    Thanks Kenny, it is a lovely car, I was lucky enough to spend some time chatting with Rob Kaufman about the car,
    Sadly he is a tad shorter than me so didn't get the drive.

    Good stuff Ken!

    I may have asked this before, but is the track spectator/photographer friendly?

    Great paddock shots, but I get the impression that many tracks, unobstructed views of the racing (ie not through wire fencing) are few and far between and many tracks, you can't walk all the way around for different viewpoints.

    Probably why the trip to Goodwood is always so enjoyable, being able to walk right around the track and get shots of every single corner.

    Probably the main reason why I haven't made a real effort to head to Highlands Park. A track that is great for drivers may not be so good for (paying) spectators, especially if wanting to take photographs.

    Ray,
    I leave the track photography to those that know what they are doing.
    I try to photograph the pit and paddock shots at an angle where I could use them to do race car drawings for the "grandies" which goes back to the days when I wanted to be the next Michael Turner, much to the annoyance of my Morrinsville College math teacher !
    I like Laguna Seca in many ways but I don't climb up Corkscrew hill like I used to.

    You might find something of interest in this article.

    Cheers,
    Ken

    Laguna Seca is busy again this weekend with the final race of the Indy Car Race Series for 2022.
    No matter how it turns out NZ should be very proud of their two Kiwis who will be competing for the title.
    Scott Dixon and Scott McLaughlin are wonderful ambassadors for the sport both on and off the track.

    Due to the race schedule being 5 minutes apart it led to some busy paddock moments as Historic Trans-Am cars came off as the Historic Formula cars went out.

    Ken, oh how I wish that the Europeans worked that way!

    Far better for paying spectators than the endless waits between races with nothing happening on track. If the Europeans adopted that system, they could have far more cars paying (lower) entry fees and if the last race schedules were basically some form of 'flying farewell' where the cars had already been out, so if their last race was canned due to track incidents/time restraints, so what?

    Teretonga impressed me greatly with their efficiency. Manfeild and Taupo are also on to it in terms of simply dragging towable cars to safety using ATV's, whilst Pukekohe and Hampton Downs seem to drag their heels, so too many races lose laps under safety cars.

    Ray,
    This is the busy 5 minute schedule I mentioned.
    As it was just practice and qualifying it meant there were seldom any issues out on the course.
    On the race days they had 10 minutes between each event!

    Some of the cars that had raced at Le Mans over the years and were on display at Laguna Seca.

    The beautifully restored GT 40 # 2 that had been driven to victory in 1966 by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon.

    So which was the best choice of tyres / tires from the various brands shown here ?
    The 1991 Bud Light Jaguar XJR -16 #3 was on Goodyear tires and also had Scott Goodyear as a driver.
    He was not related to the tire family.
