MSV's top ten photos of 2017

Sunday, December 31 2017

MSV's circuits have hosted their fair share of memorable moments in 2017, and we've picked out ten of our favourite captures to illustate another year at the circuits. 

We're lucky to receive thousands of photos every year, taken at all of our circuits and at the vast majority of our events. Whether it's club racing for honour, or international GT competition, and as ever we've been astonished at the quality on show. 

Here are ten of our favourites from 2017, in chronological order:

1. Celebrating Mandy Scott at Brands Hatch (Gary Hawkins)
