Retrospective – 2014 PWC practice at the Utah GP (September 12)

For the Friday morning practice session went to Turns 22 and 23 so could get shots of the cars with the beautiful mountains in the background and as they entered the front straight or the pit lane entrance. The early morning light was great. Hope you like the photos.
