Shannons Nationals Round 7 at Sydney Motorsport Park for 2016
That’s it, the Shannons Nationals are over for another year with the seventh and final round at Sydney Motorsport Park over the weekend.
I’ve been very privileged this year to be able to work with some of the best teams and most talented drivers over the course of the Shannons Nationals. On top of my commitments with various motorsport media outlets. It’s made for an exciting year for me personally, playing a small part in promoting their accomplishments throughout the year.
While I’ve picked up a variety of customers over the course of the season. I have to make special mention of two in this particular blog post.
Firstly Dennie from Alpine Motorsport. Dennie asked me to cover the team’s first Formula 3 championship winning campaign with Tim Macrow at the wheel. Not only was it Alpine Motorsport’s first championship title, it was also its first full year as a professional team. But with Macrow at the wheel, they smashed all sorts of Formula 3 records, which was massive achievement for the team. Ultimately giving Macrow his third Formula 3 Premier Class title.
Secondly I’ve got to make mention of Cameron Shields, Formula 3 National Class Champion. Take note of his name, he’s a genuine talent. That’s not just my opinion, ask anyone he’s raced against this year. Cameron is a star of the future and I’ve taken great pride in working with him and his family to promote his achievements each and every round.
I am really looking forward to seeing what 2017 will offer, not only for Cameron Shields and the Alpine Motorsport team, but everyone I’ve had the privilege of working with during the 2016 Shannons Nationals.

My Favourite Photos from the Shannons Nationals at Sydney Motorsport Park
This particular photo of 2016 Formula 3 Champion, Tim Macrow, was one of my favourites of the weekend. It was taken at 1/50th of a second at 200mm while standing in the grandstand during the second Formula 3 race.
The panning shot showcases the speed of Macrow down the main straight. While including the setting of the iconic yellow “hamburger” control tower that Sydney Motorsport Park give the shot location and context.
Now here are a few more photos from the round that I liked. If you’d like to see any of the other work I produced at Sydney Motorsport Park, head on over to my Facebook Page where I’ve shared all the links.
I’ll definitely be covering the Shannons Nationals again in 2017. If you’d like to know more about my photo and media packages for the 2017 motorsport season, or any of the other services I provide. Just get in touch via my contact me page or any of my social media accounts.
In the meantime I’ve still got a few events left to cover to wrap up the 2016 motorsport season. Next up I’ll be covering the worlds best rally drivers at Rally Australia up in Coffs Harbour.
