A selection of images taken on 18th January 2014, the first day of the New Zealand Festival of Motorsport at the Hampton Downs circuit. I was fortunate enough to coincide my holiday to NZ with this event as I've wanted to go to it for a few years.
Although it is a 'historic' event the featured cars were probably a bit too 'modern' for my tastes - I prefer older historics! But it proved to be a great circuit to spectate at and typically New Zealand - very welcoming.
With a new venue I normally like to spend a bit of time walking the circuit to work out the best viewpoints etc. However, with just a few hours there and only having my 'holiday zoom lens' with me I had little time to do much walking around so these images are just, in effect, a few 'holiday snaps'. Also struggling with a 7" screen and slow connection so it's difficult for me to view them properly but hopefully they are okay. Haven't had time to label them either - I am supposed to be on holiday, so better go now and take in some more NZ sun! #newzealand #newzealandmotorsport
