Today is the Official Test ahead of the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 13/14 June. The 56 entrants for the world famous race will be joined on track for the two 4-hour sessions by the six reserve entries and two ELMS spec LMP3 cars run by Team LNT and will include Olympian Sir Chris Hoy getting his first experience behind the wheel of a race car at Le Mans.
Yesterday I was involved in organising the group shot of the 56 entries on the grid and my job, as it has been since 2012 was to position the cars in the right place by talking to the official photographer Eric Gilbert on the radio, who was positioned in a high lift 20 metres above the track.
Earlier I took the opportunity to walk around the pitlane, joining the public in seeing the preparations for today's test sessions.
KCMG were conducting a pitstop practice and using the X-T1 and the 10-24mm f4 lens, with the camera set to 8 frames per second, I captured some images using a slow 1/20s shutter speed which blurred the movement of the mechanics as they changed the tyres on the LMP2 class Oreca-Nissan race car.
