Towards the end of last year, the kids and I were invited up to the Hemel Radio Control Car Club for a mornings racing. We didn’t really have any suitable cars but we decided to go along to see what it was like, taking the HPI Bullet and the Tamiya Hotsho along to try them on the track. To cut a long story short, all of us really enjoyed it and before long we had a pair of second hand Team Associated B64s which were much more suitable than the Bullet or the Hotshot. The racing is every other Sunday morning which we managed to get along to fairly often.

This last Sunday I decided to take my Nikon DSLR along and to try and get some pictures. The track mostly covered by trees and the sun wasn’t playing ball so the light was a bit touch and go, but despite that my 18-200mm managed some fairly passable shots for a first attempt. I’ll definitely try again at another meeting, maybe taking the 80-200 next time, figuring the 2.8 aperture will help with the lack of light.

The best of the set are shown below.
