    I've been following the Nissan Delta Wing and saw it in person at the Detroit AutoShow this past January. What did you think seeing it in action at Road Atlanta? I'm a huge fan!!!

    The Deltawing fishtails coming down the "Esses" perhaps its a suspension setup issue so far but again it still lacks the speed that the Muscle Milk Honda and Rebellion Toyota have. Other than that, it is has its own style of driving due to the two front 4" tires so they say its has to be driven quite differently especially when approaching the apexes.

    I just do it as a hobby.

    Outstanding photos! What camera and lens were most of them shot with? Maybe even a shutter speed and f/stop if you would.

    Thanks J! turn 3 has that wheel hop action but it happens in a blink of an eye, meaning that timing the perfect shot with the wheels in the air takes time to nail it. And I was at the spectator side behind the fence which sucks for getting a nice photo angle as opposed to the media photogs who have closer and better shooting positions.


    Thanks...I used a 5D MK III with a 70-200mm. Shutter speeds vary with panning shots and stills. For panning it can be from 1/180 sec-1/30 sec. Stills from 1/500 sec to 1/1250 sec but it all depends on many variables of how you want to freeze the action or show some motion.

    Tickets should be available even up to the last day. Just make sure you book a hotel in 3-4 months in advance. I can't believe that all hotels within 25miles of Sebring, Florida are already booked for the 12hrs of Sebring in March next year.

    Race Day:

    I loved the slower shutter speeds and panning to blur the background. You've got to walk such a fine line for shutter speed and perfect panning. Oustanding compromise.
