New Motor …
More coming soon …
It’s not very often I post exotics on here but the instant the Agera crested the rise at the Rudskogen track in Norway last weekend, I knew there was something beautiful in front of my eyes. Be sure to keep reading Speedhunters for the most recent stories from Gatebil and I’ll hopefully be able to catch up with things shortly on here from both this trip and the previous adventure to the Nürburgring.
Back from Hell
Apologies for the lack of updates recently folks, I’m still trying to get back on track after another amazing Nürburgring Nordschliefe experience. Lots of fresh stories over on Speedhunters and I’ll be sure to get some photographs up here before I head to Norway next weekend for Gatebil.
This Weekend, I’ve mostly …
… been spending time shooting the 2011 Team Need for Speed Schubert Motorsport BMW Z4 GT3s at the brand new Silverstone Wing complex. You can grab the desktop of the above image from Speedhunters. Whilst there, be sure to take a look at our coverage from the recent FIA GT1 & GT3 Championships from Silverstone.
During the down time between the ITCC sessions at Kirkistown yesterday, I spent some time scouting out photo-locations and trying different lenses and settings to get the best for the Irish touring cars. One of those sessions I used for some trial and error testing was the Formula Libre class which is an open class for single seaters. Photographing some of the cars, in particular the one above, only more strengthened my ambition to one day shoot an F1 race. The above was shot with a Canon 300 2.8 L IS with a Canon MKIII 2X extender on a Canon 1D MKII N.
The Green Hell
In anticipation of the impending ADAC 24HR Nurburgring at the end of June, I’ve been digging through last years photographs from the event and dug out these shots which previously have never been published (well, some of them anyway). The photographs were taken on the Sunday morning of what is surely the most challenging twenty four hour endurance race on the planet. A big thank you to KW Suspensions for arranging the trip and the helicopter!
Random Snap #12
It’s been quite a while since I just uploaded a random snap to the site. I’ve just made some small design changes which I think simplifies the site a little further. A big thanks to Derek at DT Solutions for his endless patience for when I muck up the changes. December will be a month of reflection on Speedhunters and I just happened across this image of the #1 Manthey Racing Porsche from the 2010 ADAC 24Hr Nürburgring at the Quiddbacher-Hohe / Flugplatz section of the Green Hell. It should be a great month on the site so be sure to keep checking in.

Nigel Colfer 180JZ Preview
Spent today shooting Nigel Colfer’s recently victorious 1JZ powered RPS13. I’m pretty happy with how it all went although we did spend over two hours searching for a location the results may just be worth it. Here’s a quick edit from the last shot of the day back at Nigel’s place. Now to finally start into the backlog of work that need’s to be cleared !
Random Snap #6
Just returning from the UK after shooting JDM Allstars for Speedhunters.com. Have loads of news and pictures to share, but for now Alan McCord shall have to entertain you in his LS1 powered S15 Silvia.
