2016 WeatherTech Winter Testing at Sebring

Day one for the big guns has started out bright, sunny, cold and loud. Nearly everyone went out on to track right away and most have been pounding around since 8AM. A Michelin rep just walked up to me and said that Scott Dixon is not only in the Ganassi #67 as I type, but he is confirmed in the car for the 12 Hours. Not sure that I care one way or another, but there it is, use the data as you will. I spent the morning in the paddock and the pits looking for shafts of light and highlights on the cars, the light was really incredible this morning. Maybe I was just so used to the grey gloom of the last few days, who knows. I will go out on the track to shoot later today, for now, here are some of my favorites from the early morning.
