I love it when a chance encounter leads to something more. After watching my Team 309’s Brand Hatch video, I was asked me to put together a season review video for the CSCC. It’s a collection of onboard footage and stuff filmed by the teams that tells the story of the 2014 season. Great fun putting it together for the club, which got a great reception at their end of year dinner. Thoroughly recommend anyone interested in motor racing to go to one of the 2015 meetings. The noise from the special saloons is incredible, and there’s some great racing throughout the series. It’s also great getting up close and personal with the teams and their cars in the paddock and the pits.
I’d wanted to visit the Festival of Speed for years and finally got around to it in the Summer. We’d had torrential rain for a few days, so we were lucky to have some glorious summer sun. Two lessons I took away: trying to set up a tripod is futile and standing too close to rally track can result in a massive rock hitting your head.
Despite living only 20 minutes away, I gad my first experience of Brands Hatch on Saturday. What a great way to spend the day! For the £14 entrance fee, you’re treated to a feature packed day of racing (the Classic Sports Car Cub were racing). Such a friendly bunch of people and you get so close to the action. Thoroughly recommended.
