Photo of the week
Here are some of the photographs from the Sunday race at the Telstra 500 V8 Supercars. There was plenty of on track action as the narrow street circuit and unforgiving concrete walls took their toll on the cars. A first corner incident cost some of the drivers a bit of paint even before two safety cars came out later in the race. I met up with Keith McInnes again to walk the track and take in the action.
Keith and I found some good vantage points around the track but it was next to impossible to shoot around the fences. He actually had a bit more luck on Friday and Saturday when there were fewer people and more opportunity to find unobstructed angles. I tried to minimise the appearance of the fences where possible in my photographs. I must admit though that I’m looking forward to a race at Sydney Motor Sport Park with its unobstructed views.
