The team from Automotive Event Images headed up to Sandown raceway for Round 12 of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship Sandown 500..
We had a busy few days and this round saw the running of the annual Retro round and the first round of the PIRTEK Enduro Cup with the Co Drivers taking the wheel for this, the first of the three event series, so there was plenty of Retro Liveries and on track entertainment to photograph...
On the card was an action packed weekend of racing , the Supercars having four practice sessions, Armor all Qualifying , two Race for the Grid 20 lap events, a 20 minute warmup followed but the much anticipated 161 lap Sandown 500.
Also on the card was the Dunlop Super 2 Series, the ECB super Utes, the Toyota 86 racing series and the Touring Car masters all braving the harsh blustery and windy conditions.In between races the HotWheels stunt team the Matt Hall Aerial display, the showtimeFX and the Aussie bandit keeping the huge crowd entertained..Although the weather was not kind to all on Saturday with Melbourne turning on high winds, sleet & hail, Sunday proved a glorious day and the stage was set for the 161 laps.
