Best of My Motorsport Photography for 2015

V8 Supercars Darwin

Well what a year that was… I’ve been lucky to attend some really top quality motorsport events throughout 2015. I’ve captured plenty of on track action and off track emotion. I’ve got literally thousands of photos covering the highs and lows of motorsport. So I thought I’d take a look back at some of my favourite photos from the year that was.

I kicked the year off a stellar year of motorsport photography at the Bathurst 12 Hour in February, before following the V8 Supercars championship all over Australia and New Zealand. I’ve covered everything from a local Hillclimb’s through to Formula 1 in 2015. It has been a very interesting ride and I’m very interested to see what 2016 has to offer.

However you’re here for my best photos from the year, so here’s a look back at my favourite photos from 2015.

Now that you’ve seen those here’s a few random stats I collected through out the year.

  • Photos Taken: Over 154,000
  • Motorsport Events Attended: 25
  • Different Motorsport Venues: 17
  • Days Spent at Race Tracks: 65
  • Flights: 24 across two countries for a total of 30,500 kilometers
  • Road Trips: 6 through three states for a total of 6500 kilometers

So I’ve covered a fair bit of ground this year. With all of that done, I’m really looking forward to more great motorsport events in 2016.
