Formula E - Valencia E-Prix 2021 Round 5 and Round 6 2021
Photo Location: Valencia, Spain, Europe 
Posted By: red5isalive, 05-02-2021, 03:29 AM

Hi again, its me the motorsport guy from Europe xDDD

So in that very profilic week of motorsport I was able to join the Electric Racing that Formula E is, for their 7th Season Races 5 and 6 in Valencia located at Circuito Ricardo Tormo.
Usually Valencia and Spain are sunny, but we have had a week of rain and so the first day of racing was pooring rain,

But nothing the coating of the Pentax lenses and Cameras can't work with!
Again my setup has been K3 (Silver) + K3-II and Sigma 100-300mm F4, Pentax DA* 50-135mm f2.8 (a weapon on those very hard conditions of day one) and Sigma 17-50mm f2.8

I have (as with the other 2 topics) posted already in the Spanish Forum but wanted to share the images here also,



















Cheers,

Let me add some images of Race 6 done on Sunday the same weekend.
Those images are from Qualyfing,






















Cheers,

And some images about Sunday's Race 6 Race itself:

Pre-Race Grid images



















Those images are taken from outside the grid so if you see some grey-ish colour it is due to the fences :S

And now for Race 6 action itself

The Julius Bar/DEN/Magna car all by itself at speed - blurred background yet car is sharp - that shot is a keeper! I also like the tall laughing/smiling Mahindra driver shot.

Yes DEN (actually) was the pole seater on day 2 (Race 6 of Season 7) and also the winner of it.
The Mahindra drivers had a diverse racing on both cars. The one shot you like I also do, its a spontaneous moment where he and former F1 driver Karun Chandock where having a talk on the grid pre-racing also for Race 6 of Season 7 (or also known as Sunday race xD)

Yes my friend was there in 2019and spent a week there. He thought it would be a massive thing there expecting Formula E events everyday everywhere and I think he told me he felt quite misserable. Also he thought he'd be the one photographer and he'll became rich (which to me its Fantasy) but yeah..... he was there and told me it was a great venue.

For me travelling to HK with not many business aspirations for a weekend only is too far away just to be there 2 days unfortunatelly.

Yeah Formula E is quite getting bigger and better. On my personal thoughts I believe there is still a long way to go to be as atractive as Formula 1 was on its top seasons, but we have to remember F1 also was starting back in the 1930s - 1950s, so maybe we are living something interesting.

They really carved out a good section of road for the race. The sounds the car made zipping around the track (they were testing) was pretty interesting as well.

If no business in HK then best you could do is try and treat it like a long layover transiting somewhere else.

I think there are lots of variables that can make the racing interesting

Yes the sound is fun.
True! I might think it that way next time.

Not much about the lace up gators and knickers but just a picture I see sometime and had the time to try to do myself, so I thought I would while they where doing a one minute of silence for Adrián Campos who passed away and was from Valencia.

Thanks yes! I mean the K3-III is great for sports and you can see my topic about when I used it in the following event of Formula E in Montecarlo a month later here in the same subforum in this topic:
