It was great to work with the AMRS crew again at Wakefield Park after the last-minute call-up to cover the previous round at Sydney Motorsport Park.

I could waffle on about a whole bunch of things, but the real reason you are here is to check out some of the photos. So here’s a small selection from the Wakefield Park round of the AMRS to scroll through.

If you are looking for photos from this event or any others, make sure you get in touch and ask for a sample sheet to see what we took.

Every year The Mountain tells a story… And this year’s Bathurst 1000 was certainly no exception.

Laps records tumbled. The Ford Mustang won at Bathurst for the first time. Scott McLaughlin ticked another box in his stellar Supercars career. And it was another win for DJR 30 years after their last one.

If you look beyond all the harsh comments on social media and the journalistic sensationalism, it was actually a remarkable result not only for the team, but for the sport as well. Bathurst is Supercars biggest stage, people who wouldn’t normally watch motorsport will watch the Bathurst 1000. So for a manufacturer and a team who’ve made a huge investment in the sport recently, particularly this year, to get a result is a good thing. Regardless of your allegiance.

As for the InSyde Media side of things, Bathurst is always a massive undertaking. I asked Nathan to come in and give me a hand to make sure all of our customers left the event with all the iconic photos they’ve come to expect from us at Mt Panorama.

Four days might seem like a lot of time the track, and it is for the Supercars sessions with seven hours of practice in the lead up to the big race. But for the support categories, with their short one or two sessions per day, having an extra photographer was an important investment to really made sure thall all of our customers ended up with full coverage of them and their car around the circuit.

It’s not everyday you get to race at Bathurst. So I always make sure we make that extra effort to capture those memories.

Have a scroll through some of my favourite photos from the Bathurst 1000 below, and as always, if you are looking for photos from this event or any future events, be sure to get in touch.

If I’m being really honest, I hadn’t really planned on covering any of the AMRS rounds this year.

Nothing against the AMRS events. It was just how the schedule played out and our prior commitments amongst other national-level series.

Ideally, I’d like InSyde Media to be represented at every major motorsport event in Australia providing the service that our regular customers know so well. However, the logistics of pulling that off and having a big enough customer base to justify having photographers all over the country takes time to build up which means I really do need to be somewhat selective as to which events and categories I commit us to.

That said, the Sydney Motorsport Park AMRS round didn’t conflict with any other events and after a couple of requests, particularly from TA2, I thought I better make an appearance.

It was fantastic to see such decent-sized grids, especially in TA2 and the RX8 Cup. There really is a market place for a cost-effective option for motorsport competitors to race at a national level. Probably more so now that the Shannons Nationals continue to grow from strength to strength with TCR and S5000.

Moving right along to the real reason that you are here. Here’s a small sampling of my favourite photos from the AMRS at Sydney Motorsport Park so feel free to scroll through those below.

Due to popular demand, I will make a cameo appearance at the next AMRS round at Wakefield Park also, so if you’d like to know more about photo packages or other media services, make sure that you get in touch.

So… Umm… The Shannons Nationals round at Sandown was huge!

Like, actually, properly, huge. Now don’t get me wrong, I knew it was going to be big with the arrival of S5000, the penultimate round of TCR Australia and the season finale for the Super3 Series. Not to mention to the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Australian GT and some Australian Production Cars Series action were thrown into the mix for good measure.

I just didn’t realise how big it was going to be. I’ve never seen a crowd like that at Shannons Nationals round, ever. And I’ve never been run off my feet like that at a Shannons Nationals round before either.

Normally there is a “throw-away category”… Wait, don’t get upset with me, I’ll clarify. Usually one of the categories on a schedule I don’t have any individual customers in so I don’t have to pay as much attention to it as some of the other categories. Something I do very deliberately so all I have to do I shoot a little bit of action to meet our obligations with Auto Action, but then, for the most part, I can skip it and get back to the media center to make sure I can get photos out to our customers in a timely fashion so they can keep on top of their social media at any given event.

Sandown’s stacked schedule didn’t have a “throw-away category” which was fantastic, not only from a business point of view but for the fans as well. I mean it did leave me scrambling to get things done as quickly as possible, but it was an engaging program all the way through. The huge amount of fans that showed up and the record numbers on the live stream certainly got their values worth.

After a quiet event like Winton a couple of weeks before, it was really good for the Shannons Nationals to have such a strong round and I’m keen to see if that flows onto the final round at The Bend Motorsport Park in November.

Anyway, that’s a little of the behind the scenes look at how I saw the Shannons Nationals round at Sandown. Now for you are really here for, a few of my favourite photos from the weekend.

As always have a bit of a scroll through and as always if you are looking for photos from this event or any future events, be sure to get in touch.

We’re not strangers to some cold and blustering conditions at a race track, but the gale-force winds during Wakefield Park’s September round for the NSW State Championships were some of the toughest conditions we’ve ever experienced.

Saturday in particular, the winds were so strong that it made it difficult to keep cameras steady on tripods for some of the video footage we needed to capture. Let alone trying to capture panning photos. The force on the wind gusts was actually worse than the infamous dust storm at Tailem Bend at the first Shannons Nationals event.

That said both Alek and I preserved to make sure our customers, particularly across the Australian Formula Ford Championship had plenty of content, not only photos but in some cases video as well.

Here’s a couple of mine and Alek’s favourite photos from the NSW Motor Racing State Champs at Wakefield as well as a couple of the videos we put together for our customers.

I thought the Shannons Nationals round at Winton Raceway would be a relatively quiet event with TCR Australia and only the two support categories.

It turned out to be a pretty busy for me actually. One of our long-time customers Tim Brook got the opportunity to make his TCR Australia debut, so to help him make the most of it, I took over his social media for the event so he could focus on driving the Wall Racing Honda Civic for the first time.

We also worked with Tim to capture some video footage and put together a weekend wrap up video to really help him promote his weekend in TCR Australia which he can use to hopefully drum up some extra interest as he looks to step up and do more rounds at that level in the future.

After the Shannons Nationals weekend, a number of our other customers also made the trip to Winton for the TCR Australia test day on the following Monday. So I hung around and work with them to create some content which they can now use to pitch to potential sponsors and drum up some extra support they look to step up to TCR in 2020.

It’s great to see so much interest in TCR amongst our regular customers, I’m really hoping that they can get the funding together to step up next year.

All in all, it was a big few days for the InSyde Media team, with Alek covering all the action at Sydney Master Blast on the same weekend.

Feel free to scroll through a small selection of my favourite photos from the Shannons Nationals round at Winton below as well as the video I put together for Tim. If your looking for photos from this event or any future events, be sure to get in touch.
