I know there will be billions of photos going up, but as I was filming with the 5D instead of photographing, I decided to get some faces after the event instead. After a spectacular fiery win by Trela (literally), moods in the pits were happy and tired. So here’s something you never see much – the people!
Dan Joyce – a man who deserves a rest.
Mr Daniel Bridle from Motormavens – I have a better one but that’s got Linbergh colours, so it will wait till a colourful post.
Rod Chong, head honcho at Speedhunters was sporting a trilby and Ray Bans.
Dan Chapman wasn’t feeling in the zone today, but had a great time none the less. His PS13 will be for sale in a week!
Uncle Paz was judging and had to make some tough calls with fellow judges James Hudson and Andy Jaenen.
James Hudson is a ruthlessly sharp judge – spotting things others miss from a mile away.
Luke Fink moved back slightly as I took this – so my focus is crap here, but shows Luke was in great spirits and rocked it seriously hard in his PS13.
Ian Gratton was clearly enjoying himself too – getting some shots for Drifted.com.
Midway through the day, Paz was still contemplating things while Laura spent all day trying to snap that 4-wheels-off-the-ground shot. Phil Morrison was smoking.
Doug Harvey always with a smile, and his sweet 4 door R32!
Whilst Bolf (Driftworks Club organiser) and Jord from Drifted.com discussed the finer merits of photography.
Sorry, I forget your name every time!
Josh Allen was out filming with his 7D and his collection of old school lenses.
Julian Smith and Julian Smith. Or is it Walton? 😀 Hey Ben? Huh? Huh? (You needed to have been at the ceremony).
Fuzzy was the man of the match – keeping the track running smoothly all day – and at night for that matter!
Ross Ianson from Speedhunters / Doristars and Daniel Bridle were clearly upto no good.
Bon had put in a solid mission to get his S14 ready in the absence of engines for either the Driftworks S15 and R32….
… only to be told he couldn’t compete against Dwaine McKeever. It’s a shame as Bon absolutely owned his ‘demo’ round against the 14 year old, despite being nearly 500bhp down (yes, 500bhp), and in his daily driver. There will be a more drift focused posts later in the week!
So that’s that! Hope you like the snaps – they were all taken on my Canon 5D MK2 with a 100mm F2 lens. 🙂
