Outside of Hawthorns for good views of them at full speed down the straight. Then all around the inside, Hawthords, Westfield, Sheene, Stirlings and the straights in between have plenty of oppurtunities.

I was at Brands for the A1 last year. I found the inside of Dingle Dell was quite good. The cars are close to you, plus you have a nice clean background.

Have fun!

No worries.

Inside of Surtees is good too - shoot here in the morning as the sun will be behind you.

From the inside of Druids as they go into the braking zone and round the hairpin you'll be shooting into the sun in the morning, so best to wait until the afternoon. However, as they accelerate down the hill coming out of Druids the reverse is true: sun behind you in the morning and in front of you in the afternoon.

Hope that helps!
