    Formula One Testing took place today at a freezing cold Silverstone (my toes are still defrosting :confused: ). Midland and Super Aguri were present. Running was very very limited, only Midland took to the track while I was there.

    Not sure how many F1 / motorsport fans we have here... anyway here's a couple for you to look at, 800px wide.

    I have a few more in a gallery here - http://www.ae-photography.co.uk/280206.html if you want to look.

    I feel a little rusty having not shot motorsport for several months, hopefully I'll improve later in the year when the racing starts. Conditions today didn't really help (a car only came past about 12 times in total during the whole time I was there :() Oh well :lmao:

    Comments are of course welcomed ;)

    Thanks

    Sweet shots! The angle in the second is cool. You've really got panning down, great work.

    F1 Fan here. Dad made me watch it every time when I lived with him. Now I don't have cable, so I can't watch. Would if I could though.

    Sweet pics.

    Nice pictures! I had the honor of getting his business card and an autograph from Mr Aguri after my mother met him at the airport (my mom worked for JAL). That's when he first started up his team, looks like he has gone very far since then!

    Thanks very much guys. Sadly the day wasn't much fun, but I'm looking forward to the season proper starting soon :)

    I'll definately post a few here for you to comment (good or bad) on, seems there are a few members who are into motorsport/cars here :)

    TBaraki, thanks. I assume you mean for spectating as apposed to photography? Racing is good at Silverstone yes but for photography you are a very long way from the action, big gravel traps and fences. Not easy. Personally I much prefer Brands Hatch - shame there's no Formula One there though. But A1GP instead was good fun :)

    Cheers

    Very vibrant colors and the motion blur is perfect.
