"Master of Midshires" Grasstrack Meeting -2009
This came about after my father expressed an interest in photographing this event after reading an article in the "Vale" magazine; however he was unable to attend on the day and I ended doing this by myself.  
 
This collection is a sample of the photographs I took during the meeting, all of which were taken from the southeast corner of the track (which I felt would give me optimum lighting conditions throughout the afternoon).     I will admit my knowledge of grasstrack racing is next to non-existent, and it didn't help that I couldn't get hold of an event brochure, which might have made things a little clearer.    However, I was pleased with the photography, although my choice of a 200mm lens rather than a 300mm meant that nearly all the photographs had to be recomposed afterwards (however, I feel that this was the right decision based on the lighting conditions, which were at times somewhat overcast).
 
 I would like to do this event again, but the current venue is not as convenient for me as the 2009 one was.
