Between the test days, the sprint and the auto test I'm surprised the club doesn't get a landscaping bill the following week!

Excellent photographs, thanks.
May I ask, what was Tom's camera and settings? Just out of interest.
Philip
He’d been using a Sony bridge camera up until this weekend. The results were pretty hit and miss regarding the focussing. So I lent him my Sony 350 DSLR and a Tamron 50-200mm zoom lens.
I showed him a few basics, such as panning, framing, rule of 3rds etc. And he took to it like a duck to water.

We set the autofocus up to centre spot, and metering to centre weighted. Other than that he left it on the auto setting for shutter speed and depth of field. It was a nice bright day so fast shutter and wider aperture would have been selected. (F4-5.6 is max on this lens) The chosen lens gives a narrower depth of field anyway and can sometimes flatten the perspective, but that was fine for these shots, though a couple of head on shots had the grille slightly out of focus and the windscreen in focus. He used one of the fence posts to steady it.

I hope that helps. :lol:

Great photos Tom and everyone.
Please email (max 10MB per email) or send on CD any photos that everyone has that are copyright free or permission can be given for use by the Club in Slice, etc.
It is always good to have Curborough and other photos 'in the bank' so please send what you can when you can.
Cheers, Terry

Hi Terry, I’ve got the write ups for 3 Sisters and Loton to send you. So I’ll send you Tom’s Curbs photos at the same time. Am I right in saying that the cut off for next Slice is Monday?

Cracking weekends motorsport. Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend.

Annoyingly I only have T1 (65.09s) as I forgot to start the camera for T2

I've been playing with my very old and out of date web site.
Uploaded are images of the Auto Test and the Sprint at Curborough this year.
Visit www.magpiemicros.co.uk and use the Events & Categories link to go to a menu which lists the Auto Test and Sprint separately.
The images are not very high resolution but good enough to look at or keep if you want to save the image.
