    man alive, I tried some panning shots at the weekend on a demo run during one of our breaks, alright I geant you it was an F1 car going at a bit of a lick but what a waste of time that was, only had my 12-40 pro lens, its bloody hard to get a good shot at any shutter speed I think I will stick to pit pictures

    I think I've reached my limit, just about got away with this at 1/8 I think.

    Not sure which one's you couldn't get access to as they're all from normal spectator positions.

    2,3,7 and 11 were all taken from the inside of Druids as they're exiting the corner.

    4 is from outside Knickerbrook looking up the Hill

    5 is the approach to Knickerbrook from the outside.

    6 is from Lodge Corner through the fence looking back down the straight towards Warwick Bridge and Druids

    8. Knickerbrook again, slightly further down.

    9 & 10 are the pit straight from the outside

    12 is on the inside of Druids on the approach to the corner

    13 is Knickerbrook again but from down he hill a bit, again on the outside.


    Hope that helps
    It does indeed
    Most of the normal spectator spots on the outside of the circuit are too far from where I have to work. I have managed the outside of the start finish straight when I knew in advance I wasn't testing one session. I guess the outside of Deer Leap might be achievable under similar circumstances.


    So 4,5,8 & 13 are definitely to far off for me, 1 & 6 are perhaps borderline, and the remainder I have managed t least for a short while.


    The inside of Deer leap is one of the spots I get to most often when at Oulton. I have managed the Inside of Druids too, a great spot for panning IMO. The one other spot I've managed in the last 10 years, is the inside of Denton's down to Cascades (which gives an inferior view of the chicane too) About 15-20 years ago I didn't have to deal with the support races so had MUCH more time for getting to interesting spots...

    Surely that first one had to be taken from the back of the grid, it's the only way I've managed anything similar.


    FWIW I think #10 is my favourite, but it's a close run thing.

    That's a shame. I didn't apply, as I mentioned to AMc I just went as a general spectator

    The image space thing is different to what I did though, you don’t get trackside unfortunately due to insurance. Well they didn’t at Thruxton and I’d be surprised if they did at other tracks tbh. I know Mike had to take out special insurance for me.

    Cheers Phil, appreciate it. Just a heads up, I’m off to Donington on Sunday for the World Superbikes, I know you asked me to let you know next time I’m down
