After making a major breakthrough with work over the weekend (which earned me a well deserved break), I decided to get out to see a bit of the action at the Circuit of Munster – run by Limerick Motor Club.
I’m fortunate enough to live close to some of the stages, so after a short lie in, I made my way to a tight hairpin on SS2.
The weather was generally good, but massive clouds were racing across the sky – which made shooting an absolute PITA. Fantastic Sun one minute, relative darkness the next – so you’ll notice the exposures below vary massively. I also got to grips with my Circular Polarizer… not so easy to use on moving objects though. You get rid of a certain amount of reflections, but because the cars are moving and they all have different lines for the bends, you get will get reflections in different places every time.
As usual, click to enlarge.
Marshals, Media and Spectators enjoy Sean Kennedy’s sideways antics in his AE86 Corolla. I’m not a Twin Cam fan, but there were two out in the Munster this year – both were flying and really entertaining to watch.
After SS2, the weather looked to be improving and I really couldn’t face going back to work, so I decided to make my way over to Knocklong and on down to SS6. I found a great spot thanks to the Marshals! Nice.
Yet another local man and regular Hillclimb competitor, Peter Cummins in his beautiful Darrian T90. Nice to see Peter in action – normally I’m worrying about him on the time sheets. 😉 I have another shot of Peter on my old site: Click Here.
