Went to the drags held on the Casino Airstrip by The Northern Rivers Drag Racing Inc on Sunday . There specifically to get pics of the Ford but got a few of others that caught my eye . A brilliant concept helping " keep it off the streets " .

Went up to Morgan Park for the first time to have a look at some old clunker motorbike racing . Bottom line , looks like a great track to race on especially the "full " circuit but the spectator areas have been forgotten with the track extension . Spectators CANT access it and in most parts cant even see the new circuit from existing areas. A fellow new Canon user found me so we had a play around the bridge for an hour or so and then I came home . Next venue will be Lakeside for the Lord of the Lake in September so here is hoping "spectators" can see the whole track from Spectator Areas. Whinge over .
A few photos are in an album on Holtys Photos Facebook page if you are interested .
For those that dont already know I sometimes go and take a few photos of the NCRRs race days currently held at Lismore Kart Club Lismore NSW , on the Kart Track at Mountainview Grafton and twice this year at Oakburn Park Tamworth . Sometimes called "bucket racing" where you race ( or ride ) approved motorbikes up to 500cc in certain classes covering ages from 7 to 67 ( Oldest I have met so far ) on Kart Tracks with speeds less than 100 kph . Why ? great for some people to keep their eye and reflexes in or of more importance , a great training ground for any budding road racers or just for kids to learn how to ride their bikes on asphalt .
And it would be somewhat amiss of me not to throw in a few "happy snaps" of incidents I like or made me laugh from the last event I was at . There is a LOT of that with these guys and girls and that is the main reason I follow them . Holty...
Went up to the Willowbank Raceway on the 29th and 30th of April for the Nostalgia Drags to see if I could get some twilight pics if possible .. . The album is on Holtys Facebook page as usual and on the website HERE . April 2017 Nostalgia Drags Photos

Went up to Toowoomba for a few days in April to photograph the 2017 Austin 7 National Tour . My aim was to get photos of them "out and about " the district rather than in static displays unless I found them at locations with period correct backgrounds .
Of more importance to ALL the entrants especially Non Facebook users ALL the photos at a higher resolution and better quality will be on the Holtys Photos website HERE . Remember to "click" on your photo to enlarge it BEFORE you download it or Just ask your grandkids to do it for you ....
Looked forward to this and yes , I got a haircut for the occasion .
