Soggy murky dull old day at Brands Hatch today.

Fortunately the action wasn't dull.

Formula Renaults, Legends and Trucks. Was also some Renault Clios and Ginettas.

If some of these look a bit dark...it's because it was dark.

Couple of FRenaults at Druids

Think the tracking is out mate

Legend racer - either 1200 or 1250cc bike engined things. 1250cc engines are sealed, 1200s? You can tune those...as if they need it

The pack come up Hailwood Hill

Going defensive into Druids

5500kg, 1300bhp, road tyres, rain. Inevitable.

Off the Official Greenpeace Christmas Card List

These boys don't mind getting close...

...or using the grass!

The field forming up at Clearways, ready to go on their rolling start

Good close racing

Was nice to meet Andy and Mike (albiet briefly) as well as the now usual suspects Glenn and Steve.

Will post the link for the rest of the photos later.

Trucks in the rain, absolutely brilliant, really like the one coming up Hailwood Hill and the rolling start one.


Cheers

Nice :) I couldn't decide if i should go to Croft or make the trip to Brands...So i stayed in bed :lol:

I like the rolling start shot too, definitely shows how big these things are in comparison to the usual cars etc. Must be interesting having a sideways Truck coming in your direction !

Did they close any viewing areas off for additional safety?

They only moved the spectators back about 5m at Clearways

Strangely, the inside of Druids was closed for the first couple of races but they opened the gate for the first of the truck races. Odd.

who's a naughty boy then? :) the outsides of druids was off limits for photgraphers during the trucks. i dont think i would have had the balls the stand there anyway :)

the gate on the druids bridge was closed at the start of the day, but it wasnt actually locked. i was on the inside on my own (after crossing the track thinking the bridge was closed) when this guy comes up to me and tells me the he just opened the gate and couldnt beleive no one had realised it wasnt locked. 30 secs later there was a stampede of people come over the bridge

Nice shots Dave, especially #5 and the rolling start.

Not too much smoke about, did the rain keep it down ?

Good meeting you today Dave - but it wasn't really the weather for standing around and chatting in :(
Nice colorful shot of the Legend.

badgerbaiter - you must mean that the outside of Druids was off limits to anyone 'track side' - mine were taken from the public areas, there were loads of spectators et al.

Andy - yeah was nice to put a face to the name finally. definitely not the socialising weather though! the Legend shot was one that came straight from the camera believe it or not, it even made me smile when I saw it!
