I meant with what seems to be our skills at shooting motor sports like this we can sweep the industry and go from there...

Great work as always John! I look forward to another ALMS season, both for the racing and your excellent photography!

BTW, that P1 Acura is a mean looking thing. How did it go?

Great shots, not into this style of racing. But the shots are awesome. I'd say i expect 1,3 and 5 to be in a calender or magazine.

Good to see acura cars in there. I was worried that the rumors of Acura pulling out (not sure if Audi did pull out from P1 this year) were true. Did you catch any of the Acura LMP1 cars out there or did they scrap that program? I root for honda and was planning on taking my cousing out to Lagina Seca this year.

Great photos however. Brilliant colors.

Uh.... there are four pictures here of Acura LMP1 cars. This was the public unveiling. The Patron car (head-on) is the P1. As is the detail shot of the wing. The two head shots of Gil de Ferran are in the XM Satellite P1 cars. The shot of Adrian Fernandez is the updated P2 car.

Audi, at this point, will only compete at Sebring with the new R15.

There are on-track shots of the Acura LMP1 car here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=638494

Thanks for clearing that up. I missed the P1 on that completely. Was responding to rumors that after Audi pulled out of P1 and Honda ditched F1 that Acura would follow suit and pull out from Alms completely. Thanks for the photos and the clarifications. Your shots vary from great to stunningly beautiful!.

I'll go now and read up on the state of ALMS for this year. Looks like one more trip to seca for me this year!
