Ahh, early summer in Kent aka The Garden of England. Birds sing in the trees, rabbits play happily in the fields, or at least they would if the poor buggers hadn't been drowned by a downpour that lasted pretty much all day...harrumph !

#1. Group C, the sports prototypes designed for the Le Mans 24 Hours etc. This one's an Intrepid. Did i say how wet it was ?

Was it raining Geoff? The JPS and the Jags leading the pack are the pick of the bunch for me.


Cheers

Just a light shower Ian...

Nice Geoff, also love the Group C pack shot. Glad I'm not the only one who thought it sounded a bit dodgy.

These are all absolutely spot on Geoff. The first 5 in particular are right on the money. I'll have to pick 3 favourites and go with #3, #4 and #5. Great stuff.

Cheers,

Simon.

Think i'll print that out & frame it, thanks Simon ;)

3 is through Doc Palmer's infamous fence at Druids. 4 is also through a fence which has a very nice (large) TV camera flap in it. 5 is fortunately a nice clear view :)

Love the Alfa's. I can't get over how small the old F1 cars are. It always amazes me when I see them at the Road America vintage races.

Really great stuff, I actually ended up loving the subjects and not concentrating on the excellent photography. Gotta love the shot of the Alfa's though...
