With Rob Collard in the hunt for the championship I couldn’t not go to the final round of the BTCC this year. It meant an early start getting there before 7am but even by that time the que for South Bank was already out onto the main road and people were queuing at the gates.
The weather was a bit cold and with wind blowing clouds along pretty fast every time I got the camera set the light changed.
But at the same time at the right point with the right setting it gives an impressive backdrop like the header shot of Andrew Jordan in his last outing with Motorbase and Jack Goff who seemed to be running on his own most of the weekend.
Plato seemed to have quite a frustrating weekend not having the pace to make up places having caught the car ahead. Here he is trying to pass Rob Austin in race 2.
The track limits crack down of a few seasons ago seems to have been relaxed. For Jackson technically his wheels aren’t touching the ground so perhaps it doesn’t count as cutting the course?
The usual support races were there. Ginetta’s and Ginetta Juniors.
The Porsche Cup cars were also there and raced into the early evening sun just before the BTCC final race.
While there was not so much forceful driving as some years the cars were all tightly packed for the first few laps.
Not that earlier in the day was less busy.
Maybe next year Rob…
