Northeast Grand Prix ALMS 2012

It was a long haul from California to Connecticut; up through Oregon and Washington, then across the top of the States, ducking under Lake Michigan then through Ohio and PA…you get the idea. We had stayed on the Left coast long after Laguna and soaked up the local grape, now we needed to head to […]


Laguna Seca 2012 IMSA GT3 & Lites Races 1 & 2

Green to Checkers victory. Last minute confusion on the flag stand caused the Sunoco Checkers to be used for Tristan. His lead was so large, they were able to find the correct flag for second place.     All of my images from the 2012 Modspace IMSA weekend at Laguna Seca can be found HERE […]


Laguna Seca 2012 – GT3 & Lites Test Day

Test days can really work in your favor. You are pretty much alone and not too many bits of visual clutter (RVs, canopies, cars, fans) have arrived to mess up your shots.  Those lovely blue and brown port-a-potties are more easily seen, but still, there is less to avoid. You can take your time to […]


Long Beach Grand Prix ALMS 2012

  The Grand Prix at Long Beach is a fun event. Its run in concurrence with IndyCar, so on one hand, I find it annoying; on the other, we really enjoy being there. The ALMS race is actually race, rather than a parade, so the on track action is great. Morning practice was dark and […]


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 […]


Petit Le Mans Week 2011

The ILMC/WEC races are starting to have an IndyCar weekend feel to them. The faster cars show up and bring a self-important, aren’t you glad we are here, now go away we are busy vibe. I like the fact that there are so many international entrants, but somehow the Audi vs. Peugeot thing seems to […]


New catch fence at Road Atlanta

Turn one is suddenly sporting a catch fence. I am not surprised as shooting in T1 at ground level is quite dangerous.  There isn’t much decent room on the riser though. Should be a few angry photographers come Saturday morning. Please follow and like us:


Monday after Laguna Seca office view

We had to shoot on Sunday at Laguna, so we stayed at the track until Monday morning.  On Monday we went back towards LA and stopped near Ventura.  We had parked here for lunch on the way up to Laguna on Highway 1, so on the way back, we stopped and camped for the night. […]


ModSpace ALMS Laguna Seca

That was a very long drive across the states. Along with all of the normal fun and excitement of a cross country trip, we got to spend the better part of two days in Mercedes dealerships.  Driving though Denver at 3pm on a Saturday, the resonator on the turbo cracked and needed replaced.  Two days […]


Baltimore Grand Prix 2011 ALMS

After two races at familiar tracks stretching to learn the nuances of being a series photographer, we headed to the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix. A street course that we had never seen and where cars had never been driven in anger (well, other than taxis).  Neither Cooper nor GT3 were here; I suppose since IndyCar […]


Road Race Show Case at Road America

Just before Mid-Ohio I was hired by IMSA to be the Series Photographer for both the Cooper Prototype Lites and the IMSA GT3 Challenge. I had shot both series off and on the the last few years, but only a few sessions here and there.  Certainly never all sessions and ceremonies.  At Mid Ohio, I […]


Mid Ohydroplaning

Mid Ohio is one of those tracks.  Its a great place to shoot and to race but when we are there, it’s an IndyCar weekend, so we are the warm-up act.  All sorts of unfamiliar and sometimes unfriendly people in the paddock and pits.  New weird rules, old weird rules.  The IndyCars run on Sunday […]


Mosport, eh?

What’s up with Canada?  We love the people, the climate, the attitude.  Poutine and Peameal are right in our wheelhouse.  Why does Canada keep kicking our asses?  Last year wasn’t completely bad, we were only slightly detained and questioned in the border crossing.  Later, while hunting for propane in Oshawa, we were introduced to a […]


Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park 2011

That was a really long break from Long Beach. You could see indications of slight disorientation everywhere as if we were all still not sure where we were. Then the engines started and it all came flooding back in a rush. Sports Car Racing, yes, I remember it now. Shooting at Lime Rock is, at the same […]


Lime Rock Time!

Proper racing has finally returned to our continent and not a minute too soon.  The break in between Long Beach and Lime Rock seems like it lasted eons.  We were incredibly busy during the Le Mans respite, so it is for certain traveling to the races would have been difficult.  We are just glad the season is […]


Long Beach Grand Prix ALMS Friday Practice Highlights

I keep wanting to call it morning practice since it started at 7:15 AM, but out here at the Beach, its the ONLY practice.  Two hours to set-up the car while learning the track.  Then a few hours break and back for qualifications.  Not much time for anyone.  The Indy Cars are the show out […]
