Nice ones, Tom. I especially like the three wheeling Fiat. By the way, have you ever attended the F1 race at Silverstone?

What is the purpose of the vertical vane at the front of the cars?

I for one would enjoy seeing more of the shots. I have always enjoyed your work.

Hi Steve and thanks for your comment, the vane on these cars is for a timing beam. On the start line they line it up on one and at the end of the section it breaks another to get a very accurate time. I will post a few more over the weekend !!
