Backstage Pass to the American Le Mans Series at Mid-Ohio
The American LeMans Series is probably the closest we can get to European-style LeMans competition here in the states. As such, we like it very, very much. The prototypes are cool and all, but our favorite is the GT2 class, where we can watch Ferrari, Porsche, Ford, and Aston Martin duke it out on the racetrack. When you find yourself with the opportunity to attend a race, you had better bring your cameras, like we did.
A couple weeks ago the American Le Mans Series visited the Mid-Ohio Race Track as part 6 of a 9-race season. As incredible as it was to watch these amazing cars fly around the track, it was even more amazing to watch the race teams intricately and flawlessly prepare these cars for the race. We were there, and brought our high-res cameras along for the ride.
