    I was at Brands Hatch yesterday (Sunday) for the Dunlop Great & British Festival. On the lineup was EuroBOSS (basically mid 90's F1 cars :)), Mini's, Ginetta's, T-Cars and Radicals. An action-packed day, thoroughly enjoyable :) Also I would say it was the most "incident-filled" day I've ever been to, lots of scrapes, spins, off and even a rollover :p

    Here's a few compressed "forum friendly sized" photos...

    #1 First race of the day, first corner - oh dear!

    #2 Nicely prepared Radical :)

    #3 Ouch! 2 1/2 turns with twist - spectacular! Drivers were fine :)

    #4 Synchronised sideways action.

    #5 T-Car goes rallycrossing... bud didn't make it out :(

    #6 mmmm :thumbup:

    #7 ahhhh :thumbup: :thumbup:

    #8 Last race of the day and still action... this time at Clearways.

    Hope you like these "real" Formula One cars :thumbup: :thumbup:

    As ever C&C is most welcomed. Cheers :)

    Great shots! Excellent quality and looks like an eventful day to capture! I'm only just up the road from Brands, so maybe we should have a meet there one day!

    Very nice job of freezing the action. I like the shots with the sparks.
