As someone who has spent the past four years as accredited media at the vast majority of the events I’ve photographed, it’s very easy to forget how spoiled for choice we are at circuits. The growing base of enthusiasts have it much harder. I got to spend the day in their shoes this weekend, at the opening round of the British GT Championship at Oulton Park. Having the restrictions was a huge challenge, but I think that it made for some fantastic images.

M-Sport Audi R8

Photographing the drivers and cars in the paddock was a huge challenge. With the teams often closing the fronts of their awnings, and this year shielding the back of their pit garages, I could often only get a fleeting glimpse of the paddock activity.

It’s the little things.

FF Corse Ferrari 458GT3

Out on track, the Armco made getting the full car in frame a challenge. Improvisation is a good skill to have in these situations.

There were, however, one or two spots where you could see the cars in their full glory.

MTECH Ferrari 458GT3

One of the great things about Oulton Park is the back end of the circuit, where the circuit runs through some quintessentially British woodland. It certainly made for some interesting compositions.

Especially with some of the springtime greenery. Though the temperature was more like mid-winter!

And then the fire of the Ginette helped warm us up a little more! Luckily, the driver got away in time from the blaze.
