    Cool! I like how the painted car in the background almost fits in like a puzzle piece. And the gritty processing works really well for the subject.

  3. Love the way the car on the billboard or whatever in the background acts as a kind of reflection to the real one.

  4. Like the mirror like feeling with the car and the hauler and the desaturated background makes this image pop!

  8. Title contender and two-time race winner Jonathan Gore was one of the stars of the show in race one of the Wisconsin doubleheader, battling to a runner-up finish in Round Nine. One day later, it was series returnee and defending L1 champion Charlie Shears who led the charge for the Georgia-based squad, capturing the Round 10 win in slick conditions. Comprent Motor Sports, having been a single-car outfit for the majority of the season, entered the Road America doubleheader with two cars under the awning, and two standout drivers ready to challenge for top honors. In addition to having Gore – the Round Six and Seven winner – behind the wheel, the former series champion had reigning L1 class champion Shears sliding into the cockpit for Rounds Nine and Ten. As planned, the opening test and practice sessions at the famed Wisconsin road course were utilized by the two talented racers to fine-tune their racing steeds for the high-speed four-mile configuration. With Gore ultimately ending day one third on the speedcharts, and Shears seventh quickest, the stage was set for strong outings come qualifying and the races. Qualifying proved to be a rather uneventful affair, as Gore once again was third fastest in his No. 14 Comprent Motorsports Elan DP02, while Shears secured a row three starting position for his first Prototype Lites race of 2011 with the sixth best time.
