While Rhys was down at Symmons Plains for the Supercars round, we had Dave out at Sydney Motorsport Park to cover our customers at the NSW Motor Racing Champs.

At the start of the year, we made a commitment to our customers at NSW state level to make sure we give them the same level of coverage as our national level customers receive. With that, we have made the decision to expand and make sure one of InSyde Media’s team will be at every round of the NSW Motor Racing Champs throughout 2019. 

It was also particularly important to be at this event being the open round of the Australian Formula Ford Championship for 2019. We had a number of our young up and coming drivers competing over the weekend. Our attendance was part of our ongoing plan to work with young drivers to help them the some of the resources they need to build their profiles and careers. Something we will look to expand upon in the future. 

Below you can scroll through a small selection of Dave’s photos from the NSW Motor Racing Champs at Sydney Motorsport Park. Be sure to get in touch if you are looking for assistance with your media in 2019.

After two grand events to kick off the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, the series returned to its roots with a more low key round at Symmons Plains in Tasmania. 

While the carnival-style atmosphere of both the Adelaide 500 and Melbourne Grand Prix is something to special to be part of. Particularly when the off-track entertainment is just as important as the on track. However, there is also something to be said about racing at permanent race tracks with a much purer motorsport, track-focused, experience. It’s really important to have a good mix of events and experiences, not only for fans but also to keep things fresh for teams and crews throughout the year.

The little bull-ring style track at Symmons Plains made for action-packed racing. This was particularly evident in the support categories, Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Aussie Racing Cars, Formula Vee and the local Sport’s GT. Plenty of passing and some slipstreaming battles down the back straight.

It was rough and tumble for the Supercars teams as well, particularly in practice and qualifying. That said they were probably playing things a little more conservatively than previous years during the race given the tight turn around to get to Phillip Island with the back to back rounds.

The Australian Grand Prix is a huge event, so we’re very fortunate to be able to work there each and every year.

This year we didn’t have access to shoot Formula 1, which wasn’t a major issue for our customers. We had plenty of other work to do with Formula 4, Australian GT, Carrera Cup and the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. And it was also good to have the opportunity to sit down and watch some of the Formula 1 action as a spectator, albeit briefly, and have a different perspective of the performance of the F1 cars.

That said Sunday, race day, we finished up shooting the last Supercars race, packed up and headed back to our hotel to watch the race. The crowd was huge this year and would have been too difficult to get a good vantage point in the general admission areas by the time we finished up our work. A fantastic problem for the Grand Prix organisers to have.

Just like that the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship is underway! The Adelaide 500 was a scorcher and not just the on-track action.

We had a huge week in South Australia for the Adelaide 500, kicking off not only the Supercars season but also the Dunlop Super2 Series, ECB SuperUtes Series, Touring Car Masters and Aussie Racing Cars seasons. 

As with all things motorsport, a lot of our deals came together at the last minute but we looked after customers, not only with photos but also basic PR services, across all the categories competing in Adelaide including Asia’s Audi LMS Cup series. Making for a busy yet productive event.

Each year we try to make sure we provide an even better service for our customers, but the real challenge this year was coping with the back to back 40+ degrees days. The temperature definitely took its toll this year and by the end of Friday Rhys was physically broken after spending the morning on top of the platform at Turn 8 capturing those iconic images, but exposed to the harsh sun for several hours. A lot of sunscreen and water was consumed over the course of the Adelaide 500. 

Rhys rallied and tried to spend the rest of the weekend trying to keep cool and shooting the on track action from some of the shaded areas around the track. Of which there is still a good variety given the structures and trees around the Adelaide Parklands during the 500. And we provided our customers with a good variety of shots from around the street circuit over the course of the four days.

Photo Shoots: January/February 2019

Photo Shoots: January/February 2019

In an effort to showcase more of our… well, let’s say the non-motorsport photography work that we complete during the year, particularly jobs that don’t justify their own individual blog posts, we’ve decided to do a bi-monthly showcase of favourite photos during 2019.

Being the motorsport offseason, we packed the first two months of the year with a number of corporate jobs as well as several automotive editorial shoots.

We had the privilege of photographing and sampling several interesting cars, including the sporty Jaguar F-Type, Peugeot 208 GTi and Suzuki Swift Sport as well as the delving into the world of electric and hybrid cars including the Range Rover Evoque and both the plug-in and hybrid versions of the Hyundai IONIQ. Photos from these shoots have been published in a number of leading motoring news and review outlets (all of which I need to track down). 

We also continued our corporate work with Bridgestone, photographing a number of their recently completed B-Select stores around NSW. We’ve worked with Bridgestone a number of times now, one of our customers that crosses over between work in motorsport and in the corporate worlds.

Fieldbox, a new customer, also engaged us to complete a photoshoot of one of their new products in addition to an ongoing project we’ll be helping them with to develop their website and social media. We’ll continue to work with them over the next few months to photograph more of their products and build up their brand presence online.

Aussie Driver Search also asked us to help them kick off the new year by helping them capture their corporate partnership day at Sydney Motorsport Park. Similar to other ride and drive events we cover during the year, giving the guests a memento of their experience was the most important element of the day. But we also had an opportunity to capture a little bit of behind the scenes so the team could post a gallery to their social media and Rhys could put a brief video together of the day (which you can view below).

We’ve been getting more and more requests to provide our national level motorsport services to those who are competing in state rounds, so we headed out to Wakefield Park over the weekend for the opening round of the CAMS NSW State Motor Racing Championships.

It’s always a great experience to work with young drivers to build up their careers, so being able to help them out at the grassroots level and form that relationship early is a fantastic opportunity for both us and them.  It’s always fantastic to witness that transition from entering the sport to watching them step up to either Supercars or racing overseas and playing a tiny part in their story.

We’re working hard behind the scenes to make sure we’ll have a photographer at all NSW State Championship rounds in 2019 to provide the same level of service our Supercars and Shannons Nationals level customers receive. Obviously, scheduling conflicts dictate that Rhys can’t be everywhere at all times. 

The weekend was also a great opportunity being the opening round of the NSW Production Touring Cars, to work with some of our customers for the upcoming Bathurst 6 Hour. We ticked off a lot of little PR style shoots get a bunch of drivers ready for their announcements over the next few weeks. 

Below we’ve put together a small sampling of our photos from the opening round of the NSW State Motor Racing Championships at Wakefield Park. Be sure to scroll through and if you are looking for photos of yourself from the event, be sure to get in touch.
