    Was at Brands Hatch yesterday for the BTCC qualifying and support qualifying/races. As always there was a fair amount of action, only downside being that there was no Clio Cup race (didn't know until I got there) *sobs* Oh well, it didn't stop me! :greenpbl:

    Lighting was the usual mixbag. Sometimes very bright and sometimes very dark and sometimes both. Felt I handled it pretty well though for a change. I'm still very disappointed by the big fencing at Druids. It's just not possible to completely get through it. Annoys me as such a good photo opportunity is now gone :x .

    Anyway watched todays action on telly, seemed like a good race, particularly the 3rd one. I wonder how many people "snapped" the first lap accident at Paddock and the Matt Neal Tom Chilton "incident" up at Druids... we'll see... ;)

    I've not finished going through all my photos yet, I'm about 40% complete so all of these are from the morning...

    Compressed "forum friendly sized" photos...

    #1 Ian Pearson gets a bit crossed up wellying it out Druids...

    #5 Pippa Mann sparks through Paddock...

    #6 Chris Stockton takes a trip through the Paddock gravel trap in his Lexus IS200. Sadly he doesn't quite make it out and the session is stopped...

    Comments as ever are most welcome.

    Cheers

    Thanks bud.

    Yes I was pleased with #2, the lighting definately helps, as did "being in the right place at the right time" - something that never usually seems to happen :greenpbl:
