How simply peaceful the shot is you have achieved!! It's like "time to breathe" - the irony of the feeling of "just take another quiet breath" , given the event it makes it simply more beautiful... that's what I see anyway and what it made me feel - "take a breath"
Simply beautiful....

Thank you!  And yes, I was able to stand on what was, at that time of day, just a regular road for residents to use & take a breath in the blissful calm & quiet before a hectic few days of work & racing.

Thanks!  Unfortunately, it rained on race day so the first 3/4 the driver's were quite careful. Then it seemed like they all went nuts for the final couple of hours so it turned out to be an exciting finish.

One of your best pictures so far. Could be a cover of a book, or an advertisement of a movie. Just perfect

Wow, thank you so much!  I must admit, when I pictured getting this shot, this was more or less exactly how I imagined it, so I was incredibly fortunate with the light & the sunrise.  Especially since it rained & was overcast every other morning we were there.  Well worth getting up at 5:30 for.
