So what is happening….

Hi folks, I thought it was time for a quick update to let everyone know what is currently happening.

As many are (not) aware of, I also have an instagram feed (leytonc.agfphoto), as well as the FaceBook and the website. This week I am running a set of images from the paddock, pit-lane and holding area of racers and support crews getting ready to get out on the track and race. This follows on from my love of street photography.

Next weekend is particular exciting as I  am heading down (and my Camera!) to the Oulton Park circuit for the last round of the BRSCC Alpha Romeo Championship, should be meeting up with Kristian from Enertech Racing as well since he is driving.

Once all the images are processed and posted, I will give you all a post race report.

The weekend after, sees the last round of the SMRC at Knockhill for this season, I am hoping to there as well – So its going to be a busy couple of weeks.

Remember,  that prints and high resolution unwatermarked images are available as well, if you are interested please let me know.

Stay well, and if you are needing some photography let me know,

Leyton.

2017 Super Lap Scotland Awards Report

Thanks to Marshall Wishart (Mazda RX8, class F) we were invited to join everyone at the 2018 SLS Awards! It was a fantastic evening of fun at the Hilton Doubletree North Queensferry with good food and even better company right into wee small hours. The full stat-twiddling numbers are published here so please feel free to visit those to see the full standings. I would like to celebrate the evening by sharing some of the more memorable images from the evening…

 

There was a great turn out for the evening and the room was completely packed. There were a variety of main awards and some great extra rewards for some very special people.
Talking the amount of awards, here is the left hand table of silverware ready for handing out…
Once the left hand side have been dealt with, the right hand side had to be dealt with…
The awards for class F, With Marshall picking up the 2nd place trophy with Neil Methven collecting the converted 1st place and Martin Brown in 3rd. Only 7 points separate 1st to 3rd.
BUT not all the awards are for how you do on the track. Marshall also picked up the best kept race car award. Marshall lives and works on Shetland so its amazing how well the car is kept and how far it has to travel to get to Knockhill.  
Once the food and awards are finished, we get a chance to view all the silverware collected on the evening. Sadly not everyone can be a winner.  

Once the awards ceremony was complete, the dance, beer pong and racing simulator were brought out and the party began in earnest! It was great chance to speak to everyone and catch up before the season kicks off.  I would like to thank the many people I spoke to who enjoyed my photography over the year and I would also like to ask people who do follow us on social media to continue sharing, liking and tagging SLS drivers, fans and pit crews so as many people as possible who are involved can see the images and keep enjoying the days they spend on the track.

So that is brief overview of the SLS 2017 awards night! We now move forward to the new season, ready and refreshed to break those lap records. Hopefully I will get a shot of you doing it.

That was the year where…

Now the new year is in full swing and we are all looking forward to getting our teeth in to the new racing season, I thought it would be fun to have a look at a few of my favourite moments from last seasons racing. I have not limited this to just SLS or Fiesta Racing, but I have taken some moments from other track, and track side fun. I did leave out some of the more distressing moments, like the MG engine that had completely destroyed itself. We are looking forward to more fun, not just the death of metal! If you would like to see more, then please have a look at our facebook page.

I have been told the SLS awards night has been announced, so if you needing to go, keep an eye open for the invite.

Here are the images, please enjoy. Click on an image to view, and scroll between them.
