Q goes to Goodwood part 4 Racing cars
1

Q + 06. It got very wet by the time these guys came out on track. You can get very close to the track which allows you to see just how hard the drivers were working to keep it on the island.

Brilliant shots Steve, a great selection of pics and I hope you equipped your Q and 06(?) lens with a wee plastic bag and rubber band   First accessory, I picked up for my babies

Cheers,

Great photos Steve, Thanks for sharing them. Looks like fun event even in nasty weather.

Did you have trouble keeping your camera dry?  When it's raining here I shelter under a big umbrella but that doesn't work if the wind is blowing a gale.

Regards, Geoff.

Thanks

I really needed at least three hands that day, trying to hold a big golf umbrella and steady the Q while panning fast cars. I tried to keep the Q as dry as possible and worried less when using my K7 on the other days.

Re: Steephill/ GeoffNS ..Thanks

Lads, for me it was just a smaller plastic bag and the same size rubber band and that goes for my GR IV  Mind you, it's easier with the lens adapter and hood

Cheers,

Jack
