Hands E-M1X on at Brands Hatch

Long time no post! We have access to a BTC: British Touring Car warm up day on:

March 27th at Brands.

The idea is for those seriously thinking about E-M1X to try one out in a challenging environment.

There are limited places available so please let me know if your are interested.

Depending on numbers I may need to filter but if it is a day you can make, why not try and join us.


FYI We do plan other events around the country over the next few months so with luck there will be other chances but this is the first.


I look forward to hearing from you


Regards to all


Mark

Welcome back, Mark. This is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of getting an E-M1X, grab it whilst you have the chance!

Re: Hands E-M1X on at Brands Hatch

I can’t make TPS or the Brands Hatch event, so double disappointment.

The icing on the cake would be if you could get a ride in a car with the M1X on board taking action shots.

Now there’s a challenge for you Mark...

Re: Hands E-M1X on at Brands Hatch

Working through comments so far:


- we will have weekend options in different locations soon and will aim to put up at www.enjoy.photo which links to the Image Space events section


- Ride in car - noted - may come down to insurance or lack of passenger seat in race cars but we will figure


- Northern ireland noted


More soon

Very interested in principle, but unfortunately have a Management booking on the 27th which would risk divorce if missed...
