Mayhem or Mav are you guys aware if you can access the inside of the track? What I mean by that is not inside fencing (unless accredited) but walking or driving up from say the paddock campground to get photos from a different perspective etc.

Yes mate, Inside of T1, a bit of mountain straight, and the inside of the chase all accessible. On top of pits also accessible.

Thanks mate. I'm assuming right at the top of the mountain isn't? Just trying to work on a game plan for the whole weekend etc and as you know try and get shots that others haven't or have thought of etc.

BRP, there are good shots to be had at the top. The highest point is probably McPhillamy into Skyline, and there are places where safety fences don't interfere, or only offer minimal interference, without having accreditation for the "best" side of the fence. Here are a couple from over the years ...
The Erebus Merc is at the Esses, where they have now started going downhill.
The 3 Bentleys are at the start of the Esses, just around from Skyline.
There are plenty of opportunities for pan shots with varying backgrounds.
Climbing down from the Dipper, Forrest's Elbow offers a range of different angles to shoot from.
Unfortunately, safety fencing has taken away the head on shot climbing up at Reid Park with the Bathurst farms down below, and I think the Michelin sign is out of play for us too, now. Unless Mr Mayhem knows of a narrow gap to position yourself in!

Unfortunately, after 6 years straight, it looks like I won't be there this year.

Unfortunately two of those great pics from Mikey aren't possible anymore, as there are no gaps in the fencing from Reid to around McPhillamy, not even for accredited photographers despite protestations when the fence first went up from the pro guys. The necessity for that fence is bit of a mystery to me, but its there now... You can position yourself at the beginning of Reid, just near the flag marshal point, but its still not possible to get that classic shot with the now Fujitsu sign (used to be Michelin) and the town of Bathurst in the background like in Mikeys example,

As you guessed BRP, the inside of the track isnt accessible anywhere except around the lower part of the circuit near the paddock.

Thank you mate. I thought as much. Which is a shame as I reckon there are some great spots you could get some awesome photos from a different perspective.

Yep, 100%, but saying that, you're only limited by your imagination at Mount Panorama, theres a million different angles and possibilities. :)

An update for the Dipper.

Since the Mega crash from last years 12 Hour with the Always Evolving Nissan R35 the organisors have installed tire barriers on the outside wall to prevent serious damage to cars if something like that were to happen again. I initially thought this wouldn't change anything in terms of photo quality but since I went to last years Bathurst 1000 the dipper is ruined for taking photos.

The tire wall is actually higher than the concrete wall so the holes in the fence are pointless because all you can shoot is mainly tire wall. Unless anyone is prepared to climb the fence and hang on whilst shooting, its much more difficult to shoot the dipper.

I certainly hope this is tongue-in-cheek lol.

I know because I was hanging on one hand on the fence and the other holding the camera. Looked so stupid and I wasn't even worth it lol!

That stinks. The dipper's one of my favourite places to snap race cars from.

Already given him a like. Stalked him getting ideas for the NSW Rally event being held in April at Oberon.

Keep up the great work Marty.

Question for the experienced guys. When it becomes really bright and sunny do you guys use neutral density filters?

Just preparing everything I need for the weekend.

CPL filter. You need to buy yourself a high quality CPL filter. Best decision you'll ever make.

Thanks mate. Done karting only in bright daylight but always looking to get better and have better looking shots.

I'll look into it.
