Night at Road Atlanta

076a4697About 50 minutes before the end of the Petit Le Mans and Road Atlanta is in full darkness.  The paddock and hospitality areas are fully lit and very active.  From this shot, pits for BMW and Mazda are visible with the Risi Ferrari crew laying out for their last pit stop of the event.  Rows of transporters line up behind pit lane – in some cases, crews have already begun to break down the tents and infrastructure of the paddock.  Atop the hill, hospitality for Audi clearly shows the famous four rings highlighted in red.  The Porsche tent is visible to the left with the Lego 919 still welcoming visitors.

Scenes like this add to the unique experience that is endurance sportscar racing at night.

Camera Settings –  1/100 shutter speed, f/2.8, ISO 1600, 105mm.  Taken without a tripod or monopod.
