Sandown had all the makings of a blockbuster weekend – awesome looking cars, sweet retro kit and bright sunshine on race day. But with some dodgy qualifying and two flat tyres, the dream suddenly unraveled before our eyes. It may be painful, but let’s cast said eyes back over the weekend and our top 10 favourite snaps.
The Triple Eight fam looked on point for the Sandown 500 retro round. Even if we say so ourselves!
The heavens opened to leave Friday’s three practice sessions pretty much useless.
The return of the retro flat cap meant Jamie was all too keen to get his pose on.
Not only did Matty Campbell absolutely kill it behind the wheel, he’s pretty damn humble too.
Those Sandown kerbs don’t make for a smooth ride.
You’d better believe it, folks, that’s a real smile from RD caught on camera.
Movember came early
Dutto took the retro look to a whole new level with this questionable facial hair. Sadly (or not, depending on which side of the fence you’re sitting) he bailed on Sunday and it was off before the race.
In case you couldn’t tell, this was taken on Friday. When it rained. A lot.
Driver changes mean one thing – it’s enduro season! The drivers have to be flexible anyway, but with the new leg protection they pretty much become human pretzels to get in and out of the car at speed.
Well, that blows
Okay, this isn’t one of our favourite memories, but it’s a good photo. Let’s just leave it at that.
