Photo Gallery: Supercars – Bathurst 1000 – 2021
What will make the 2021 season stand out for me??… The one of a kind events that were born out of necessity to meet commercial obligations and get the season done.
There was no more extreme example of that than this years Repco Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama. I mean 6 days of on-track action (not to mention the day and a half of pre-event commitments), 10 categories, rival title sponsors making room for each other… It just wouldn’t have ever happened in any other year, not even 2020.
It’s not something that any other national-level sport would have ever had to face either. And it was great to see the whole motorsport community rally together to finish the year on a high!
As you can imagine, Bathurst was a massive undertaking. Especially off the back of an exhausting 4 week schedule at Sydney Motorsport Park that also included separate trip to Mount Panorama for Challenge Bathurst Photos.
I’m no stranger to doing back to back events. But the intensity of trying to achieve so much in a very small window, not only to get the business back on track but also deliver high-quality work during these final events was a big effort. Let’s just say InSyde Media is open to caffeine/energy drink partnerships for season 2022!
However, the Bathurst is a special place and everyone, myself included, steps it up another level. Especially for the Bathurst 1000. So we rallied!
The rain held off, the campgrounds filled up and the Great Race provided a fabled tale for the history books. It was a great event all around.
Beyond the racing, Gen3 was officially launched! It was good to be able to get up close and take a detailed looking into the future of the top tier of the sport here in Australia. Can’t wait to see how it develops over the next 12 months as we work towards a competition debut in 2023.
Canon Australia even came out to the circuit to let us test out the latest and great gear, notably the new R3. Needless to say, an order has already been placed for some new gear that should help step up the quality of images and speed up our workflows next season.
A special shout out to the InSyde Media customers that wrapped up titles over the course of the Bathurst 1000 week.
- Aaron Cameron – Tasman Series Winner (S5000) – also TCR Australia Runner-Up.
- Nathan Herne – Trans Am National Series Champion – Special mention to Eden Thornburrow and Tim Brook who also finished second and third.
- Broc Feeney – Super2 Series Champion
- Nash Morris – Super3 Series Champion
And that’s not to take away from all the other InSyde Media customers and their efforts throughout the year.
With that all said, here is a small sampling from the 36,000 photos I captured of the course of the week-long Bathurst 1000.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and we’ll be back refreshed and ready for a big 2022 season!
