Shane Van Gisbergen riding the kerb during this morning's practice for race 16 of the V8 Supercars championship at Hidden Valley, Darwin.

nice one...I don't think any race series has more aggressive drivers on the kerbs that V8Supercars...those guys are nutz...

Thanks TR, they sure are. It's a real art for them bouncing over the kerbs just right for maximum speed with minimum damage. Especially when there's a series of kerbed chicanes.

That would never be allowed here. I've been lucky enough to cover the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix for the last 3 years. "No flash" is so understood it's not even listed in the rules. I'm not even aloud to pop a flash at a high school basketball game, let alone popping one in the face of a speeding driver. Funny thing about those credentials, it's a lot easier to have them taken off of you than it is to get them. I am not even aloud to wear certain colors. I can't be wearing a shirt that is the same color of any flag they might use during the race. We are not allowed to wear those fluorescent vest, but the rules at this race may state you should wear it.

If even 1 driver complained to an official, credentials are pulled. There is no warning. Knowing what is expected of you as a professional IS the warning. You said this happened at another race, so this is not the first time this has happened? I can't believe he continues to get credentials. On top of that, he has what we here call a "hot pass" which means he gets to be that close instead of behind that fence. Media without a hot pass are so far away many are using 300mm & 400mm lenses.

I know things are different, sometimes very different in other parts of the world. Many times I think we are too strict with rules here in the US.

Finally, why would you want that image? It's quite obvious to me when a flash is fired & that's not a look I want for sports.

Ok. Sorry, now back to photos...……………...


I have had accreditation to shoot at World Rally Championship & European Rally Championship events..
No restrictions for flash use on these events..
I can understand use of flash not being allowed on track events but not on rallies..

My son, James has been giving it a go with my 90D. Second or third attempt at the weekend, not many keepers, though a few good ones.

A couple below.

The 919 Hybrid Tribute car is the one that shattered the lap record at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in June 2018. It made an awe-inspiring appearance at Laguna Seca at the Rennsport Reunion Sept 26-29, 2018. Porsche factory driver Earl Bamber very nearly broke the all-time track record at Laguna Seca even though he wasn't really trying. He was clocked at 186 mph on the front straight - which is uphill, BTW!

From the Porsche website (https://newsroom.porsc​he.com …timo-bernhard-15752.html) (external link):

Unchained for the record
The technical regulations from the FIA for the WEC and Le Mans, introduced in 2014, successfully delivered close competition between the conceptually very different class 1 Le Mans hybrid prototypes entered by Audi, Porsche and Toyota.

To prepare the 919 Evo record car, the base was the 2017 world championship car. On top came developments that were prepared for the 2018 WEC but never raced after the withdrawal at the end of 2017. Additionally, several aerodynamic modifications were made.

For the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo the entire hardware of the power train remained untouched. The 919 is powered by a compact two-litre turbo charged V4-cylinder engine and two energy recovery systems – brake energy from the front axle combined with exhaust energy. The combustion engine drives the rear axle while the electro motor boosts the front axle to accelerate the car with four-wheel drive. At the same time it recuperates energy from the exhaust system that otherwise would pass unused in to the atmosphere. The electrical energy that comes from the front brakes and the exhaust system is temporarily stored in a liquid-cooled lithium ion battery.

The WEC efficiency regulations limited the energy from fuel per lap by using a fuel flow meter. The V4 combustion engine’s output back then was around 500 hp. Freed from these restrictions, equipped with an updated software but running the regular race fuel (E20, containing 20 per cent bio ethanol), the Evo version delivers 720 hp.

Because the amount of energy from the two recovery systems that could be used was limited as well in terms of electric megajoule per lap, the systems stayed far below their potential. With now full boost being available, the e-machine output increased by ten per cent from 400 to 440 hp.

The engineers also unchained the aerodynamics of the 919 Evo from the regulations. The new larger front diffuser now balances the new and very large rear wing, both of which have actively controlled drag reduction systems (DRS). The hydraulically operated systems trim the trailing edge of the front diffuser and opens up the slot between the rear wing main plane and the flap respectively in order to reduce drag. Underneath the Evo the turning vanes and floor have been optimised. Fixed height side skirts increase the aerodynamic performance again as efficiently as possible. In total the aero modifications resulted in 53 per cent higher downforce and an increase in efficiency by 66 per cent (compared to the 2017 Spa WEC qualifying).

To help further expand the performance envelope, the Evo gained a four-wheel brake-by-wire system to provide additional dynamic yaw control. Furthermore, the power steering was adapted for the higher loads and stronger suspension wishbones (front and rear) were designed.

Compared to the car in conventional race trim, the dry weight was reduced by 39 kilograms to 849 kilograms. To achieve this, air-conditioning, windscreen wiper, several sensors, electronic devices from race control, lights systems and the pneumatic jack system were removed. Michelin developed special tyre compounds for the 919 Evo that produces more downforce than a Formula One car.
