Default Oulton Race Car test day 7th March 2017.

For the past few weeks I have been lucky enough to get over to Oulton Park on a Tuesday to watch some semi exclusive testing. It's free admission & a great way to spend a day if you're into racing. Yesterday was one of the best yet with Bentleys, Ferraris, Lambos & Ginnettas flying around the circuit. There is also access to the paddock to see what goes on behind the scenes.
I thought that I'd share some pictures of the event.

This has to be my shot of the day. More luck than judgement I feel.

Really great photos Colin. Did you take many video by any chance? I'd love to hear the sound-track!

I only have the one Mike. It was taken on my mobile, so the quality is a bit pants. This is Rob Austin in the BTCC Toyota followed by the Bentley which sounds amazing in real life.
