Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Knockhill

Aaah I love Porsche sportscars! So what an opportunity I had to shoot some of them during their races at the BTCC event at Knockhill. In comparison to the BTCC cars the Porsches were really quiet but still with a very nice engine sound.

The weather was mostly dry for the races but on Saturday we had some rain and a wet and intermediate session during which the drivers still went for it. Quite spectacular if you were at the right places. Cars spun off track (Steve Parish) and had to call it a day unfortunately as he came off track in Butchers and slid up the hill past the John R Weir chicane. All attempts to free him failed.

Meanwhile the other drives got into the grove and produced some spectacular wet racing/qualifying. Was another lovely shoot and with a burger and coffee it was quite alright. More photos as usual on my website
