It's all sorted! Got 'em. :thumbsup:

Apparently our tickets were among the last to be sent, because the grandstand's new or sommat.

We watched final practice from the pits straight, qualifying from Luffield and the race from Vale. Fantastic atmosphere both days!

Cheers! Had a great time.

Took those with a Canon EOS 40D with a massive lens belonging to my dad. Some were cropped a bit in Photoshop and I adjusted some of the contrast and so on. I rely on Photoshop to make my pictures look half decent!

Were you an official photographer? How did you avoid fences going in your pics? And what lens did you use? 70-300? Great shots.

yep, I'm coming to Silverstone for the third year in a row now.
I'll be sitting on the Arena B grandstand, so in the new part of the circuit, just in front of the hairpin. Should be fun. :)
