British Touring Car Championship


Olympus has announced a sponsorship agreement with the Power Maxed Racing team in this year's British Touring Car Championship, giving photographers the chance to capture the action and experience what it's like working as a pro sports photographer. 

A series of events will take place at all 10 British Touring Car Championship races throughout the UK in 2019 where Olympus will be inviting professionals to test the latest features of the OM-D E-M1X including a new intelligent subject detection feature which allows the AF system to automatically detect specific subjects (motorsports, airplanes, trains), focusing and tracking the optimal area, so that users can fully concentrate on the composition.

To find out more, and apply to attend one of the races, visit the Olympus Image Space website.
