Retrospective – 2014 TUSCC Prototypes Qualifying on the Streets of Long Beach (April 11)

The qualifying session for the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship (TUSCC) series on the streets of Long Beach was held in the late afternoon. The low light and long shadows helped to create a lot of contrast on the track. Hope you like the photos.
