Day Two of Acronym Racing: WEC
Another beautiful fall day in Austin, Texas; another fantastic race. I’m a little too tired to attempt the task of recapping a six-hour race (check my Twitter feed for some of the highlights), but I thought you might enjoy my pit visit this morning (again, be sure to click on the photos for a larger view; they look better!). There will be more to come, once I sort through photos and get a full night’s sleep.
That is a naked car. Its clothes are to the left (that artsy-farsty looking thing), and its shoes are MIA. [Actually, now that I look at it, I think those are another car’s clothes. This is getting scandalous.]
Oh, look. Car bodies laying around. See, racing mechanics get it: it’s what’s on the INSIDE that matters!
The one on the left kind of caught fire later, during a pit stop. But don’t worry – they just doused that sucker and sent it right back out on the track.
This Lotus pretty much looked like the Batmobile. Except it’s faster.
And the Batmobile doesn’t say that.
And finally – not exactly sure what I was intending to shoot, but have you ever seen a more artistic photo of…chain-link fence?
Wow! Those are fantastic! Thanks ever so much for sharing. I totally agree on the sentiment that it’s what’s on the inside that counts — although the exterior does enhance the experience. If only my Subaru had the capability of clothes-swapping! (I’m not a big fan of the unibody concept.) The old Volkswagen chassis was great for that sort of thing.
Loved the chain-link shot, too. Very artsy. I was reminded of the feeling one gets when one is unable to participate in the real action and is only able to view from afar.
Thanks, Rob! Your kind comments are always much appreciated. I’ll be posting some action shots soon.
