I was invited to the BMW CCA track day last week. Their photographer was a no show so I ended up filling in. I was able to shoot in some places inside the safety fence.

#2 My host, Mark McGriff, one of the instructors for SCCA.



#4 Hmm, I thought this was a BMW track day?

Good compo's. The e46 M3 is a tad unsharp though. The blue e36 has another speed (looks like he is overtaking), so that's fine. Great capture of a rare e12 in #2. Had one of these myself a long time ago. The Mazda in #3 looks good, but as you mentioned, a bit out of place.

Ooww the Nissan Deltawing out .. again . Too bad, lovely concept. The other shots show the weird situation like in Le Mans; GT3 and LMP's in the same race - quite dangerous considering the differences in speed. Very well captured

Btw; a good explanation of some details of this car here.
