    DTM.... WOW :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    For those of you who don't know they are basically Touring Cars, 500bhp, very fast and very spectacular! This was only testing but I was pretty amazed, 100 times better than our own British Touring Cars IMO. Was again very cold (always is!!!) but there was plenty of on track action. Well worth it :)

    Here's a couple of "forum friendly sized" photos...

    #1 One of my first shots of the day. Think I stood here for about an hour just watching them go by. Quality :)

    #2 Tom Kristensen sparking out of Paddock Hill. This guys a legend!

    #3 Approaching Druids...

    #4 Couldn't resist going back to Paddock Hill Bend...

    #5 Ouch! Pierre Kaffer crashes right infront of me... quite a heavy hit, couldn't get any shots of the impact though, not a good angle plus rusty fence in the way :lol: Here's moments later though... He was ok btw :)

    #6 Susie Stoddart holding up a flaming Tom Kristensen approaching Clearways...

    Comments are most welcomed, I try to improve everytime I shoot so just say what you think, good or bad. Last time I had issues with shots being a little too dark on certain monitors, I've tried hard to address that. Let me know what you think.

    Cheers

    What a great series!
    These are so fast, it's gotta be tough shooting. Just curious what you think your 'keeper' to 'trash' ratio is?

    Superb!!!

    I live quite close to Oulton Park, but usually if the big teams are testing, they don't allow spectators.

    Several track days though, usually with interesting machinery.
