Classic IMSA Action at the Monterey Historics

Armed with only our trusty little Nikon Coolpix L3 — which is a fine we camera for shooting things that happen to be static, but not so good for objects moving at a high rate of speed — and Pen's access to the trackside Ferrari Club of America tent, we went for broke shooting the no talkin' man, all action IMSA race. While some of the other classes were more of a high speed exhibition, the IMSA guys weren't poontangin' around; dudes was haulin' some serious poop. While the race was dominated by 935s and Monzas, Bobby Rahal showed up in an M1 and put on a strong showing. Ultimately, though, Bruce Canepa of Scotts Valley, CA (the #12 car pictured above) walked off with the win in his '79 935, but not after doing some serious Ginsu-style slicing and dicing to score the victory. Best race we saw all weekend.
