Ferrari Challenge comes to VIR

  1. I spent all yesterday at Virginia Intl Raceway for the awesome Ferrari Challenge event, including the Shell Historic Challenge featuring vintage Ferrari/Alfa Romeo race cars. It will take me a while to process all the photos from the Challenge race, but here are some of the historic race cars, enjoy!

    The astute observer will notice in the previous 2 photos, the driver is counter-steering to keep the car straight after exiting the 'oak tree' turn :)

    And here is one of the Challenge race itself:

    it was also interesting to note that the vast majority of serious amateur photogs were shooting Nikon :)

    I shoot atleast 2-3 auto events a month for various websites/magazines. The number of Nikons is now starting to outnumber the grey lenses i see with media credentials. It's crazy considering how it was even just a year ago.


    Gorgeous shots btw....I almost went to that event but I was at Road Atlanta for the Formula Drift event.
     
  3. Very nice I have never had an oppurtunity to shot a racing event
