Photo a Day Challenge

Elusive

Elusive

The competition found this Audi GTP (Prototype) truly elusive at the turn of the century as it appeared to be unbeatable.  This Audi won the American Le Mans Series  in 2000, 01, 02, 03, 04 and 05 as well as the 24 Hour Le Mans in 2000, 01, 02, 04 and 06.

The Road America radar board clocked it at 179 mph as it crested the slight hill coming into Corner Five where this photo was snapped.

  6. Great motion blur…really reinforces the speed you say it travels at.
