Quick Blog – 2013 Nurburgring 24 Hrs (May 18)

Another great day of photographing. This time took the Gastehaus Fuchsrochre shuttle bus to the Brunnchen spectator area, which is a great spot to photograph the cars as they exit the corner, come down a steep hill, then zoom along a short straight, before entering and exiting another corner.

We then walked down past the Wipperman area, to the Caracciola-Karussell for some great photographer opportunities. Was lucky enough to get access to some of the elevated scaffolding that was erected by fans which gave great views of the track over the catch fencing. Also, the sun came out in the afternoon, which gave some great light for photographing the cars and the track.
