TUSCC Winter Testing – Daytona – Wednesday

P and PC Haulers being loaded (Darren Pierson)

Not the sort of thing I was expecting when I got to the track; all the P/PC teams were loading up to go home.  IMSA/Continental decided that until they knew why the DP tires blew on Tuesday, the test was over for all but the GT cars and the DeltaWing.  Plus, the sky was grey and it kept pretending to rain.  Not a great day for productive shooting.  I shot in the pits for a while and then went out near NASCAR 1 and then left around 11AM.  The plan was to work the files, eat lunch and hope for the sun.  Still no sun, so I went back to the track around 2PM to turn in my lovely blue vest.  That’s it until the Roar, see you there!

I am having trouble reconciling all this testing so close to the end of the season, there is no break. The Roar will be happening in a bit over a month. Its also weird being at DIS and being over the pit wall, but I am glad that rule changed. Several more cars here than at Sebring, so much more happening on the track. Most of them came out right away this morning as opposed to last Saturday when only 6 cars took the track in the morning session. I’m tired, three eight hour sessions in four days seems like a very long race.  These images are from the morning session, I will post some from this afternoon later tonight.

HEY!  The sun came out. We had beautiful morning light to shoot in.  Now of course we have that un-lovely overhead Noonday sun, but there are also some helpful white puffy clouds to help out.  Thankfully, none of them are near the sun, I hate the light-dark-light passing of the clouds, drives me bonkers.

So far, so good.  Very tiny amount of rain around 8AM and then dry.  Sun keeps peeking through the steel grey clouds.  Hopefully the afternoon session will be dry as well since most of the cars seem to be taking a run on Sunday attitude; only 6 were on track earlier today.  The rest are in the paddock in various states of undress.

Well, its dark and raining and I am at Sebring in November. Feels strange to be here now. Normally Winter testing would be happening here around the same weekend as the Super Bowl.  My problem is I am barely dry from the rain at Petit Le Mans and now it looks like I get to spend tomorrow watching it rain.  Its not really clear what will happen tomorrow if it rains as expected.  Not sure anyone will go out, that is the way its been here at testing before.  8 AM will tell the tale.  Now I need to go watch F1 from Abu Dhabi so I can feel free to watch FP1 and FP2 from COTA.

I will post more for you tomorrow
