This was an event I was seriously looking forward to, as soon as I heard that the older generation touring cars would be racing I had to be there. Growing up my Dad would get free tickets through his work to certain TOCA Touring Car events back in the 90’s, which is one of the reasons why I love cars and motor racing so much. Naturally I wanted to relive those awesome experiences I had when I was only small and to also photograph these crazy machines going full throttle once again. I didn’t realise until now that they have made a full racing series using the older generation touring cars, you can find more information about it here on the official Super Touring Car Championship website.
As usual and being British I am obliged to talk about the weather, the forecast predicted rain most of the day, even a thunderstorm at one point. As usual though whenever I’ve headed towards Oulton Park it magically seems to be sunny and have it’s own micro climate of warm and sunny weather, which is lucky. It did pour it down at one point and I got soaked and had to take evasive action to protect my camera, however looking at the positive side I got a couple of interesting rain shots of the cars.
