Brands Hatch Historic Festival 2017

I hadn’t been to Brands Hatch in years, so I was really looking forward to shooting at a new location for my Motorsport Photography. The Brands Hatch Historic Festival 2017 looked like it was going to be an exciting event to attend….& it didn’t disappoint!

The day dawned wet & when I say wet I mean WET!!!

The weather was forecast to improve…but when exactly? This left the Drivers & Pit Crews with a few tricky decisions to make. Go safe on Wets or gamble the track will dry out for Slicks!

Thankfully the rain clouds blew over, the sun broke through & in no time we were racing on a fabulously quick dry track.

This was a round of The Masters Historic F1 Championship & some awesome machinery from yesteryear was out in force.

There was some great racing from these drivers before they gave way to other equally impressive cars.
