Last year's birthday present rolled over to this year, British F1 grand prix, so hopefully I can capture some of the action 🤞

My first time, plus sprint race qualifying on the Saturday should be interesting 🤔
Oh yes, forgot about that. Will be very interesting. Silverstone's a bit tricky to shoot as there's catch fencing pretty much everywhere (Donington's not far behind now :(), but if you are going during free practice on the Friday or Saturday you might be able to shoot through the letterbox openings in the catch fencing on the outside of the loop that are in place for the media togs.

That being said my favourite motorsport shot I've taken was through the catch fencing at Brooklands.

That's cool, you should be able to get access to the outside of the loop then as that's in the infield if that makes sense? I forgot that they stop you when you go to the F1, when I went to the Moto GP you could walk over the bridge as you pleased.

Outlon Park's getting worse for fencing too, although there's still lots more fence free parts than Donington (my local track) these days (my 2nd favourite shot was from Outlon Park). Last time I went to Donington they were even putting up barriers 6ft or so back from the catch fencing so you couldn't even go up to the catch fencing to 'shoot through' it 🤬 I did look at getting accreditation so that I can go trackside but you need to earn some income from your photography so that idea was soon put to bed :laugh:

I hope you enjoy the F1, it's a great experience. Will it be a full crowd? If so get there early as the road in can be a royal pain.
