Every morning this weekend our day has started with a jaunt around the circuit here at Goodwood, along with 149 other Minis – quite a sight and sound! On Friday morning we had enough time while the grid of cars formed up for me to run up to the front to photograph the massed cars before we set off.
Each day I used a different lens to take my photos, giving a different perspective, from the back of the car on Friday and Saturday. Normally hand held cameras wouldn’t be allowed in cars on track but at the relatively low speed of these parade laps it was too good an opportunity to pass up.
On Sunday I had the opportunity to sit in the front of the car, which gave me a chance to catch some of the crowds as we set off. Everyone seemed to have caught ‘Mini fever’ as badly as us and we saw lots of smiling faces.
Once out on track I used a longer lens to catch some of the action ahead of us, bringing our Mini moment of glory to a happy end.
