If you listened to the weatherman all week long than you are probably one of several people who skipped out on CSCS opener this weekend in fear of rain which is a shame because outside of a few quick showers most of the event was actually dry.
The drag strip was busy most of the day (which I was surprised to see) and the road course saw heavy use by both the time attack drivers and the drifters.
Today’s coverage will begin on said course, for this round of CSCS I was able to get a media pass and get right out on track which is something I have never been able to do before.
Something that had not occurred to me about shooting on course was the interaction between photographers on each corner, I basically tried to keep to myself and out of peoples shots, but getting prime territory was a hard fought battle and if you were in someones shot they let you know.
One of the photographers ended up putting his Go Pro where he couldn’t be in hopes it would get great footage but instead it got smashed into hundreds of tiny pieces.
The biggest buzz around the track at this round of CSCS was whether or not the unknown, rumored Chinese Grand Prix competition driver, would be able to take the track record (1:13.9) from Sasha Anis.
With no practice ‘Racer-X’ manged to get the fastest lap of the day (1:16.9) but wasn’t able to topple Sasha, I am sure he wasn’t two sad though as he brought two Ferrari Scuderia’s along with him and his own entourage of women.
Looking forward to seeing the battle for top spot continue at later CSCS events.
Show & Shine coverage should be up tomorrow, with Fitted coverage the following day.
your pics turned out great, dave! excellent coverage so far.
Great pics, thanks for getting so many of my truck. 🙂
No drag coverage?
Sadly no not at this round, when I wanted to head over it had shut down for the day.
That truck is unreal. Sorry to hear about Chris de la Cruz, Ive been in that car passenger seat for roughly 6 years now. Love that POS lol
That was actually a Fearless Motoring car, the yellow S13! The Drifters Anonymous cars were the white and black 240 that didnt qualify, Miguel in his 180 and Marin.
