There really is no off-season at the tracks in California, but every Thunderhill track day really starts the night before as drivers from around Northern California pile into hotels in Willows.
As with all XX events, the weather was magically perfect throughout the entire day. With temperatures around 60 degrees and a warm dry track it was perfect conditions for new personal bests. Snowy Mount Lassen loomed in the background as we enjoyed the nice day.
A bit of fog did roll in before lunch, making for some great shooting conditions. While the dry days are nice, I do miss shooting in a light rain — the best photos always come from days with shoddy weather.
Despite the harsh light for most of the day, I still was able to grab a few of my favorite shots from the track this time around, partially thanks to a bit of dirt a wayward car brought dragged on.
Also thanks to a bunch of new (at least to me) gear I bought over the brief four-week off season between the last XX day of 2017 and the first day of 2018. Every lens I used at the track on Saturday was one I'd never shot with before.
I'm always looking to improve my work and push myself at the track; as such I'm putting together a feedback page where you can let me know your thoughts; what corners I should shoot but don't, and which ones I should just leave behind. A link will be available by the time I put the photo albums up.
As always, rolling shots at lunch were a good time too. This is one place the new lenses were really fun to play with, and I think I've made the right choice in my upgrades.
I also pulled Matt's FC aside for a few test shots with the new glass. I think I ought to start shooting more cars like this at future events; if you're interested, check my store for next months Laguna Seca pre-order, which is open now.
