Brands Hatch Britcar Testing

Postby b33fy » Fri Nov 08, 2019 4:53 pm

Popped along for a very short while this afternoon to catch the brand new Brabhan BT62 for its first ever race Tomorrow. weather wasn’t good though managed to snap a few shots of it perambulating. Awesome in the truest sense. Won’t bore you with loads of shots so straight to the money shot..

Sweet. Very nice.

What was the racing like? You go to Brands a lot, do you have some sort of season/discounted pass?

Cheers Mike. Only really watched the tintops with the snodhurst crew today, with close racing at the sharp end. A freebie yesterday other than the half days A/L.

Haven’t bothered with a season ticket for a few years, tend to go along on test days just prior to a big weekend, as it’s likely half the programme will be testing. Occasional club day £16 on the gate, so not a deal breaker. Might get a complimentary ticket on the odd occasion. Do the occasional grade A event, DTM etc, go for hospitality for that and usually negotiate a very good price with a third party suite owner.

Prefer the quieter times to practice the photography, otherwise you get loads of toggers competing for the same space, though you’re less likely to get a really interesting shot.

Test days usually free, though Brands Hatch have jumped on the money machine for a couple this year, and charged a few quid to get in.

More shots from the weekend here.

Trying out a new app for commercial/pro photographers.

I like the new app Mike, very professional layout etc.
As for the photos, all brilliant, love how you get photos in the centre of your you screen, very clear as well.
