Britcar 24hr



On Thursday it was 50/50 whether I would be on an IV in Hospital this weekend, on Saturday I was at the Britcar 24hr (I had a ticket, I couldn't waste it!), so drugged up to the eyeballs on painkillers and antibiotics, I managed about 6 hours there. Didn't get the camera out much as I couldn't hold it for long, but just watching was absolutely amazing, spectacular (right from the start), sat in the stand watching at 11pm was just the most surreal thing. Weather was perfect, shame I couldn't stay for the whole thing as planned, but I got to see the start, sunset and a few hours of night so I can't complain.

As I write this, the Clio 197 is still going, 1st in class in 15th overall, superb performance.

Awesome set Chris, brilliant pans as always and i love the dusk shots, that evening light really makes for cracking pictures. I think i'll definitely have to visit this next year, Silverstone at night looks really nice!

That was an awesome weekend, was there Thurs-Sun, all dressed up in orange :) Driver of the TVR that crashed seconds into the race has a broken neck and is in a coma at the moment, so thoughts go out to him and his family.

Yep I heard earlier, the commentary mentioned a few times that he was fine so this was the first I had heard, I feel awful for posting crash pics (I've removed them from my webspace, still showing here for some reason though so I've asked a mod to remove them)

  Turbos.
I'm sure its out of respect but shame i can't see see any pics or footage of the crash.

Wonder if he had a HANS device....

Hope he makes a full recovery.

Vids are on the usual internet-video-depository-site, quite a few have been taken down though.

Lots of pics around but I think most people removed them when they realised how serious it was (as did I). At the actual event they seemed to gloss over it quite a bit, hence not many people realising it was so serious until today.

Stunning pics Chris! Gotta love the light trails! :) Shame to hear about the driver of the TVR tho. Hope he makes a full recovery, although it doesn't sound good! :dapprove:
 
all the drivers had HANS fitted in our team, so imagine others did yeh. off what i could see they did.

very doubtful they'd run a sagaris without

I turned to the dark side in the absence of my Clio being ready for the event and helped out the TGM Honda Integra. 11th overall and beat all th M3s!
Nice pics by the way - any chance of anymore of the TGM car?
There's always next year for my Clio, determined to get it up and running after such a good weekend.
