Locking Brakes

 

Getting the great action shot at a race takes a tremendous amount of preparation and luck.  The professional CART photographer is generally better prepared to be in the right place at the right time.    

Since I am only able to attend a few races per year, I have to focus attention on a few types of shots I have a better chance of achieving.  These include close-ups of tires lifting off the tarmac, unique pan shots, and as the case at left, a driver locking his brakes at the beginning of qualifying.   

The image was captured at the bottom of the Moraine Sweep at turn 5  (2-1 on  map).
