For those that don’t already know I’m part of a drag racing team called Humpy Racing. After a six month break we were back on the quarter mile on Saturday.
I’ve been taking been taking photos of the Team for many years now and this was one of the main reasons why I decided to buy my first SLR, which I got just before our last race.
I really relish the opportunity to try and find new ways to capture something I’ve been photographing for so long. I’m really proud of my efforts in the most recent race.
A couple of shots are above. The rest can be found on the Humpy Racing fan page (in album 2) (www.facebook.com/humpyracing) or on my flickr photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/awhisperer/sets/72157623381413321/www.facebook.com/humpyracing) or on my flickr photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/awhisperer/sets/72157623381413321/).
Hope you like them!
Are you looking out me?! A big burnout from one of the competitors at the February 2010 round of the Australian Nostalgia Drag Racing series held at Willowbank Raceway. I was crewing for Humpy Racing but in between the racing and taking photos for the Team, I had a few opportunities to take photos of some of the other competitors as well as the show n’ shine. The rest of the results can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/awhisperer/sets/72157623352894019/
Keep an eye out for the Humpy Racing photos from the event which are still to come!
In my first piece for my new Girlracer Magazine column, The Power Fix, I talk about last Saturday’s Nitro Funny Car round at Willowbank Raceway. Here’s just one of my photos and I hope to be able to share more with you by the end of the week.
