ALMS – Photos from Petite Le Mans
While down at Road Atlanta for the final round of the 2012 Star Mazda Championship Presented by Goodyear, our photographer Brian McKay, also collected some outstanding images of the American Le Mans Series action and their final race of the season, the Petite Le Mans. This was a unique event as many of the teams brought in additional drivers from other series to compete alongside the ALMS regulars. IZOD IndyCar Series three-time champion and this year’s winner of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, Dario Franchitti, was there racing as teammate to his brother and sports car specialist Marino Franchitti. Many GrandAm regulars also made it down to Road Atlanta including Patrick Dempsey and 2007 Star Mazda champion Dane Cameron. The infamous Delta Wing also rat at PLM this year, and did very well. As ugly as we may think the car is, it’s a great platform for a prototype sportscar, and I look forward to seeing how the car and platform develop over the off-season in readiness for the 2013 season. Unfortunately, we were not able to secure a photo vest for Brian, and that makes the images he was able to collect even more amazing! It just goes to show that a good photographer will ALWAYS find a way to capture great images.
