Default Ferrari Challenge

I went to the track around 90 min away and shot some Ferrari taking practice laps.

I got alot of blurry shots as it was my first time shooting car race as well as trying to learn panning.

A few decent shots out of many bad ones. I suck...need more practice.

the first two shots--especially the first--are very well done. i particularly like the way the cars fit compositionally with the background. Panning with a 300mm does take practice, but that's why they made so many Ferraris. Nicely done and i wish i'd been there to listen to the motors.

Thanks John,

You're right, panning with long lens is tough. I wonder how those guys did it so well with the 500mm

Oh yeah, the sound of those engines were awesome.

Some more static shots of the FXX

4. Oh.. some damage shots too ... an expensive body job.

Hey Sonny. I think I spent 75% of my time in the garages on Sunday. I really like #2 from the garage series. Man I love those doors...and the hoods...and spoilers...and tail lights...okay I need to stop...

Yeah Ben, those FXX are amazing vehicles. I didn't hear their engines on Friday but it must have been awesome.

I wasn't sure but I saw an old man there and someone said he's the owner of the FXX.

Chat a bit with the crew there and they are all Italian.

The FXX race was awesome. There were about 5 or 6 of them (can't remember) and they were L O U D!!! Good loud...grumbly, sputtery, growling loud. Especially in the garage during the tests, that was crazy.

Funny thing was I thought the FXX was supposed to be super rare, but they had enough to stage a race.

Stefan, it's Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. I think it used to be called Searspoint.

The FXX's are usually together. Its all a part of the program of ownership.

Great pics in this thread!
