As this site has developed, most of the photographic content has found its way into the Features section - samples below. I've left the original Gallery content here though, and may even add to it at some point in the future.

Silverstone 2001 gave me the initial material for this page ... took hundreds of shots (until the battery died on the digital camera!) and the following is the pick of the crop, all taken during the Qualifying session on Saturday from the spectator banking at Club Corner.

The Thoroughbred Grand Prix which followed this year's British GP inspired me to dig out some of my old photos ... they're not quite as sharp, but they're my F1 history so I hope you'll forgive the fuzzy edges!

With Concorde taking to the skies for the first time since the Paris crash and the Red Arrows giving their customary pre-race display, someone recalled that they had once flown together ... I knew I had a picture of it somewhere, so thought I'd share that too!

Ready to go On track Proof I did it!
Me! in a 1994 Larrousse
with 3.5 litre Cosworth V8
Still me! Half-way through my stint,
starting to feel I can push a bit
My certificate ...
just to prove I did it!
