My machine and I

Mon 26th September 2011

The cars were a lot smaller than I expected, but it makes sense with the average driver being aged 16. I struggled to get my hips wedged into the cock pit!

I think I look quite at home here, don’t you?

 

JK Racing Series

Mon 26th September 2011

Our walk took us to an area where officals were packing up some JK Racing Series cars. We asked if we could sit in one, they said yes surprisingly!

Matt

Matt says...

I’m not going to lie, the car was as uncomfortable as it looks! It was being driven over the weekend by sixteen year old, Raj Bharath from India, the only Indian in the JK Series field. That explains why I don’t fit in the car then!

Thank you to Cornerstone Properties Private Limited who’s car it is for letting us take a photo!

I think Matt looks a bit uncomfortable here and for good reason – the cars were tiny!

 

Alonso (booo! hisss!)

Sat 24th September 2011

Turn 7 was fixed over night and the track is ready to go for practise 3 then qualifying. Here’s the Ferrari of Alonso getting a few laps under his belt.

Matt says...

I’m not a fan of Alonso, but the Ferrari is very photogenic. Especially under the street lights of Singapore.

I love watching the cars zip around this corner. They go so fast, sometimes they skid or lose their balance, which makes it all the more exciting!

 

Sparks flying

Fri 23rd September 2011

Taking photos of F1 cars flying past at such speed is a big challenge, but when you finally get a good photo it’s worth the wait. Love the sparks in this picture.

Matt

Matt says...

Here’s one of the HRT’s floor hitting the tarmac and sparking. It seems to be happening a lot here in Singapore. It must be due to it being a street circuit rather than a standard race track.

Webber getting excited

Fri 23rd September 2011

The first F1 practice was on the edge of your seat stuff. Within the first half an hour Mark Webber had already collided with Timo Glock.

Matt

Matt says...

Take a look at the front wing of Mark Webber’s car, the front right side is a tad broken. He got a little excited behind Timo Glock and collided with his rear tire. Nothing that a quick pit-stop won’t fix though.
