I've just got back from a weekend trip to the Spa Classic Meeting. Historic meetings aren't really my thing, but we went for the experience, and the Group Cs! (And the beer....)
I've never been to Spa before, and I have to say it certainly lives up to the hype. You know how people go on and on the TV about how you can't appreciate how hilly and steep it is without being there? Well, it's true. Eau Rouge is painful to walk down, and hard work to walk up. Out at Bruxelles you are 1500 feet above sea level, and you can sit and see La Source hairpin 1.3 miles away (!) and 100 feet below you. Eau Rouhe is 100 feet below that. Truly spectacular.
Here are a few shots from the weekend. I'm desperately trying to improve my racing photography, and move away from my usual side shots to something more creative, conveying a bit more dynamism and speed. Any critique / tips would be welcome.
Thanks for looking,
Formula 2, don't know what type.
Some details shots.
Porsche I think.
Climbing Eau Rouge.
UNDERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the front wing.
OVERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the back wing.
HORSEPOWER - is how fast you hit the wall.
TORQUE - is how far you can take the wall with you.
