Thoughts of Summer - The Smell of Hot Asphalt and Hot Rubber
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Motorsport Ranch Houston 
Posted By: Sailor, 11-25-2012, 04:46 PM

Today, I came across some unprocessed RAW files taken on a sweltering afternoon this past July during an amateur charity race at Motorsport Ranch Houston, a small road-racing track about 15 or 20 miles north of where we live. The subject of these shots, a Datsun 240Z, was built for track use and driven by a professional colleague, Steve, who also has restored a second 240Z for street and show (which I've never seen). Since some of you are experiencing the first twangs of winter, I post these to remind folks about how life will look around eight months hence - at least for gear heads.

Yeah, EM - most of the cars I saw that day were pretty sharp.

Thanks, Bob. I'm sure it was excruciating in the cars - I almost passed out simply shooting photos .
