Headed to Brands Hatch yesterday in my newly acquired Skoda Diesel Estate Beast (not a replacement for the Pug, just a...companion) and he seemed to love it. The best thing about it is it's grey and an estate so you can hack around like a tosser in it all day long and no one bats an eyelid. Another thing about having a car you don't give a **** about is getting it dirty and doing handbrake turns in the mud.

Anyway, the weather was looking a bit shady all week and for once the forecasters got it right, when I arrived it had been raining heavily and it carried on raining all day after a brief respite while I endulged in what can only be described as a 'SausageFest'.

I don't mind shooting in the rain because it adds something to your shots that you don't get when it's dry. Genius, eh? What I don't enjoy too much is when it gets too heavy or starts coming in horizontal, luckily it only pissed down yesterday. Was very heavy for a part of the morning and just horrible for the rest of the day.

Nevermind, at least all my kit is clean now.

Here are some pics, kit is 20D, Sigma 70-200 EX and (at least my Sigma Of All Trades, the 120-300 EX. These have just been resized and some have had minor tweaks to colour and saturation. Some have had some sharpening and some have had none. There may be one or two that have had nothing done, but I couldn't tell you which. Because I don't know.

Here goes.

What better way to start a thread with the now de riguer pan - Lotus Cortina coming out of Druids slightly crossed up. Faster shutter would have been better but who cares? He's sideways.

The Big Boys were out: The Group C race gave us this Jaguar XJR16 leading a Mazda 757 into Druids, and that's a Spice rolling down the hill

That Alfa again, from another angle. It was pretty rapid as well!

What better way to end a thread with a pan, this is Rick Carlino in a Surtees TS9B

I'm off for a cup of herbal tea and a rub down with a used copy of Health & Efficiency - I'll do a thread with some of Today's photos later, and probably add a link for the galleries too.

Jagshamesh! I Like!

Great set Dave. The Lotus Cortina shot is a stonker!

Cheers,

Simon.

Ta. Got a couple of him at skew angles, that one was the most outrageous though!

Cracking stuff Dave. I've never really been out with my camera in rain like that. I think it really adds something extra to the pictures. :D

It's certainly an eye opener, and possibly a wallet opener if you're not careful. Having said that, the 20D does ok - I've done half a dozen days with water pissing off everything and it seems to be all A1!
