ALMS Northeast Grand Prix 2011

IMG_1881Just like last year, I went to the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park, held on July 9, 2011 this year. I arrived early enough to walk around the open paddock to see all the teams’ set ups.  I also got to go out on the track for the open grid before the race, which was the closest I’d ever gotten to these cars that I’ve been watching on TV for a few years now.

While I stuck with my kit 28-135mm lens for the close-up shots of the cars on the grid, in the paddock, and at the Porscheplatz corral (specially reserved parking and tent for Porsche owners); I had a borrowed 70-200mm L to shoot the cars on the track. I got some decent shots but there was no single stand out photograph – I think I was enjoying the event more than focusing on taking pictures.
