Thanks for the info. We have a local drag strip near me in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Oh how I wish it had a "bridge" overlooking the drag strip like the one in your photo. Very unique perspective, especially for drag racing.
This is in Puerto Rico, where there is plenty of rum and not much regard for safety. Not complaining, I pick up my photographers pass, and can kind of go where I want. My safety is up to me... I tried panning the cars at the finish line, and then realized 100-250mph hour cars are not the best panning subjects from 10 feet away. It is quite a rush when hey go by though.
One weird thing about the bridge is the cars move and there is no sound. The sound takes so long to arrive the cars have moved 10 feet, you have to watch the tree.
I do run a movie through my head of a guy getting taken out by an engine block in a drag race in the states, early 80s I think.AU3E1214_tonemapped
