Re: Mini Challenge #632: Motorsports

Thanks - fun challenge. My primary shooting gear for racing is a crop sensor Nikon, but I would always carry my RX100 which was my wide angle lens to avoid changing lenses on a DSLR in dusty windy environments....  Most of the below are from various vintage races at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI.

Entry:  Late 90s Benetton F1. Just past pedestrian bridge front straight Road America. 145 mph w/ 3 gears and 2000 feet of straight before turn 1....High speed panning is skill and a lot of luck. Happy w/ this one.

Entry: Two Vettes - Turn 5 at Elkhart Lake. Applied a slight split tone after desaturation. The guy in the split window was fast!

Entry:  c'mon - I've got 2 more cylinders than that guy..... Exit of Turn 6 Elkhart Lake.

The rest of these are for fun....

Italian car show downtown St. Paul.

Jordan F1. Normally aspirated V10, probably good for 800 HP at who knows, 17,000 RPM.

Velocity stacks on a Shadow CanAm. Less elegant than previous engine, but equally effective.

Torque!  Shadow CanAm - Was a joy to watch, hear, and feel these (there were 2 racing that weekend). First rate preparation with drivers who knew their stuff.

Blown pre-war MG. Taken w/ RX100. Played around with desaturation and split toning.

When things go wrong. What happens when valves do a tap dance on a piston. Broken camshaft belt on a desmo Ducati
