Circuit of Ireland SS10 & SS14
With Autograss racing cancelled due to the weather I got a chance to take in a few stages of the Circuit of Ireland. It’s a lot of years since I’ve taken in any of the Circuit and I had expected it would now have got to the stage that H&S would have made you stand that far back from the stages that you’d need the wind to blow in the right direction to even be able to hear them. Thankfully that proved to be a misconception and refreshingly I was able to take photos quite close to the action without needing to be dressed up in enough hi-viz that I could be mistaken for someone going to a 90’s rave.

Different conditions and an old lens that has sticking aperture blades meant an afternoon of tinkering with camera settings which meant a lot of trial and error. It was more about the things I enjoy from photography and less about going through the motions that Oval racing has become for me. It was the first time I’d photo’d a Rally out on the Roads which was enjoyable and refreshing in itself but the highlight I think was seeing a Lancia Stratos out in competition, I don’t recall ever seeing one in the flesh in proper competition before, they are an awesome machine.
