Nissan 240SX rain drift El Toro car opposite lock

Today was drift day at El Toro. Interesting events, interesting crowd. It rained until about noon, making driving and shooting difficult. Then the sky cleared up and all was well.

Drifting creates some great opportunities for the photographer, but it isn't easy. Panned shots are important and this skill always involves a degree of trial and error.

Retirement

Today featured a long-anticipated Del Mar session followed by a screening of Streets of Legend. Unfortunately the movie did its Sundance award little justice. And there wasn't much in the way of racing. But I have high hopes for Driven.
