Thanks for the encouraging words chaps


6 hours of racing, with constant dices throughout the field. Four classes in the field: LMP1, LMP2, GTS and GT = Four races in one.

Regards,

Hmmm, looks to me like you were at Abbey for a while, there. Just as I was. I've got several shots nearly the same...nearly. Most of mine are more blurry!

I was the tall good looking dude with Saturday Idol looks draping my socks on the railings and rejoicing in that Chevy engine.

What kind of camera gear do you use?

A Canon digital slr, a D60 with battery back, 70-200L IS lens with 1.4x EF extender when needed. Oh, and about 2gigs worth of compactflash cards.

I took nearly a 1000 shots over the course of Saturday, which would be frighteningly expensive in 35mm film terms....

I came back from Le Man in June with nine rolls of 35 mm. I then went to Goodwood Festival of speed and took four rolls.

I am saving up to go to Goodwood in September. Not the ticket cost, I have bought my entrance and grandstand seats, I am just saving up now for the developing costs!

Perhaps I should look at digital….

excellent photos - watched a repeat (1 hr digest) on the telly and it looked a great event with the Zytek showing a good pace with the ability to outrun the Audi R8Cs. The Ferrari 575s looked superb - is there any easy way to visually tell a 575 from a 550?

I should attend Silverstone more often (only 12 miles from me) but the F1 queues have always put me off going anywere near the course on race days. Do you know if there are anymore LM (or classic events) series planned for Silverstone this yr?

Hi Matt!

QUOTE The Ferrari 575s looked superb - is there any easy way to visually tell a 575 from a 550?

The front grille? (Narrow on the 575, wide on the 550) Apart from that not alot visually.....

QUOTE the F1 queues have always put me off going anywere near the course on race days

With the dualling of the A43 and the Dadford road, queues are barely worth the bother of considering these days
.

QUOTE Do you know if there are anymore LM (or classic events) series planned for Silverstone this yr?

Dunno 'bout classic, but international LM has been to the UK for this year LMES @ Silverstone, and FIA GT @ Donington.
