Great article, these are my favorite articles on Speedhunters at the moment.


One thing I would like to see covered is Night Shooting, mainly how to shot at night at Le mans! Iv been for the last few years, and will be again this year. Iv walked easily 50-60 miles each year there, and found some fantastic spots, but just can't seem to get the setting balance right. Cars are too fast, with the massive contrast between the bright headlights and dark body, then you usually have a very small window on view to work with.


Any help?

I am a big fan of the R35, and have really liked the design every year. We use a R34 as our company car, and would love to some day own a 35, but, this look awful.


I can understand that yes it maybe quicker and produce more downforce, but it looks so chintzy, over designed and fiddly. The red line across the bottom of everything ruins the lines, and makes it stand odd. The back bumper is just nasty. Its like they have just walked around it and gone 'can that be red?' .. 'certainly, because red means faster!'. The styling of the GTR range has always been that of a world war 2 gun emplacement, that sort of 'get out of my way fast'. This just looks a little too Halfords.


Sorry Nissan.

 @PaddyMcGrath  @anowicki44 Couldn't agree more Paddy, if you dont want to know results, stay off motorsport websites.. not that tricky.

Do you think youve included enough pictures of Vettel and the GT86? One single picture of Grosjean, who in fact WON the event?!

The top picture isnt just a 'rolling road'. Its a moving surface scale wind tunnel. Likely meaning the image is of a maximum 50% scale model.

 

Looks incredible though, and would certainly love to see it racing!

Why is everyone moaning about the prices?! They are about bang on I think, you get what you pay for!

 

Speedhunters gives us all a great deal of pleasure, and an insight into motorsport from all over the world for free, so buying a some clothes and stickers to show my appreciation is the least I can do.

 

Not only are you helping Speedhunters to continue bringing us all some awesome shots, but you get some nice clothes too!

 

Pay the man!

Very nice detailed write up, love the GTR. Just wondering why you had a new map done before the new exhaust? Surely it will need re-doing after the new exhaust?
