to the pits? I didn't even go to the outside of the track just stayed in the middle bit. Next time maybe....
Pentax K5ii / Tammy 17-50 / Pentax-F 50 1.7 / Siggy 70-300 / Siggy 150-500 / and my favourite Pentax-A 70-210.

Guess where the focus is on 10?

At Donnington they have an autograph / pit lane walk at lunch time on the Sunday. 3, 7 & 11 were behind the pits which has access all day, can see the Porsches, Clios and Ginettas being worked on.

The pitlane walk is rammed though and I got lucky with No 4.

Some lovely images there, George - a great set. Wish my Siggy 100-300 was working that well at present. Something seems to have slipped within, so a trip to the vet beckons...

At last a set of motor sport shots that are more than just a series of boring shots of cars all taken from the same corner with a blurred background showing motion.

#1 deserves a special mention becuase it turns the cliche motion panning shot on it's head. Thumbs up for thinking outside the box.

There's a lot of diverse shots to be had at any sports event and for once someone has realised that.



#1, #3, #4 , #7 , #8 , #11, #14 are my favourites and of course #10 for the beauty and the cleavage


great stuff

Great shots

The lady in number 10 looks a little cold
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

I enjoyed both sets posted here.

Special mention to number 1 for being something different from the usual motorsport images
