Go Black Beauty

Go Black Beauty

Yay! No more Vanuatu photos! (…for now…)

The New Zealand A1GP car at the brand new Taupo Motor Sport Track during qualifying yesterday. I have a three-day Grandstand pass right in front of the best part of the track (read: where they all spin out/crash/etc). With the 500 photos I took on practice day, the 450 I took yesterday and the ones I will be taking today during race proper you should brace yourself for a glut of racing photos.

This car has the nick-name ‘Black Beauty’. Driven (at the time of posting) by Jonny Reid who caused a surge in local interest when he won the previous round held at Sentul in Indonesia, thus coming to his “home” event as the favorite.

Crop and Sharpen. (one of the lucky 2% that were in focus)

I’ve been wondering if anyone ever clicked that thing, now I know – thanks!
