    Thought I'd give you guys a taste of a few images from Le Mans the last few days. Tomorrow is the race, so there will be more to come, weather has been less than stellar, cold and wet, with the sun only breaking through for about five minutes so far this week while cars are on track. Kinda gray otherwise. Anyway, here are a few shots and there are a lot more in the galleries at SpeedArena.com. Enjoy.

    McNish shielding his eyes from the sun at over 200 mph going through traffic.

    The Aston IS the Gulf Livery. The Black and Pink 24 car is a Mazda.

    Here are a few more, I was getting sick of the dial speed connection I had at the local McDonalds last night when I posted the first set. I take good internet for granted till I come over here and find bad connections and ones you have to pay for and the worst of all, ones you pay for that are still bad. :big grin:

    Nice house on the Mulsanne straight at the first chicane:

    Bunch of prototypes leaving Arnage corner, the heat from the cars lingering above them:

    Little traffic at 200+ mph:

    BTW, all the exif info is intact if you want to know how the photo was shot and its also visible on the website. For instance, last one was shot at 1/250 panning with the 500mm.

    Great shots. Always loved the 24 Hour Le Mans, and that McNish shot reminds me of that awesome 24 Hours documentary by Audi/ESPN

    Thanks guys, been working since the start at this point and its now 2:45. Been in and out and now will start editing till sunrise and go out and shoot that (if we have one, been cloudy off and on). Then go through the nice light of the morning and crash for a couple hours before the finish. Only needed two Red Bull's so far, drinking coffee now and will chase it down with candy for the sugar rush to make it through the night.

    More photos posted maybe tomorrow or early in the week depending on time.

    Now 8:20, been up about 24 hours now. Sunrise here was at 6 am, so went out at 5:30 to get in position, shot that, then used some of the other good light for the next couple hours. Now back at the media center, downloading cards, will do the editing and see if there is time for a nap before the finish. I'll post a few things as I get them up.

    Time for another Red Bull.
