Justin Murphy’s 1964 Ginetta G4 is the meat in between Paul Tooms’ 1963 Lotus Elan and Andy Shepherd’s Lotus Seven. HSCC Historic Road Sports race on Finals Day, Silverstone 9th October 2010.
Nikon D50, Sigma 175-500 Zoom at 500mm, manual setting 1/160 sec, f/6.3, ISO 800.
On a lean day for photography with low light and high ISO, the lead Lotus is out of focus but it seemed wasteful to condemn the photograph to the recycle bin, hence the SC treatment.
Like its 1970s counterpart, the Historic Road Sports Championship is for production sports and GT cars built and registered between 1947 and 1969. To be eligible, models should have a period competition history and some modifications to engines and suspension are permitted. The grids are always packed, with models ranging from TVRs to Lotus, MG, Ginetta and Turner. Extra Championship points are awarded for cars driven to and from the circuit on the road

Confirmed Petrol Head first and foremost, who happens to enjoy photography as a hobby.
I was bitten by the motor sport bug at a young age and prefer long distance sports car racing over single seaters. I also love the passion and enthusiasm of the owners and drivers of historic race cars and find this form of motorsport, as well as rallying, the most spectacular because of the lower grip levels and loose style of driving employed.

    Great, love the SC on this one Willie!

  • Thanks Bill. I was trying to draw the eye to the car that is in focus.
