Booked the day off work, paid £15 and ventured up to Silverstone for the F1 Young driver / tyre test. Those who know me know I'm not a fan of the circuit and it's photographic offering. However maybe the sun got to me a bit as I didn't actually think it was that bad :lol: Was also nice to shoot for fun, very relaxed stuff. Forget how challenging shooting though fences can be. Anyway here's a few shots:

#1 Up close

This is just a random few, in theory you should be able to view more here if you felt an urge to - http://www.facebook.co​m …43.137105366361​580&type=1 (external link)

As for the day well worth £15.00. In the old days it used to be free but still it's decent. Nice sunny weather too. They are playing again today so if you can get down there.

Appreciate C&C as ever. Thank you.

Happy Friday.

cheers

I actually booked a plane ticket and hotel and attended this test over the 3 days. It was incredibly hot. over 30 degrees on all 3 days and ironically, the last time I experienced such weather in the UK was at the 2006 British GP. :) Friday was packed too! I've seen less people at Grand Prix weekends!

Nice shots by the way! Can't really pick out a favourite!

Care to share where they were taken from? My only disappointment was that only 1/3rd of the track was opened for us. I'd love to know where you shot the Turvey / Frijns shots (for next time)?

Anyway... Love Silverstone. Just a shame I live 3,000km away. :(

Rather. For us pasty English peeps it was roasting. But took a couple of hours to chill out in the shaded grandstand. No probs :cool:

Cool. That's a good effort you have gone too. It's not often I see "Anyway... Love Silverstone" on a photography forum :lol:

Yes only small part of circuit open. The shots you mention were from slow corner coming onto Wellington Straight. It looks like I was possibly a bit lucky to get to that part of the circuit :confused::)

Haha it must have been the same clueless G4S guy that mistakenly let me in to the infield on Wednesday! :)

Unfortunately I had no idea of how lucky I was until another security guy came to apologise and ask me to go to the outfield.
