Bit late with these but as it was the last race of the season I'm working my way through them slowly. My first trip to Donington for many years despite it being my closest track. Most of the comments I've read about Donington in the past have been negative but I was pleasantly suprised by what I found.

As always C&C welcomed.

1. The sky was a bit flat for this angle on Saturday morning but I think it works ok in black and white?

3. Not quite sure about the composition but this is the closest I've got to a decent start shot yet. Thanks to Jonny for not standing 6 inches to his right, there were plenty of people around me cursing as the accredited guys turned up in front of us (as is their right) just in time to block what they thought was going to be a great view.

4. I'm going to miss the V12 Vantage next year but I'm looking forward to the new V8 GT3.

5. The varying elevation at Donington allows for plenty of different angles.

6. This looks even more brutal from the back than it does from the front.

7. Really hope Nicki's back next year in the V8

Really great set, all nicely composed with spot on processing. #6 is the pick for me because of the amount of detail and the exhausts glowing red hot

Thanks. You‘ve got to do what you’ve got to do, I certainly don’t hold it against you . Good to finally meet you by the way

Thanks, still need to work on getting some wider shots I think. You had some good ones this time.

Great set mate. I still haven't processed mine, but one I have uploaded made it into Flickr Explore yesterday.
