2015 VIR Prototype Lites

How can you dislike a track that has a well appointed Tavern onsite? VIR is in the middle of nowhere, but it’s still a beautiful place to shoot. In not too keen on the Biscuitville nonsense nonsense for this year.  The GT cars were our at VIR the week prior and somehow the Prototype Lites ended up being the support series for a K&N event. They didn’t even run the full track, so some of the best places to shoot were without cars.  On the first day of practice, for reasons better left unexplored, I didn’t realize that the short track was being used and lost fifteen minutes or so of confusion waiting for the cars to come through the back half of the track…..duh

The Lites did put on a good show and there was certainly some good racing. Not that anyone who wasn’t there would have known, the IMSA timing and scoring was dedicated that weekend to a Canadian GT3 event, so even at the track, we had to guess what was happening.

I don’t have much to say about this weekend, so let’s close on a good note.  COTA is next and the WEC is running that weekend as well.

I have included several highlight images from the Prototype Lites weekend below.  As always you can check out all my work at DarrenPierson.com
