Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Night)

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Night)

As the day turned to night the paddock got quieter, and there were fewer spectators.  So there was ample opportunity for photos, and the primary light source being the paddock lighting made for some interesting photos.  This group of images includes some wide-angle shots of the paddock area, grandstands, and garages – they might make some good backdrops for model photography.

 

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Day)

Daytona Classic 24 – Saturday (Day)

Saturday saw the kickoff of the Daytona Classic 24 event.  Rather than have all the cars on the track at the same time, the race was made up of a series of class-based events.  I think that was to reduce the wear and tear on the old hardware, and maybe to reduce the odds of an accident.  So each class rotated through the event two or three times over the course of the 24 hours.  This process also made it much better for those of us trying to take photos, since it meant that the majority of the cars were in the paddock at any given moment.

An assortment of photos from last weekends Classic Daytona 24 Hours.  What a fantastic event – lots of cars, plenty of aggressive racing, and wide-open paddocks so photos are a breeze.  This set is from Friday, November 13, 2015.  Today was the closing race of the Trans-Am season, and qualifying races for the weekend’s 24-hour race.
