Brooklands has hosted the Auto Italia magazine sponsored car show for a number of years now, their can be very few displays where you can see a dozen Lamborghinis with a 1993 Fiat Tipo among these brutal and exotic super cars. An early arrival ensures some good arrival photos of the mix of Italian cars as they start to line up and fill up the Brooklands site.

Auto Italia magazine does a great job of organising this enemy every year and always had some stunning cars on display, during the course of the day thousands of peel turned up to see the cars on display and also enjoy the Spring sunshine. At midday a selection of cars then makes its way to Mercedes World next door for some parade laps around the test circuit, it was great to see the La Ferrari rubbing shoulders it's the new 488 and the F40. Also Oakley design had a Bugatti Veyron on display, pushing out 1145 BHP it graced the circuit with its bright yellow and carbon fibre livery.

For me the photography brief from Brooklands is always to capture the event from a visitors viewpoint, and throughout the day I was using the 14-24mm lens for some wider images alongside the 300mm F4 prime telephoto, I still can't believe how light this lens is and also how fats and sharp it is across the aperture range.
