Old School Racing

By Nigeyboy    
Me and my 8yr old son went to Donnington on Sunday for the Historic Cars Festival. Was a great day, with hundreds of cars to look at, and 7 races on the track.

This shot is from my favourite race of the day - the old 1930's 'F1' cars. Not sure what this one is (hopefully someone can leave a comment if they know!), but it was battling for first place with what I think was an old Auto Union! And the noise . . . . . amazing!! This was proper racing of the day - no seat belts, and only a huge steering wheel to hang on too!

This was my first time using my Sigma 100-300mm f4 for moving targets, and a lot came out blured, however I did get some really sharp ones which I was chuffed about! This image is slightly cropped, as I caught a tanoy speaker just below the car lol!!

Great shot, Nigel. Congrats on the win. I think it's a 1936 Maserati 6CM with Josef-Otta Rettenmaier in the hot seat.
