I was shooting for one of the sponsors who wanted a handful of his boats, but was allowed to roam for the rest of the day. I picked up another contract while shooting in the pit, a driver wanted some shots his boat racing. They got my pit access (and had to sign a waiver in case of accident or death lol) as well as VIP access which allowed me to get up to the water front in the VIP area, while regular admission was a good 10-20 feet back of the water's edge. This is my first time shooting such fast moving things. Its also my second semi professional sport shoot (first being a pro soccer game). So its a mix of sport shooting and event shooting as I wanted to get some coverage in the pit and of the people. My flickr has a few more, some closer up of drivers. Sorry for the watermark, they usually arent my thing unless its for public events like this. Thoughts, comments...its all good and all welcome Zipping along Panning shot One category consists of open cockpit races. The day before, a 70 year old driver was ejected from the boat. He went to the hospital and came back on Sunday for more racing Driver returning to the docks Last minute touchups Dropping the boat in Not everyone gets to finish Fixing 'er up before she races Watch your heads!
