I’m not very good at getting my days of the week correct at the moment. Didn’t even have a clue it was Tuesday and I completely forgot to put a blog post up this Sunday ! I think I need to get back to routine … Either way I’m back today with some new pictures and have been putting a few up on flickr recently although unfortunately I don’t think they are going to make it up onto the blog. Instead I have something a bit different for today !
Yesterday, being a bank holiday Monday here in the UK, there was a special event at the local race track. Now Foxhall stadium is the host of some of the biggest stock car races in the country, with stock cars being a contact motor-sport around an oval track. The car of choice for this sort of race tends to be a Ford Escort or any other similar car that can be salvaged from the scrapyard and coaxed back to life. Then they get thrashed around a race track and usually get utterly destroyed. As I’m sure you can see from these pictures, its quite a sight and an exiting thing to photography, although not by any means the easiest !
Stock cars is fun ! 😛
