WEC 6 Hours of Silverstone 2018
This year has become a year of firsts for me. Monaco Historic Grand Prix, Le Mans Classic & now the UK’s round of the World Endurance Championships. I was going to be shooting with Mike Fox from New Channel Media at the WEC 6 Hours of Silverstone 2018.
Race weekend is actually made up of 3 Championships. The European Formula 3, The ELMS & the WEC 6 Hours of Silverstone 2018. ELMS base themselves in the National Pits while the WEC are housed in the The Wing, The International Pits. The F3s are garaged in the National Pits but use the The Wing Pit Lane during the races. These logistics make it hard for a single photographer to cover properly. Hence the New Channel Media tag team!!!
We split our time between sharing ‘Live Pit Lane’ duties & trackside throughout the weekend. Quick change routine of fireproofs on/off & which of 3 different media bibs for the next shooting location made for a few laughs. The resulting collection of photos I hope capture the taste & feeling of really exciting race weekend.
