I was up in Northants last weekend shooting the Silverstone Classic for Classic Driver. I’d been looking forward to it for a long time, as I’ve only been to the circuit once before in 2005 when I was working as a driver for a car magazine. So it was another new and inspiring experience for me. After walking the whole of the 3.6 mile course, first on the inside of the track and then the outside - I can confirm it’s not the most photogenic track in the world (and that there is no shade), but then it does make for some exciting racing and the standard of machinery competing was so high it really didn’t matter. Also, the new pit complex (named ‘the wing’) adds some character and the clean, glossy floors in the garages offers up some great photographic opportunities.
