Retrospective – 2014 Honda Indy Toronto (July 18 to 20)

Was a busy motorsport photography year. Because of this, I missed posting photo stories for some of the Indy Car Series races. The next couple of posts will be on the races I missed posting. First up is the Honda Indy Toronto. Hope you like the photos.

2014 Toronto (#25 Andretti Autosport)The race was held on the streets at Exhibition Place in Toronto Canada. The street circuit is 11 turns and is about 1.8 miles in length. For the Friday practice session photographed the cars on the outside of Turn 10. This was a great location to shoot from since you could get shots of the cars coming into and through the “S” corner, then exiting into the short Turn 10 to 11 straight. Here’s Marco Andretti in the #25 Andretti Autosport exiting Turn 10 (Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, 200mm, f/8, 1/1000, ISO 100)
