A few pictures taken at a recent Renault race meet at the Silverstone circuit in the UK

All taken with a K10D and Sigma 70-300mm

Two Formula Renault Eurocup cars moments after they touched (you can see some body work flying off to the rear if the cars)

A 2007 Renault R27 F1 car driven by Roman Goujeans

A 1983 Renault RE40 F1 car originally driven by World champion Alain Prost but today driven by Rene Arnoux

Thanks for looking comments welcome

Sweet. Great Pictures.

How close did you crop these down? I'm just wondering how close you actually got to the action. :-)

Lovely shot and quite nostalgic. All the more since I have been a fan of Renault's sport division ever since they supplied engines for Williams. And I'm only 20 years old.

Prost's car looks so short and stumpy compared to Formula 1's latest offerings.

On a completely offtopic note, "prost" means stupid in Romanian.

Thanks for the replies.

The pictures are no more than 50% cropped. The FE40 is almost 100%. I was sat in the Luffield A stand which is about 60ft away from the action.

Picture 1 was taken at 93mm

Picture 2 was taken at 170mm

Picture 3 was taken at 300mm

The R27 was a nightmare to photograph as it was so quick. I'm back at Silverstone on the 26th for the Fomula 1 Test session so watch this space for more ;-)
