Had a great day at Bathurst, even tho it was horrible with the rain on the way. As soon as the Mountain could be seen the rain eased to a stop, and the clouds started to open.

F1 was the 2008 McLaren used to win the 2008 British GP, and the V8 was Triple8s rides car.

Just for the unofficial record here are the times. The F1 times smash the "record" of Lowndes of a 2:06.8 from last years Bathurst 1000.

F1 - On Pirelli Mediums
Button: 1.47.9
Lowndes: 1.49.0
V8 - On Dunlop Sprints
Button: 2:17
Lowndes: 2:11

The track was rather greasy, due to heavy rain the night and morning of the event, and the lack of other cars rubbering the track up.

Shot with Canon 1D MK2 N with 100-400 & 28-105.

1. Button at Esses.


2. Button at Chase.

3. Button heading to Dipper.

4. Lowndes at Skyline.

5. Button heading into Esses.

6. Lowndes in Dipper.

7. Lowndes exiting Dipper.

8. Lowndes at Forrest Elbow.

Lewis Hamilton (F1) and Tony Stewart (Nascar) are supposed to do a similar Mobil 1 sponsored driver swap at Watkins Glen International in NY this summer. It's only a 30 minute drive from my house. I Will Be There!!!! And I can't wait to see how much the F1 car will smash the WGI track record by. I also can't wait to hear it screaming through the hills up there. It is supposed to be the current 2011 car too. I'll try to get some good pics of it too.

Feel free to use any photo's that I post for any purpose that I don't find offensive. I'd be honored to find my pics used on that world wide web thingy....

If I had known in advance this would be happening, I would have wagged work to be there.


Respect the moderators. They are the over-worked force that keep this place civil.
