Luiz Garcia

 

 (left click on image to go to next image in series)

 

Although Luiz started in the second to last poll position and failed to finish the race, this is perhaps my best image and was taken at Friday's warm-up session. 

Traveling 140 MPH+ , the car is tact sharp and the wheels blurred.  The foreground is solid green without visible barriers.  One degree to the rear of the car is a concrete bridge, one degree in front are signs.  Due to the high degree and accuracy of panning required, this is one of only a couple of successful images from this position.  Note the visual clearance between the car body and the track.  Taken with a 500 mm lens on a monopod at a shutter speed of 1/800th of a second at F4.

The image was captured at the top of Thunder Valley on other side of bridge (1-1 on map).
