The Tudor United Sports Car Championship (TUSCC) qualifying session was held late Friday afternoon. The #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP qualified with a best time of 1:14.790 and top speed of 94.729 mph. For GTLM class, the #25 BMW Team RLL BMW Z4 GTE topped the charts with a time of 1:17.268 and speed of 91.691 mph. It was a wonderful afternoon for photography under some beautiful late afternoon light. Hope you like the photos.
Started the session at the Turn 11 hairpin for close shots of the cars going through this part of the circuit. Here’s, Richard Lietz or Jörg Bergmeister exiting this hairpin corner in the #912 Porsche North America Porsche 911 RSR.
I know this photo is a bit “artsy”, but wanted to really emphasize the speed of the car and how close they got to the safety wall as they accelerated out of Turn 11. Top GTLM qualifier, Bill Auberlen or Dirk Werner in the #25 BMW Team RLL BMW Z4 GTE at 1/50th of a sec.
