***D1GP Miami Event Coverage***

Hi.

This was my first time having media access to a race event like this, and despite the fact that the people in charge of the media at D1GP were totally unorganized, I had a great time. First we were told we'd have access to the track both Friday (practice runs) and Saturday (event day) - then I got an email two days before Friday saying we couldn't be there Friday for whatever reason, but that'd we'd still have track access Saturday. I get there at 7:45am Saturday and head out to the track to shoot the guys who are out there doing practice runs. We're on the track for about an hour when the officials told us we couldn't be on the track, and we were all moved behind the fence. So we started cutting holes in the fences. :lol:

It's also worth noting this was the first time I got to use my new Canon 70-200 2.8 IS L lens I had got a few days before, which is nothing short of amazing. Worth every penny, the sharpness of the pictures is crazy. I can zoom to 100% crops and still have usable pictures, I love ittt

Anyways, enough rambling, D1GP was freaking awesome, here are the first round of pics:





































Final Round:







More to come!

It was way too easy to get media access to this event. The D1 website had a link for car show registration, driver registration, and media registration. I filled out a media registration request, provided a link to my google blog, and a week later I found out I was added to the list. At first I thought I was just lucky or they were being nice to me, but the day of the event I saw tons of people with media passes, from kids with point and shoots, to guys just walking around the pits without cameras or anything. It kinda sucked having all these guys in your way when you're trying to shoot from your "media access only" locations haha.

Awesome shots Raymond, and I hear you on the 70-200/2.8L IS. I have the Nikon equivalent and it's phenomenal. Nice shooting!
