 Driver/Sponsor Promotional shoot while I was there….

Part of my day was spent with racing driver Liam Sullivan & his team. I was there to take some Branding & Promotional photos for his sponsors Moto-Lita & Aviation Leathercraft. He will be competing this year in the Pre-66  Touring Cars driving a Mini Cooper S. Liam’s day sadly didn’t quite go to plan but I guess that’s what a Test Day is for, so it doesn’t happen on Race Day. You can read about the shoot & see more images by clicking here.
