The 19th running of Petit Le Mans was held at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, during the last week of September. This was the last race of the 2016 season for the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship and the end of an era for the Daytona Prototypes. The next few blogs will be recounting my experiences covering this endurance sports car race for the first time. First up is the team paddock set-up day and Continental Tire Sportscar Challenge practice session. Hope you like the photos.
IMSA returned to Lime Rock Park for the Northeast Grand Prix. The beautiful natural terrain track is about 1.5 miles in length and is situated in the Berkshire mountains in Lakeville, Connecticut.

ST class was won by Chad McCumbee and Stevan McAleer in the #5 ModSpace Mazda MX-5. Hope you like the photos. Continue reading “2015 – Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge at Lime Rock Park (Jul 25)”
At this time of year its natural to look back at what you have done, reflect on lessons learnt, be thankful for what you have, and look forward to next year. In some ways 2014 was the first year of my motorsports photography “apprenticeship”. I learnt a lot this year in terms of refining technique, seeing “light and shadows”, composition, and planning.

Here’s part one of my motorsports photography year. Hope you like the photos. Continue reading “2014 Sebring to Lime Rock Park – Part One of My Motorsport Photography Year”
