That last shot is in Mondello Park is it not. 

How did i miss the Stuttgart stormer when it was in Ireland 

 

Oh and great read, i may have only been a whippersnapper in the 80's , it didnt stop me sitting down in front of the Telly on Sundays to watch the motorsport though

It's so weird seeing places you have been to or driven past a thousand times on Speedhunters. 

I have to show the picture of your equipment to my missus though, she gets a great kick out of every mans insistence on using extra battery grips on their cameras. She believes its down to men over compensating for something. I wouldn't have a clue what she's on about though :)

Absolutely love the banter between the lads , i can only imagine what it was like after a few pints that night.

Also great to have so many representatives of speedhunters in the one place, saw ye all in the Speedhunters tent on sunday but an absolute facemelter of a hangover meant i was way too emotional to approach any of ye lest i grab ye in a giant bearhug and thank you wholeheartedly for the hours of happiness i glean from this place.

Dont be strangers now !

I was there about two months ago for the first time, and even now when someone asks me what it was like , i just kinda exhale and say "where do you start" 

 

There is no short way to sum up the magical mystery of the ring , its just too immense for words. Still though they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so when anyone asks in future ill show them these photos , hopefully they will be able to convey the message better than i can.

Shot 5175 is just simply amazing ....

Its as if he parked there and waited for you to shoot and then carried on his merry way

An interesting aside to the history of Porsche 917 001 was after winning the 1973 Nurburgring event Kauhsen was visited by the West German Secret Service with a very strange request to take a mystery guest around the Nurburgring circuit in the now famous "Yellow Car". The following morning the 'Ring' was carpeted with a blanket of thick wet snow but when the mystery guest turned out to be none other than the President of the Federal Republic who was a great fan of Kauhsen and the Yellow Car, the lap of the 'Ring' had to proceed.So - in 6cms of snow, on slicks followed by a number of secret police in Mercedes saloons and the German army in trucks Kauhsen and the President of Western Germany, Gustav Heinemann, proceeded on a lap of the famous Nurburgring, at least one army truck overturned, several police cars left the track but Kauhsen and the President returned unscathed!!

I've been meaning to get along to one of these VW shows for a while now .

Its never been something i've been into , but i may go and open my eyes to another subset of the petrolhead psyche.

At least if i end up not enjoying it , i can have a good rip on people who have car-bras. 

Stance is one thing , but a car-bra .... nope
