HO­HEPA SMILER

NZ Performance Car - - Shot Of The Month -

HO­HEPA SMILER FROM H&H PRO­DUC­TIONS CAP­TURED THIS RB DUST STORM US­ING A PANA­SONIC LU­MIX DMCFZ50 CAM­ERA, EQUIPPED WITH A 55MM LENS AND MARUMI UV FIL­TER. THE CAM­ERA SET­TINGS WERE ISO 100, SHUT­TER SPEED 1/500 AND APER­TURE, F/5.6. The first thing that sprung to mind when look­ing at this photo was drift­ing up over the rise at Hamp­ton Downs turn three, a scene much more com­mon for a Lau­rel like this than the well-carved dirt track cap­tured here. But when its owner, Ray­mond Sut­ton, took the op­por­tu­nity to com­pete at an au­tocross run by the Nel­son Car Club in Wake­field, he proved you don’t need tar­mac to have some side­ways fun in your car. And best of all you will pick up some valu­able car-con­trol skills, while wear­ing the big­gest ear-to-ear smile.
