Auto Slalom Training with PCN and The Subaru Impreza Club

Marius and I went auto slaloming last sunday as we’ve been doing several weekends this year, and as usual I shot a collection of photos for my flickr page. And as what has now become a tradition, I’ll post to the blog with my selection of the best shots and the videos we shot. You can see the complete photoshoot over at flickr.

The next image was shot with the camera attached to the back of the car, running at auto shoot with a fresh memory card inside. The camera was locked to the “GO GO GO!” mode with an external switch, and I triggered the first image as I got into the car. The effect was quite good, looking forward to doing a few more shots this way with more interesting exposure times.

The final shot shows the camera setup for the outboard video, which can be seen in the first video clip below. The position is quite shaky as the camera is attached to the very front of the car, but it’s a dramatic angle. I’ll see if we can do something about those vibrations for later.

The best run of the day:

A few mishaps which we caught on tape:

This is probably the last run of the season, so I guess I’ll be back with more auto slalom and racing related posts as soon as the ice and snow disappears in april. Looking forward to it already!

Trackday with NSK at Rudskogen (26th of July 2008)

While I was working today, Marius and Eirik spent some time at Norsk Sportsvogn Klubb’s trackday at Rudskogen. I joined them after finishing up the usual saturday routine, and got the opportunity to snap a few shots before calling it the day. We even managed to get a small spin captured on the cam after a car spun the previous round and left some fluids in a corner. Video included!

A few pictures:

Tomorrow we’re heading out for auto slalom again, so I’ll try to get a few shots online tomorrow night too.
