It’s always good to get out to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’s preseason test day and get up to speed with all the offseason changes before we head to Adelaide.

Obviously, the biggest change for this year has been the introduction of the Ford Mustang. So it was particularly good to see six of them ready to represent the Blue Oval before the season commences. No bias here, but manufacturer support is good for the sport.

The Mustang looks much better in race trim than the initial camo photos suggested. We were commissioned by Auto Action to shoot the Ford Mustang race car alongside one of Tickford’s road versions, which you’ll need to pick up the next issue of the magazine to see the actual photos, but interesting see the comparison. While there are some of the proportions aren’t perfect, it’s not nearly as far out of whack as the initial fuss made it out to be.

Phillip Island’s test was also a great opportunity to get up to speed with the team, sponsor and driver changes ahead of Phillip Island. No doubt we’ll still send the odd Lee Holdsworth on track photo when asked for a Mark Winterbottom one while we adjust to that offseason change, but we should be on top of that after the first couple of rounds.

As for shooting the test day, we had a really simple program to run through. The first couple of hours was spent getting a front on, front three-quarter and simple side pan of each of the cars for Auto Action’s pre-season coverage. It would have been great if all the cars could have spent the first hour on track at the same time, but not to be. One of the side effects of having such a big window of track time for them to take advantage of.

Once we’d tick that box then we could get a little more creative. But once again without a significant number of cars on the track at the same time, it meant significant amounts of time were spent standing around shooting only one or two cars.

To round out the day we spent the afternoon in and around the pits trying to get a lot of candid behind the scenes shots and headshots of the drivers and crews, once again so that Auto Action could have a comprehensive selection of shots in the lead up to the Adelaide 500.

Below we’ve put together a small selection of some of our favourite photos from the Supercars pre-season test at Phillip Island. Make sure you pick up the next issue of Auto Action for more.

No better way to break out of the off-season than by jumping straight into one of the biggest events of the year, the Bathurst 12 Hour.

This year’s Bathurst 12 Hour was an even bigger event for the InSyde Media team, not only because the organisers added an extra day to the schedule, but we had some high profile customers including Scott Taylor Motorsport running the entries for two Supercars teams (Triple Eight and Erebus).

While the STM guys struck issues during the event and were robbed of at least one good result, our customer Grove Racing took their fourth straight Class B victory. The Aussie Driver Search crew also finished on the podium in the Pro-Am class, not bad for their debut at the event.

It was great to rise up to the challenge and bring a team (Nath and Rosco) to Mt Panorama to really make sure our customers had comprehensive and timely coverage of the event.

We’ve put together a small gallery of some of our favourite photos from the Bathurst 12 Hour, which you can scroll through below. If you’d like to see some of our shots from the support categories, we’ve posted a gallery on our Facebook Page.

It’s always a privilege to work with Kyle and the Aussie Driver Search crew. The program that they run is quite a unique opportunity, and we are very privileged to play a small part supporting ambitious drivers fulfilling their motorsport dreams.

Kyle asked us to cover the two-day finals of their 2018 program at Wakefield Park, and we were more than happy to oblige.

The Aussie Driver Search team provide such a fantastic program to give out those who wouldn’t be able to compete in national level motorsport a chance. It was interesting to see the competitors that had progress through to the finals as well as the behind the scenes of the judging process, which really made sure the most well-rounded drivers progressed as the day continued.

Some really talented drivers made it to the last rounds of judging in their respective categories. So the winners should be really proud of their achievements.

Below we’ve put together a small selection of favourite photos from the Aussie Driver Search finals in 2018. You can see more of our handy work in the ADS Final Day 1 and Day 2 galleries on their Facebook page.

We’re looking forward to continuing to work with Aussie Driver Search in 2019.
