2016 12 Hours at Sebring

Yes, it is a 12 hour race; that is true. But for most of us, race day is more like a 20 hour race or more preceeded by a week’s worth of very long days. My Saturday started out at 5AM when the alarm went off and I fell asleep on the couch pretty much […]

2016 Sebring 12 Hours Grid Group Day

Tomorrow is the first day the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship cars will take to the track. Well, actually, that’s not entirely correct. At the close of the day, there were a few cars out on the back straight for a group shout of the entire field. It’s late, so I’m going to spare you and not […]

Second Session Winter Testing

I didn’t spend too much time out on the track today, when I went out this afternoon, the light was too short and I wasn’t feeling it.  I shot a few near the crossover bridge for the Green Park and then went back to the pits to finish up. It looks like many of the […]

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 […]

2016 Mazda Prototype Winter Testing Day Two

Good Morning! While it did rain overnight and the skies were a flat grey at the 8AM start time, the track was basically dry and there wasn’t any more rain forecast until after the session. When I say mostly dry, there was some water in both T1 and T17, a few of the early risers […]

2016 Sebring Winter Testing Mazda Prototypes

Hiya!  It’s sorta sunning now, in fact a rainbow just appeared, but the day has had its share of rain and clouds. Not an entirely optimal day for testing. The Mazda Prototypes ran twice and I pulled a few of my likes from the day’s shooting.  They are below for your perusal and input. More […]

Upcoming: IMSA Winter Testing at Sebring

Next week, the IMSA circus travels back to central Florida and Sebring for the first sanctioned testing there since 2014 and the merger. Normally, winter testing at Sebring was in mid November. When ALMS and GrandAM merged, we had ALMS testing at Sebring in November. Then a few days later, everyone went up to Daytona for […]

TUSCC Winter Testing at Sebring – Sunday

HEY!  The sun came out. We had beautiful morning light to shoot in.  Now of course we have that un-lovely overhead Noonday sun, but there are also some helpful white puffy clouds to help out.  Thankfully, none of them are near the sun, I hate the light-dark-light passing of the clouds, drives me bonkers. My […]

TUSCC Winter Testing – Sebring – Saturday

So far, so good.  Very tiny amount of rain around 8AM and then dry.  Sun keeps peeking through the steel grey clouds.  Hopefully the afternoon session will be dry as well since most of the cars seem to be taking a run on Sunday attitude; only 6 were on track earlier today.  The rest are […]


Well, its dark and raining and I am at Sebring in November. Feels strange to be here now. Normally Winter testing would be happening here around the same weekend as the Super Bowl.  My problem is I am barely dry from the rain at Petit Le Mans and now it looks like I get to […]

Performance Tech Motorsports LMPC back strong for Sebring 2013

An excellent lineup  of teams and drivers in the LMPC class at Sebring sees seven entries with the welcome return of Performance Tech Motorsports to the class.  A standard and Championship holder from the 2012 Cooper Lites Series, Performance Tech returns to the 2013 PC grid with a fantastic driver line up consisting of ALMS […]

60th Annual Twelve Hours of Sebring

Sebring is upon us. Winter testing is long past. The season has begun. Its a doozy to start out. Testing starts on Monday as opposed to Wednesday or Thursday. All the drivers need new head shots. The spotters guide needs shot. Autograph Sessions. Practices, Qualifying, Support races. To top it off, they throw in a […]

2012 Winter Testing at Sebring

In 2011, we didn’t arrive at Winter Testing until tuesday, so we missed out on the IMSA Lites testing. That wasn’t really an option this year, so we made sure to arrive early on Sunday. We landed outside the track, grilled some hot wings and watched the Super Bowl. For fun, our DirecTV receiver decided […]

Shooting When the Fans Are Absent

  Its odd the new places you find to shoot when the Rvs are not blocking the view. Who knew there was a track  and photo holes on this side 🙂 Please follow and like us:

2011 Year in the Pits Slideshow Review

I pulled some of my favorite shots from my work in the pits during the 2011 sports car season.  Some I chose because of the action or the expression, other are simply visually appealing to me. I hope you like them as well.  Enjoy. -Darren 2011 Year In The Pits – Images by Darren Pierson […]

ALMS TV Broadcast Package v2

I am writing this while watching the FIA GT1 race at Abu Dhabi streamed from the GT1 website.  I’m not watching it on my laptop, I’m watching it on our oldish (2001) 55″ HDTV.  The quality is not as good as the SpeedTV livestream of F1 practice, but it is quite watchable.  Tomorrow, we will […]

The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring 2011

Well, one race into the new season and I am already behind on blog posting. I suppose since I was on the ball for the Rolex24, Winter Testing and Amelia Concours, I can cut myself a bit of slack this time. We were in Florida a week before shooting the Concours at Amelia Island and […]

Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring 2011-Pre Race

Its Race Day at 6AM and already the line into the track is huge.  Its going to be a beautiful day!  I’m off to another fun filled 7Am photo meeting but I thought I would share this with you 1st. Please follow and like us:

ALMS 2011 Winter Testing at Sebring

We were already in Florida after shooting the Rolex 24, so we decided to stay rather than driving back to Georgia and then back down for Winter Testing at Sebring.  We spent a few days south of St. Petersburg at Fort DeSoto and then crossed over to Fort Pierce.  Sadly, while staying in Fort Pierce, […]

IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge Winter Testing

Prior to ALMS winter testing at Sebring, the GT3 Challenge cars run for two days. They share track time with the Cooper Prototype Lights, with each series alternating hour time slots. This year there were twenty-three GT3s on the entry list and at times it seemed like they were all on the track at once. […]

Featured Photographer on PhotoShelter

I received an email this morning that PhotoShelter has selected one of my photographs to be included in their Featured Photographer slideshow.  One of my favorites, it is an image of Andy Wallace just before night practice at the 2010 Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring. This means my image, and therefore a link to my […]

Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring 2010

To me, Sebring is the start of the racing season.  Certainly we follow the Dakar and watch every televised minute of the 24 Hours of Daytona, but somehow they feel more like warmups.  Sebring is where it starts. Last year, our spot was too close to the zoo and we ended up surrounded by people […]
