My second day at the F3GT meeting held at Oulton Park. It was a very long day with a lot of walking all around th circuit. There are some shots from places and angles you have not seen before. I have not had time to process my grid shots, so I'll do that as part three of this event, probably tomorrow evening.

There were two VW Cup races, the first early in the morning. This shot taken at Druids:

Next up were the Ginettas, who like to entertain, to say the least, We lost a few on the way:

The Heritage Touring Cars, although few in mumber, made up for it in noise:

It is that Aston again, from a totally new angle:

The second F3 race and the winner of both - Bruno Senna, probably one of the best drivers I have seen in F3 for a long time:

Is there any relationship between Bruno Senna and the late great Ayrton Senna???

You rounded up yet another great bunch of shots KennyG.

I love that last shot

I think he is Ayrton's nephew. Lots of backing but a disappointing first season - he kept throwing it off the grey stuff. He seems to have got it together this season.

Great shots as ever Ken. I agree with Bosscat about that last shot - superb!!

I love the new angle on that works-coloured Aston, Ken. Do you know if the Historic Tourers are going to follow the F3-GT's around the different circuits ?

I'm planning on getting to the Donnington meeting and would love to see them.

Gary.

i noticed a lot of hype about senna suddenly started this weekend.. two races and he's suddenly the best driver in the world.. was pretty average last season, so not sure why everyone suddenly rates him so highly.. oh wait a minute could it possibly be his name? /sarcasm off

Were you at Oulton yesterday?
If you were perhaps you would see that he was the class of the field. In Race 1 there wer 3 safety car periods and after each on he romped away to increase his lead. Had ther SC not been deployeed he would have won by an enormous margin!!

no, i wasnt there
but 2 races doesnt seem to be enough to justify all the hype i've seen over the weekend.. also, i dont know what the competition was like? anyone else in the race of any quality?

Superb shots Ken. I particulalry like the shot going into Cascades and of course, that angle at Knickerbrook is a classic.

As far as Bruno goes, I remember seeing him when he first came to the UK to race and started off in Formula BMW a couple of years ago. He was very quick even then but lacked race-craft. If he has picked that up then he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Great set Ken, specially that shot of Senna leading the field.

The brother of a friend of mine races in the Ginetta Cup, Richard Austin (Car 21 IIRC) and guess who completely forgot to get any shots of him? :rolleyes:

I reckon Senna has been working hard off-season as he is a totally different animal to what he was in his earlier escapades. He is very approachable and seems to enjoy chatting to the public, unlike some drivers who seem to forget that without public support they won't have sponsors. He has a lot of competition this year and if he ends up champion it will be because he is the best. Names like Jarvis, Jelly, Conway, Duran and Jakes will keep him honest.

Geoff, just for you mate - he came 5th in this race:

The drivers of Ferrari number 1 were Tim Mullen and Chris Niarchos. I remember Tim from his long single seater career and the last 4 years in GT. I was once offered a trip around Silverstone with him in a 360 when I was doing a product shoot. I declined after seeing how close to the edge he drove. Still, it's how you win races. At least my stomach contents stayed in place.

Cheers Ken i totally missed the Ginettas yesterday :)
Having a 10 year old nephew in tow for the day was a distraction i didn't need. It's my own fault for making rash birthday promises :lol:

That Scuderia Ecosse Ferrari is a beast. They did an indoor pit-stop demo at Autosport international in January...Imagine 2 x 600Bhp Ferrari's in an enclosed space.
