Daytona was a bit weird for me, as it was the rare time that I have been at a race without photo credentials. That meant that I didn’t have my go anywhere access, but my media creds still offered unlimited access to the pits, unlike some other series. As Sunday rolled onwards and teams packed up and went home, the empty pit stalls became perfect spots to shoot the action in the pits. I decided to stitch together some stop action footage and through in a soundtrack of the on track action. I hope you like it!
While the action is always hot out on the track, the real excitement for many happens on pit lane. The Garage Blog spent some time in pit lane with the Indycar series during practice and qualifying for the 2011 Honda Indy Toronto and came away with more than a few smokin’ hot photos.
Check out the excitement after the break.
I suspect that Will is currently on a plane somewhere between rainy Fla and flooded Ca as I write this. Will was kind enough to grab a bit of pit lane video in the early evening yesterday during the Rolex 24. This was a typical DP stop, with no repairs. During this stop, they dump in enough fuel for about an hour of racing. I’m sure Will will have more details later on.
