Raidilon from a new angle

Posted: 02 Sun Jun 2013 Sam Ingles

The sun rises on the third and final day of the WSR here in Belgium. Sunshine is very pleasant sight as I finish my coffee and fresh croissants; It means I won’t be spending the best part of my evening drying out my clothes again.

I was lucky enough to shoot the famous Raidilon corner from a very unique angle today. This corner is often mistaken for Eau Rouge which is in fact the stream the track crosses before being launched up into the sweeping left-hander (Raidilon.) This being a favourite for fans and drivers a like, as it is a real test of skill. For this reason the corner itself is a red zone, meaning photographers cannot photo from it. Today I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to shoot the corner from a completely new angle, above. Renault had in place a crane which held a platform in the air for spectators to watch the race from. Fortunately I was allowed up on to it to photograph from!
