Hello everyone. I have so much going on that I have unfortunately neglected the site a little. It’s far easier to update social media pages such as Facebook and Youtube and reach a wider audience much quicker, but I will try to put some time and energy back into this going forward. I’ve conducted some quick website maintenance, uploaded a track day video from Japfest 2017 to my Race Video page, along with a new karting video recorded a couple of days ago as well. I’ll try to get any missing galleries added soon.

I’ve recently noticed an issue with the site not displaying correctly, due to a compatibility issue with the latest version of WordPress and the theme I use. That’s now been fixed! Sorry for any issues you may have experienced whilst using the website.
Back in February 2016, I attended a Team Sport karting circuit in Crawley along with 11 friends to take part in a 15 minute practice / qualifying session, followed by a 15 minute race. Video evidence from my helmet camera has finally made it’s way to Youtube, which you can watch on this site, or on my Youtube channel, where you can like, share and comment on the action. If you would like me to race in any events you are hosting, or participating in, then please get in touch!

It has been a pretty quiet year this year when it comes to attending shows, I just haven’t had the time.. but there’s one show I won’t miss and that’s JAE! It came up quick and the 4 day event flew past like it was a one day show! I went around with my camera taking photos of cars that caught my eye, which you can see over on my 2016 galleries page. If you wish to leave comments, or share them with your friends, then check them out on my Facebook page instead! http://www.facebook.com/alanarnoldphotography. Don’t forget to give the page a like if you haven’t already! Enjoy the photos.
Photos from the 2016 Horsham Piazza Italia X event have now been uploaded to here and onto Facebook, where you can like, share and comment on each image. Visit my page at http://www.facebook.com/alanarnoldphotography to get involved!
Japfest 2 takes place at Rockingham this Sunday 16th August, and i’ll be attending again in my Starlet Glanza V. Track time is booked for around 10:30am, so keep an eye out for me on track. If you want me to photo your car at this event, make sure you message me in advance and i’ll do my best to snap you, otherwise, please pop back on here, or my Facebook page, a day or two after the event to view the photos! Cheers, Alan
Hello all, another quick update to say that photos from this years Japshow event are now live. Head over to the 2015 galleries page to see them, or click on the Facebook link to the right which gives you the option to like, share, tag people and comment on each one. I’m still hoping to introduce that functionality here, but that requires quite a bit of work! The next event i’ll be at (apart from my Wedding in two weeks!) is Japfest 2 at Rockingham, in the middle of August, so I hope to see some of you guys there!
I’ve not posted in a while but a quick update for you all. I’ve missed some events this year due to other commitments, or issues with my car, but I’ve finally gotten around to adding three galleries from events I’ve attended in the past month. The first one was the Horsham Piazza Italia festival, which is a three day event over the Easter weekend in Horsham, featuring hundreds of Italian supercars and bikes. The next event was Incarnation in Brighton, held at Madeira Drive, featuring thousands of modified cars of all makes and models, with some real nice cars on display, and finally, Japfest returned to Castle Combe in May 2015. I stupidly forgot my SLR, but I managed to snap a few things on my iPhone which I have shared for you. I’ve also added a new video to the Race Video page, which is my session around Castle Combe. Feel free to leave comments here, or check out my Facebook page where the images are also shared, at www.facebook.com/alanarnoldphotography – enjoy
After a 3am start and 6 hours driving to and from Santa Pod, and over 1000 photos later, I am starting to recover from Japshow Finale at Santa Pod. It was a brilliant show, quiet in comparison to the last time I went a few years back, but still a brilliant day. I was invited along by Total Jap, parking my Glanza on their club stand, along with my friend Will in his Corolla AE92. The track featured some very quick cars, including a jet engined Mini Cooper, an 8 Second Subaru Impreza and the Santa Pod jet car, or funny car. I’ve seen the jet car before, but the noise and speed impresses you every time you see it go. Your ears also get destroyed in the process! It managed 276mph in 5 seconds, just a bit quicker than what my Glanza can do. Photos coming soon.
So my JAE 2014 photos are now live! Had such a brilliant weekend and for those of you that have considered going but not done so, then GO!!! It’s amazing. I’ve shared them all on my photography page on Facebook too, and the likes / notifications are going quite crazy. You can check out my Facebook page here. Enjoy the photos, and I’ll see you guys at Japshow Finale at Santa Pod, in October.
