Below are links to slideshows of all the picture I took from the USGP weekend. The two support classes were Formula BMW and IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Cars. They were cool, but little fish compared to F1. Hearing an F1 car come screaming (and I do mean screaming) by you will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck... lap after lap after lap. The absolute coolest sound, though, is when they launch on launch control. It literally sounds like they are ripping the air apart - amazing!

Anyway, enjoy the pics:

The noise is fantastic - you can literally feel the air vibrate!

I've been to two GPs.

Nice photos. I wish I could have gone, but I was out of town. The noise is insane. I can usually hear the cars from the USGP or the 500 from inside my apartment downtown!

Thanks guys! I was shooting with a Canon Rebel XT and a Canon L-series 70-200 f/4 (non-IS). All images were shot as JPEG's in the large resolution.

Thanks! I didn't know Wired had any F1 pics, but I'll stop by a mag shop today and check it out.

well not normally (and they're nascar, not F1, sadly), but the guy has such a cool setup and process that it got him in.
