We are driven to the circuit every day, its a lot safer I think. We wake to find its is raining and windy. We also tested the air quality and found it to read 130. 100 is the max level.
We get to the circuit to find the rain has stopped and it is brightening up good news.
Its going to be a long day but as there is so much going on, the day goes really quickly. My first job is to photograph the fans who have turned up early.
Wow the Chinese love their motor racing.
To get to the gate we were able to use the underground tunnel under the massive grandstand, this saved a lot of time.
Next up Autograph Session
More processing then back out for the Grid Walk and a festive of colour dancing dragons and drummers.
Grid Walk closes at 10:51 the race starts at 11:00 I need to be at the end of the straight to capture the rolling start and start of the 6 hour race. I tend to leave the grid in time to get my destination.
We tend to 1 hour before the end of the race to head for the pits to capture the teams and photograph the trophies.
Capture some cars on the straight

Well done to Toyota Racing Anthony Davidson, Sebastien Buemi for winning the 6 hour Shanghai race.
In the morning we drive back to the airport and I take photographs of the surrounding area on my iPhone 5S. It all seems to be high raised buildings, power lines.
We get to the Pu Dong Airport, Shanghai
