Dionysus Hillclimb (the X-Pro2 does motorsports, with the 50-140mm and 1.4X TC) | Vassilios Zacharitsev

After almost 40 years, an historic Greek racecar event returned to the calendar. Organized by the racing club ELLADA, this hillclimb took place last weekend (23-24 of April) and gathered more than 100 participants, in several categories. Tools of the trade: the X-Pro2 with the XF 50-140mm f/2.8 and the XF 1.4X TC. I was particularly excited to see racing cars, like the ones I used to have on posters on my room as a kid. Escorts, Alfas, old BMWs and other historic cars shared the demanding route with more modern racers. Drivers and mechanics enthusiasm was high and shared with a whole lot of spectators, taking advantage of the excellent weather to watch the race. Some of these people walked two or three kilometers to find a spot with good visibility and prospect for thrilling spectacle. Organizers did a fine job with the race, and I really hope, in one year time, I will once again wake up at 6 a.m. to pack up my gear for the mountain…….
