After being on a hiatus from the photography world, I was very grateful to have been asked if I wanted to attend an amazing event as my comeback tour, organised by Snap-On Tools at Nissan Motorsports’ facility here in Melbourne. It has been many months since I have held my camera at all, let alone around fantastic cars and amazing people who share the same passion as I do. I was very excited by this as had the opportunity to see a few Nissan Altima V8 Supercars and Todd Kelly, the man who is behind one of four amazing machines.
Upon arrvival I was greeted by this lovely mockup of the Nissan Altima V8 Supercar. After having a quick view of the body and vinyl work of the car I couldn’t help but take a few more steps into the building to see the real deal.
Inside there were four Nissan Altima V8 Supercars altogether, two sporting Jack Daniel’s liveries and two more with the Norton Antivirus colours.
Every single perspective of the cars was just astonishing, the detail in the the bodywork just out of this world.
Before we were split up into different groups, ex-Holden Supercar driver Todd Kelly came to the front and gave us a quick speech on how he got involved with Snap-on Tools in his career and how Nissan Motorsports kicked off here in Australia.
In the engineering department lay a completed V8 Nissan engine. Once again, the detail in the heart of the machine was just amazing.
Of course, nothing but the best for the team to get their hands greased up and dirty with.
Have you ever wondered what the skeleton of the Nissan Altima V8 Supercar looks like? Here it is about 10 weeks before the whole car is completed.
Body being molded, then off to the booth for a good spray treatment.
Snap-on Tools show bags were given out towards the end of the night for everyone.
I would like to give Snap-on Tools and Nissan Motorsports a big thank you for having me over for such an amazing event, I cannot wait to see the beautiful racecars out on the racetrack again.
