I was able to get down to Florida for my birthday, which conveniently fell on the same weekend as the Indycar season opener. Flew down there, crashed with friends, drank beer, and went to the race track. It was a good weekend.
On to the photos. We had great seats in the grand stands at turn 1 but they were not great for taking photos since there was a pair of speakers and a fence blocking my way. I only really took pictures on Saturday during the Pirelli World Challenge Round 3 race and again on Sunday during the PWC round 4 race. I had a lot of trouble with getting good shots as well, i’m not sure if my older 70-300 is starting to go or if this was simply user error.
These photos are from Round 4 on Sunday. This race was run mostly under caution after a GT cup car Hit the wall hard on Lap 1. Then later on there was another incident at turn 1 that they were able to get cleaned in time for a 2 lap rush to the checkered flag.
Here is a recap of race 2
