Video: 2016 ROLEX Monterey Motorsport Reunion

I had to pick my shooting spots carefully. Unlike a 4-hour ALMS race, where I could wander, watch, and shoot from all points on the track, the compressed schedule of the reunion forced me to pick a spot for each race. Each race group is only on track for two 20-minute sessions — one on the morning and one in the afternoon. Since I was forced to choose, I chose the exit of turn 11 and The Corkscrew. Turn 11 to capture the sounds of the cars rocketing down the straight at full throttle and The Corkscrew because it is as iconic as it gets. I’m especially happy with the turn 11 footage. The cars sound great getting on the power and you can really see them moving around. They were not babied at all.
