Historic Festival 34 at Lime Rock Park

What was a 5 day weekend full of bewildered street beasts, unfortunately funneled in one hearty day filled with the smell of race fuel and seared rubber.  Between auction and magazine shoots I was able to squeeze this spectacular event into my busy schedule.

Upon arriving at Lime Rock Park a scenic track nestled in the mountains of Lakeville Connecticut I headed down to Paddock A to see what cars would be tearing up the asphalt this time around.  My mindset for this event was to capture images for my blog but more or less give people an inside scoop of what its like to be a trackside photographer.  Facebook live has been beneficial to others as they are able to see the races from a view that only one with a professional status would be able to see.  Many people wanted to attend but had other obligations they had to do, so I was able to give them the inside scoop.

Throughout the day Wayne, Shawn and I moved from one location to the other depending on the lighting of the track.  While forgetting my monopod at home my arms were weakening as I was holding up a heavy lens the 105-600mm.  I came home with more than necessary slightly blurry shots than I wanted to.  Blur is something that I have a hard time with and is not in my vocabulary.

The experience was something I have never encountered which was when the American Muscle group was at hand and having them rip by me, some of them sideways up over the hill screaming in my ear sending bits of rubber and dirt in my face.  Ohhhh so that’s why other photographers were wearing ear plugs.    It was great to shoot alongside Ed Hyman at the flag station.  All in all it made for a great Saturday and I am already looking forward to next years event.
