Didn’t Phillip Island turn it on for another action-packed round of the Shannons Nationals for 2019?

TCR Australia certainly set the benchmark for the weekend doing a pretty decent job to add to the highlights reel with a couple of big incidents during their races. Turns out I was only in the right place to get one of the big-ish crashes of the weekend, along with everyone else.

Australian GT, Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and Formula 4 also made sure they got some attention with their own action throughout the weekend. Even Tim Macrow had to get in on it, launching the S5000 during the demonstrations runs on the exit of Turn 1. Happened to be in the right place for that one.

Even though there were only four categories on the program at Phillip Island, they packed the schedule in tight to make the most of the track time, particularly on Saturday. It made for a busy couple of days.

Feel free to scroll through a small selection of my photos from Round 2 of the Shannons Nationals for 2019 at Phillip Island. Including a couple of the action/crash shots that I managed to capture.

With Rhys down at Winton Motor Raceway with Supercars, it was my job to cover the NSW Motor Racing State Champs at Wakefield Park.

So I better introduce myself… Hi, I’m Alek and I’m a photographer who Rhys has taken under his wing and given me an opportunity to work in motorsport as part of the InSyde Media team.

Wakefield Park is always an interesting track for me to shoot as it’s one of the few tracks on the calendar that I’ve driven myself, actually quite often. Having that perspective has been priceless when it comes to photographing events there. It’s been fascinating to see it from both points of view.

Have a look through a couple of my favourite photos from the NSW Motor Racing State Champs at Wakefield Park below and I’ll see you trackside again soon.

They call Winton Motor Raceway “The Nations Action Track” for a reason.

The Virgin Australia Supercars Championships annual pilgrimage to rural Victoria was loaded with drama, wasn’t it?

Supercars have used this year to try a lot of things, particularly to reduce their costs, so it was interesting to see how they ran the condensed two program for the main game. It did however, make Friday particularly busy one for us with back to back short support category sessions all day.

A couple of our customers notched up milestones at Winton which was a privilege to capture. Jayden Ojeda earned his first Super3 win taking out the third race of the weekend. While Broc Feeney got to opportunity to sample a main game Supercar for the first time, driving Anton De Pasquale’s Penrite Racing Holden ZB Commodore. 

It was great to see Formula Ford getting exposure on the big stage by running as a support category over the weekend. I believe its really important for the young drivers coming through to be able to showcase their ability and sponsors, not only on TV but also in front of a decent crowd. 

Feel free to scroll through a selection of my photos from the Virgin Australian Supercars Championship round at Winton Raceway, as well as a couple of shots from the support categories including the Super3, SuperUtes and Formula Ford. ‘

Well, the arrival of TCR Australia certainly made a big impact on the Shannons Nationals opener for 2019 at Sydney Motorsport Park.

In all my time covering Shannons Nationals event’s I’ve never seen such a crowd or media presence before for a round in Sydney. It was fantastic to see such support for the new category. Hopefully, particularly how good the racing was, we’ll see the same level of support at Phillip Island in a few weeks time. 

The on-track action wasn’t just limited to the TCR Australia cars, all the other categories put on a good show as well. It was fantastic to see a couple of our customers in Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and Formula 4 earning spots on the podium. I’d love to see these junior development categories also receive a boost from the extra media attention TCR has brought to the Shannons Nationals in 2019. 

In addition to the motorsport action, Alek Hoskins made his trackside photography debut as a member of the InSyde Media team. I’m always on the lookout at ways we can keep providing a better service to our customers. So as demand for our services has continued to grow, I’ve been looking create opportunities for talented young media professionals like Alek to join the team and will continue to do so.

Feel free to scroll through a small selection of Rhys and Alek’s photos from the opening round of the Shannons Nationals for 2019 at Sydney Motorsport Park. In particular TCR Australia, Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and Formula 4. If you are looking for photos from this event, or any future Shannons Nationals round, be sure to get in touch.

Got to admit I was really looking forward to getting over to Perth for the second ever SuperNight race.

Last years SuperNight race at Sydney Motorsport Park was a real challenge to shoot, making it a lot of fun to create some really memorable photos and some of my favourites from the entire 2018 season.

Supercars annual trip to Western Australia is always one of my personal highlights of the year anyway. But this year’s event was an even more exciting prospect with the added bonus of being able to shoot night racing again. Especially given the schedule was skewed so that we got to work with the golden light of sunset with the SuperUtes, the twilight with Super2 then well into the night with both Supercars and Australian GT on all three nights allowing for plenty of scope to try different things.

I really had a lot of fun trying different things, particularly with the sparks as the cars hit the kerb at Turn 7, and if it wasn’t for a bout of food poisoning that somewhat limited my movements around the track I probably would have had a harder time cutting down the number of photos to share in this post.

Feel free to scroll through a small-ish selection of my photos from the Virgin Australian Supercars Championship’s Perth SuperNight event at Barbagallo Raceway as well as a couple of shots from the support categories including the Dunlop Super2 Series, Australian GT and SuperUtes.

Photo Shoots: March/April 2019

Photo Shoots: March/April 2019

March and April was another big month for InSyde Media in terms of photo shoots outside official race meetings.

Rhys kicked off March by having the privilege of working with Peter from the Redline again to complete a couple of editorial style photo shoots of both the quirky Citroen C5 Cactus and the sporty Mini Cooper S.

We also attended the Toyota 86 Racing Series Media Launch day at Phillip Island where we worked with Toyota to supply on track images of the new look Toyota Gazoo Racing 86’s.  As well as with reigning champion and longtime InSyde Media customer, Tim Brook who asked us to do a photo shoot to help launch his new 2019 Toyota 86 Series livery. We then hung around to capture some testing action shots for customers across T86RS, Super3 and Carrera Cup.

Just two days later we were at Wakefield Park with Lachlan Mineeff to help launch his new Purple Sector backed Formula Ford. Part of that particular job was a formal photo shoot in the garage to showcase the new livery. We then photographed and videoed the car on the track and in the pits during the remainder of the test day to help Lachlan with social media content to launch and promote the new partnership. We’ll have further projects with Purple Sector going forward.

Rhys also attended Sydney Jamboree at Sydney Dragway on special assignment from Auto Action to help their coverage of the event. A slightly different form of motorsport and a new unique challenge of only having one shot.

After the Supercars round at Phillip Island, Rhys hung around at the request of Team 18 to photograph their ride day. A much more relaxed atmosphere to some of the ride days we’ve covered with only one car to manage, but the job not only involved photographing but also printing photos so their guest had mementos to take home from the day.

In addition, we had Craig help with coverage of the Porsche Center Adelaide’s official launch party for new Porsche 911 992.

Then to wrap a busy few months, we continued our work with Fieldbox to capture more photos of their recently completed project to continue to build up their content for social media to help promote their products. 

Feel free to scroll through a small sampling of photos from these varied and diverse shoots throughout March and April below.
