All this week on The Blog, we’ll be looking ahead to next week’s second annual Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis. Today, IMS staff photographer Chris Jones shares a favorite shot from last year’s race.
For 100 years, Indy cars have gone counter-clockwise at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Photographers are trained to always watch up-track to know what is coming, but we had to adjust our view for this event. It did take a little time to get used to them going north out of the pits rather than south, but by Race Day we were used to it. Besides the change in direction, the biggest difference was the cars turning right and left. The road course opened up a number of new photo opportunities for us to explore and we’ll be back at it again next week.
