Photographing motor sport normally requires a long telephoto lens because of saftey concerns.
However, Speedway at Sandy Point, Oreti Park, is the exception, with its raised concrete walls, topped off with a fence allowing the crowd up close to the action.
So, with the average family camera you should be able to obtain good action pics. But take ear plugs.
Here are some of my favourite pics from the Speedway night during the Burt Munro Challenge earlier this month.
Cheers and Merry Xmas. John H
