Hope this suits.

Our own Cliff Porter has agreed to act as official photographer for the day.

I am sure that Cliff will post here regarding this very soon.

Thank you M8. Note the pun Mark on Blyton 8. :lol:
I hope I can rise to the challenge and would really welcome comments from participants as to the sort of images they would like me to record, static or action on track so that I can plan my day and achieve my Fitbit count! (and get the Sun in the right direction to follow the cars "getting the wheels in line). I am reasonable good at panning shots - but have found no Gold yet.
May I also suggest that I produce an event CD of High res images from the event for distribution to all competitors, say £10 each with all proceeds split equally between MacMillan & if i remember correctly the Leukemia charity which Phil Anning is supporting. (My Mum had Leukemia and my step mother-in-law had the Cancer and supported by MacMillan so both charities are very close to my heart).
I will pay for the CD's and send them in bulk for to you to collect the donations and distribute to participants.
Maybe I will take some video but not so confident.
Really looking forward to being part of the event.
Cliff
ps For those of you of a certain age, a very good friend suggested that I might be "Wally" as in the "Where's Wally" book so look out for the red & white socks hiding in a flourescent yellow jacket. Might even get a red & white hat!
pps I will issue coloured windscreen stickers for preferred phot type.
ppps Close proximity shots will be pick & mix!
