Photo Gallery: Asian Le Mans Series at The Bend 2020

I only get a chance to cover international events a couple of times a year, so when the Asian Le Mans Series made an appearance at The Bend Motorsport Park I knew I had to be there.

Being able to showcase what I do on an international stage is always a special opportunity, and photographing Le Mans style prototypes for the first time was an awesome experience. Working at the Le Mans 24 Hour is definitely on the bucket list, but for now, this has been the closest been to these types of cars. I’ve got to say they are really impressive bits of machinery and very keen to see them in action more often.

I’m very fortunate to do get to do what I get to do for a living, building up this business. But occasionally when these unique events pop up that I don’t have any proper connections in and I know aren’t going to profitable that I give myself a bit of free reign, take the pressure off and get back to just genuinely enjoying taking photos and getting creative. Most importantly enjoy motorsport.

The Asian Le Mans Series round at The Bend was a great way to kick off the motorsport season for 2020. Take a little more of a relaxed approach before getting into the very serious business of the Bathurst 12 Hour in a couple of weeks. That said I’d like to do more Asian Le Mans Series events, but we’ll see how that plays out.

In the meantime, he’s a couple of favourite photos from The Bend. As always if you are looking for photos from this event, would like to chat about further Asian Le Mans Series rounds or anything else to help you prepare for the 2020 motorsport season, be sure to get in touch.

As the year wound to a close, we did a couple of jobs for some of our regular customers including Porsche, Bridgestone and Trackschool.

Typically December and even January are fairly quiet when it comes to both our on and off-track work… So picking up a couple of extra jobs here and there is always handy, particularly amongst our corporate customers.

In addition to photography we also put together a couple of short videos including this one for Trackschool

Here’s a small sampling of some photos we took during our shoots throughout November and December. As always if you are looking for photography and/or video services for any project, be sure to get in touch to see if we can be of assistance.

Just like that… The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship is over for another year.

After a dramatic, action-packed and possibly even scandalous season (as has been well documented). A somewhat sedate, at least from a Supercars point of view, Newcastle 500 was probably just what was needed as everyone’s attention started to shift towards next years championship.

The end of the motorsport season is always bittersweet, but this year particularly so. We bid a fond farewell to Garry Rogers Motorsport and the Nissan Altima which both took to the Supercars grid for the last time. While with so many drivers and other team personnel on the move in 2020, this year’s “end of the school year vibe” felt a lot more like a graduation celebration.

That said, it wasn’t just Supercars in action in Newcastle and I want to make a special mention of InSyde Media customer Aaron Borg who won the Toyota 86 Racing Series.

As you may have been able to tell, we’re really proud of our customer’s achievements and capturing those moments for them throughout the year. It has been great to see some many of our customers, not only win titles, but also races, or even just set personal bests throughout the year. It’s been fantastic to alongside them for that journey and I’m really looking forward to seeing where they progress to in 2020.

Feel free to scroll through a small selection of my favourite photos from the final Supercars round for 2019 on the streets of Newcastle below. And as always if you are looking for photos from this event or anything else to help you prepare for the 2020 motorsport season, be sure to get in touch.

It was a huge debut season for TCR Australia, wasn’t it? The season finale of the Shannons Nationals for 2019 at The Bend was a great way to send off the new for 2019 category with ten different brands represented on the grid.

We never know when a new category launches onto the Australian motorsport scene. So it has been fantastic to see TCR so widely embraced and adopted as the headline act on the Shannons Nationals roster. Something that not only the Shannons Nationals needed, but Australian motorsport needed.

I’ve mentioned it many times on this blog before, but the extra interest that TCR has brought to the Shannons Nationals, which will only increase with next year’s new TV deal, is a great thing for the sport that we all love. Anytime that new people take an interest in motor racing can only be a good thing for those of us who live and breath it on a daily basis. I’m really thankful for those who invested the time and money to make it happen.

It wasn’t only final round for TCR Australia. Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and Australian Production Cars also wrapped up for 2019 and it was great to see InSyde Media customer Harri Jones claim the second-tier Porsche title. While S5000 made their second cameo before their inaugural season commences in 2020.

Some might say that luck is a matter of when preparation meets opportunity, but there was a lot of luck involved at the penultimate round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship for 2019, the Sandown 500.

Not only for myself to capture such a dramatic sequence of images, but also for everyone else involved. Big crashes often have big consequences, especially when car leaves the circuit. So it was great to see John Iafolla walk away from this particularly big crash during the final Toyota 86 Racing Series race at Sandown.

Sandown is one of those tracks we’ve seen a lot of big crashes over the years. Supercars annual highlights reels almost always feature a big crash from Sandown, particularly through the Dandenong Road section. It’s something as a photographer that when you go to shoot in that section of the circuit you know you need to be prepared for and keep your toes and react to whatever presents itself. And that’s exactly what I did when this particular crash played out in front of me.

Now that the images have gone through their publication cycle with Auto Action etc… here’s the sequence of photos I captured during John’s spectacular roll over:

That all said. The roll over wasn’t the only thing that happened at Sandown. It was also retro round for the Supercars teams and some of the teams did an exceptional job with their retro liveries this year.

Here’s a few of my other favourite photos from Sandown from the Supercars action, as well as a couple of other photos from the some of the other categories who ran at Sandown over the weekend. As always if you are looking for photos from this event or any future events, be sure to get in touch.

September and October were definitely on the hectic side here at InSyde Media.

The majority of our work was trackside pretty much every weekend. We also snuck in a couple of other jobs, including a couple of track and test days for different customers including one that Cameron Hill ran to give his Formula Ford racers the opportunity to test his Carrera Cup car at Wakefield Park.

Not only did we take a few photos, but we also filmed and produced a video that you can view here:

Rhys also did a couple of jobs for The Redline including these Alfa Romeo 4C and BMW X3M shoots featured in the gallery below.

While Ben took care of a special black-tie event for Porsche Center Adelaide, amoungst our work with different dealerships. You can check out those photos here.

Browse through a small sampling of some of the other photos from those shoots below, and if you are looking for photography and/or video services for any project, be sure to get in touch to see if we can be of assistance.
