Croft Nostalgia Festival Revisited

By LynneJoyce  
Another set in my 'Revisited' series, this one from the Croft Nostalgia festival in 2016. I have posted it to maintain my reputation for diversity.

This set demonstrates the dark art of capturing cars going round a race track at breakneck speed. They are from two races, one for saloon cars, the other for sports cars. Both were great fun to watch and I hope that I have presented plenty of action in these shots. The objective, I am told, is to get the vehicle and driver pin sharp but the wheels should be fuzzy. Panning with a heavy, long lens, and trying to isolate these guys is a toughie but l I did my best.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the event as a weekend full of interest and fun. I fully intend to go again this year. It would make a good location for an EPZ group trip, particularly for those of us who enjoy fancy dress. Both Garrath and I went dressed as 1940's motor mechanics, costumes that allowed us to get down and dirty to take photos of the vintage vehicles on display..

Croft Nostalgia Festival

Thank you for viewing. I hope that you enjoy at least some of these shots.
