Photographer’s view of a V8 Supercar race in Townsville

Took a couple of minutes out of shooting yesterday to give you a look at the view from a few photo positions around the Townsville 400 track.  Thank god for earplugs (when I remember to put them in!)

Day 1 of the Townsville 400

Thought I’d post a few pics from yesterday – many of the drivers arrived in town yesterday and attended a lunch and then did their track walks.  I had a few portrait jobs with the teams and of course didn’t miss the chance [link] to photograph the grid girls!  Click the pics to view a larger version.

Castle Hill view of the Townsville 400 track

Had to do a quick job with Todd and Rick Kelly this morning on the top of Townsville’s Castle Hill so took the opportunity to snap a few pics of the track from this high vantage point.  Click any of the pics to view a large version.

Tough job but I guess someone has to do it!

Been working away in the hot sun at the Townsville 400 V8 Supercar event.  Only day 1 of 4 and already I have the best pic of the event in the bag.  Easy peasy! :-)

(yes, that’d be me in the middle!)

BIG weekend in Townsville!

It has been a busy couple of week in Townsville, Qld.  We have had the Townsville Show (exhibition/fair depending on where you live), a round of the Australian Offshore Superboat Championships, two four-day test matches between Australia A and Pakistan A, the Cowboys have played and beaten the Sharks, a NQ Fury FC family fun day and this weekend will be the biggest of the lot when V8 Supercar racing comes to town.  The Townsville 400 will be held over three days from Friday to Sunday and I’ll be covering the event for News Limited metropolitan newspapers (The Courier-Mail/Sunday Mail, The Daily Telegraph/Sunday Telegraph, The Herald Sun/Sunday Herald Sun, The Advertiser/The Sunday Mail, Sunday Times, and The Australian/Weekend Australian).  Should keep me on my toes!

It looks like it is going to be a perfect weekend in Townsville with clear skies and cool low-mid 20′s during the day.  Gentlemen, start your engines!
