A few pics I took from the Indy Car race in St. Pete, Florida last Sunday from the grandstands and a gap in the fence near the last turn.

I only brought the 300mm f/4 and the D200. I really wish I had brought my monopod because trying to pan handheld is pretty hard!

Brand Recognition at 133MPH (clocked by a racefan with a radar gun in this turn. The Honda Accord Hybrid pace car clocked in at 80mph through this turn during the yellow flags!)

Very well done, did you have a special pass to get a clear shot or was this a street race. I was at the Miami Homestead race before this one and could not get a clear shot with out a fence being in the way.

Nicely done Courtland. I really like what looks to be bumped-up contrast in these shots - would be overdone on a lot of subjects but looks good here.

Courtland well done I realy like the first one. I have been a Helio fan since first came on the champ car scene. Have'nt been much of a IRL fan though. But since they have started turning right lately it is getting better. :biggrin:

do you have any more of the drift demo pics? I was there with the two maxxis cars (black/orange). I had my d200 with 80-200 but was stuck shooting through two fences!!!

Nice shots. I love the sound these things produce... music to my ears :smile:


Beautiful B-25 as well... surprised they got her out for the race. Cool to see though...
