DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.—Motor racing is a multi-sensory experience—the sight of the cars, crowds, and track, the sounds of the engines, the smell of burning fuel and sometimes, burning rubber. A good image can evoke the rest of those sensory stimuli; a good image can recreate the scene and the feeling of being in the scene.
Veteran motorsports photographer and occasional Epoch Times contributor Bill Kent has offered up a few images of the Tudor 53rd Rolex 24 at Daytona, Jan. 24–25 to give viewers a chance to recall, or imagine, what it was like to be trackside at the 24-hour event, with changing light, changing temperature, and the constantly changing stream of colorful cars roaring loudly by.
The next race on the Tudor United SportsCar Championship schedule is another endurance classic, the Twelve Hours of Sebring on March 21, 2015 (tickets are already available—reserve a campsite early.)
Come on out and make your own memories—or come back here after the race and see it through the lens of Mr. Kent’s camera.
