Default Open Wheelers (Motorsport)

Here are some more shots from the Phillip Island Classic this time some open wheelers. This is a real great meet every year as it falls on the week before the Formula 1 cars hit Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix.

Love the first shot where you can see the rubber being pulled off of the rim. Good shots as expected

Stunning shots I would have dearly loved to have been there for the race with the first shot. Actally what caught my eye in shot one was the car style. Looks like someone took a rally small body/engine and dropped it on a larger frame/suspension. I would love to hear the history on that one.

Very Cool. Was it a mixed race? In #4 it looks like that big car may come up and squash the little open wheel car.

these look great TG.

1 and 5 stood out for me, but they are all solid, as expected.
