Miatas at MRLS 2013: Part Two

Here we are at the top of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Last year, I would trudge across the entire track in the rain every time I wanted to shoot at the corkscrew. This year was different. This year we had “Confidence in Motion”. We had the Subaru Outback 3.6R which we used as a sort of gunship over the corkscrew.

A couple of glory shots for the Outback being used the way it should be.

We found this random Ferrari California sitting up at the top.

Mel was manning the Canon 500mm while Matt and I were running out telephoto zooms up close and personal.

Most people use monopods for their big bazooka primes, but Matt and I prefer free-handing them. Plus, we kind of looked pretty bad ass.

We got pretty creative with shooting spots and sometimes you wouldn’t even see us shooting from the in the bushes.

We moved to a couple spots throughout the day for some more angles even though the corkscrew was probably the most exciting turn.

In the afternoon, there was a guy flying overhead shooting with what looks like a Sony camcorder.

After a good day of shooting, we just relaxed for a bit. Recently, we started this thing I call “Toretto-ing” which it inspired from Vin Diesel’s character in the Fast and the Furious franchise.

It all started from the very first where he had his “It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile” speech straight on through to the latest one with “This is Brazil”.
