Cadwell Park Circuit

For this outing consider taking a 70-200 mm lens or longer to capture the action on the track.   if you have a wide angle lens this may be useful in case you get really close to the action or for walking round the pit area, where the telephoto lens may be too long.

Cara sharing may be a good idea.
