Spotlight – In the Paddock and Pits at the 2013 Nurburgring 24 Hrs (May 17)

Friday was the first day we went to the Nurburgring 24 Hrs and we spent the afternoon at Breidscheid, then the late afternoon I walked from the Quiddelback car park for 2 to 3 mile for more shots of the cars (https://dlymotorsportimages.com/2013/05/19/nurburgring-24-hrs-may-17). By the time I got back to the hotel I was very tired since it was a long day walking and shooting in the rain and mud, but it was worth it.

Spotlight – Lexus LFA at the 2013 Nurburgring 24 Hrs

I must admit before the Nurburgring 24 Hrs I had never heard of the Lexus LFA, guess I’ve been “living under a rock!” Then on our first day at the track I saw the Lexus LFA for the first time at the Breidscheid spectator area. A sleek looking car was quickly decelerating as it came down the steep hill in torrential rain, with its yellow headlights blazing (which always makes it difficult to get correct exposure, BTW) before turning sharply to the left, and accelerating down another hill, before climbing up a hill and shooting through a slight right-hand curve into the mountains. I thought to myself “wow” what a car. When I got back to the hotel I showed other guests the photos of this car, and they told me it was a Lexus LFA. I immediately did some research on the web about this car. Continue reading “Spotlight – Lexus LFA at the 2013 Nurburgring 24 Hrs”

Quick Blog – 2013 Nurburging 24 Hrs (May 20)

Got to bed at about 12.30 am last night, hence getting up today was hard, with my bodying aching with all the walking and carrying the camera gear over the last few days, but it has been great exercise. The race was restarted around 8 am, with the rain gradually getting lighter to overcast skies with periodic light showers. Got to the GP circuit part of the track (didn’t feel like going to the less accessible parts of the track due to the wet conditions, mud, and traffic) around 11.30 am, which gave us about 5 hours for photography.
