Smoke

An Elva smokes a front tire as it locks up the front wheel braking into corner one.

  2. Doesn’t look as though it bodes well for the driver. Great stop-action shot.

    This one’s really great. It really captures what’s going on. (Fortunately, it’s all moving a little slower in the driver’s head.) The speed, the nose-down, turn-in, trail-braking attitude with the inside front tire smoking as it lightens and lifts a little. Wow. Neat shot! For those not so keyed in to racing, this seems (to me) akin to catching the ball just inches off the batter’s swing or the receiver’s stretched-out grab for the football in the end zone. Love it!

  14. The motion you have captured here is really super and along with the smoke it makes for a most interesting photo and storyline.
