MORGAN TRACK DAY PHOTOGRAPHY AT GOODWOOD

I have covered the Morgan track day photography at Goodwood for seven years now, the day is always very relaxed and has a mix of novice drivers and seasoned track day drivers. The drive down from Kent is always enjoyable, as once you are off the motorways the roads that lead to Goodwood are open and full of stunning scenery. Morgans come in all shapes and sizes as the recent addition of the three wheeler makes it an eclectic mix in the pits and on track, I always cover a story of the day so it really is a creative day of car photography plus candids of the drivers and their friends who have come along to enjoy the experience.

Two cameras and two lenses, the 300mm F4, and the ever flexible 17-40mm mm F2.8, this was mainly used for the tracking photos during the group lap of the circuit, the two key cars for this photo were the new Aero 8 and a similar coloured three wheeler, slow shutter speeds make the cars look like they are carrying more speed then they really are, remember I am lying down in the back of an estate car so a steady speed from the driver is vital (for smooth shots and my health!). The day was overcast but stayed dry and kept a consistency to the set of automotive photos on track and in the paddock area, it also added a dramatic sky for the situ shots and tracking photos on track at Goodwood.
