2015 Grand Prix of Louisiana

Somehow the Prototype Lites got added onto the IndyCar ticket at NOLA. It was a very strange combination and I am uncertain who convinced whom that NOLA was the proper venue for any legitimate series.  To me, it was more like a club track on steroids. There was only one grandstand and not too many places where you could see the track. Also, there was only one place photographers could enter the very small shooting area. At one point, the track staff wouldn’t let us enter that area because the track was hot.  We eventually went around the corner and into the VIP area and climbed the fence. Holy cow it rained and rained.  I am not sure it was ever not raining. The final lites race ended under red due to rain involved crash ups and if memory serves the IndayCar race ended much the same.  Also, this has to be one of the WORST tracks to shoot.  No access and no photo holes. Please don’t go back

I have included below several of my favorite shots from the weekend.  Me entire body of work can be seen at DarrenPierson.com

Next: We have the long haul to Monterey
