Question for you, Shark.
Is this your job? Or do you just go to the track as often as you can?
Pit passes or just allowed to wander? Seems like too much fun. :)
I get all glassy eyed, any time I hear a well tuned motor, with more than a 100 horses.
I'd probably die from over exposure to revving or eyes full of aerodynamic shapes. LOL

I'm going to take the compliment, thanks! I don't shoot motor sports for a living. I'm just enjoying myself and pushing to take the best photos possible.

My access to the cars and the action is generally limited. I've never had the advantage (pleasure) of carrying media credentials. I shoot from hillsides, through fences, anywhere I can find a good opening. I compare my results with the pros who get published; I try to keep up with them. Sometimes I get my hands on a garage pass, if they're cheap. This year, at the Indycar Race in Sonoma, the track officials would not let me on the grid before the race with my garage pass. So I walked down to the far end and talked to another official; he let me in. Sometimes you get lucky.

Most of the time, the road course events held at Sonoma Raceway and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca allow fans access to the paddock area. I usually find something interesting to shoot if I work hard enough.

Thanks, man.
I've been curious about that. Lucky dog. :)
New camera due here today, No motorsports for a few months, but maybe I can bundle up, and get some pics of luge runners, once we get some real snow. They should move fast enough to try panning and shooting.
And this camera has a view finder, instead of just an LCD.
No big time equipment, just a great deal on a long zoom point and shoot. Still worried about whether I just tossed a couple $100 away. LOL
