Thruxton 2016 – Renault Clio Cup

Photos from the Renault Clio Cup practice, qualifying and races held at Thruxton in May 2016.

I was quite honoured to be asked if the cover image on this gallery (Senna Proctor) could be used as the main image for May in the 2017 Simpson Race Products calendar! It’s that sort of thing that makes this hobby all worthwhile (apart from personal satisfaction).

Anyone who knows the Club Chicane or has tried to photograph cars there, will appreciate that it’s not exactly easy to get an angle on the cars as they corner at the top of Woodham Hill. My tip is to bring a builder’s hop-up (unless you are 7ft 6′), and try to find a gap between the advertising hoardings in front of the first grandstand. Panning is difficult as you’ll only have a car length or two of space in which to capture images. Worth it when it works though!
