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.

L1030697

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.]

L1030698

Oh, look. Car bodies laying around. See, racing mechanics get it: it’s what’s on the INSIDE that matters!

L1030701

L1030702

L1030704

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.

L1030706

This Lotus pretty much looked like the Batmobile. Except it’s faster.

L1030707

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?
