It had been many, many years since I last attended a round of the UK Time Attack series, no better place to return than for the Oulton Park round in July on a fantastic summers day.
The last time I went to watch the time attack was back in 2010 with my friend Jo, who is one of the main reasons I’m into photography now. I only had a point and click Nikon camera at the time so it was super difficult to capture the action. I remember Jo was experimenting with a cheap 70-300mm lens but getting some nice panning shots for the first time. I’m not sure if those photos are still on Flickr actually, I should check and post them up.
A lot has changed in terms of the aerodynamics since 2010, the cars have mostly stayed the same, with Evo’s and Impreza’s doing well. Of course there were a couple of gorgeous FD3S’ looking super fast and sounding amazing, followed by a big lick of flame as they lift off (unfortunately I didn’t capture that).
There were some notable cars in the parking area too, such as a gorgeous R33 GTR with Rays TE37 in bronze and a lovely dish. A featured Civic EG6 from Banzai magazine, super clean build and very well executed, somewhat inspirational for my own EG6 build. Also a handful of other Japanese cars all super clean and tastefully modified which I like to see at a time attack event.
Enough talking now, enjoy my favourite photos from the event below and also check out the Flickr album for more action.
