ALMS Northeast Grand Prix Shots

IMG_0942I recently posted my best raw shots from the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix. The race was held on July 24, 2010 on a ridiculously hot day at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. Despite the weather, I really enjoyed the event because I was able to get really close to the track and really see the cars in action. I wish I had been there earlier to walk the open paddock while cars were still by the team trailers. ALMS also has an open grid so when the race cars first go out on track you can walk around before the race starts. I’ll have to plan my visit to the event better for next year.

Also due to my lack of planning, I was only using my kit 28-135mm lens to shoot. For past events (at least most PCA Club Races), I’ve been able to borrow a 70-200 L lens and I’ve enjoyed using that for the extra range, better image stabilization, and better optical quality. I attempted to rent one for this weekend, but I quickly discovered trying to rent one of Canon’s most popular lenses for the weekend on a Friday afternoon doesn’t work to well. I made due with the equipment I had and was able to get some good shots. Check out the album.
