Racing Through History – The 2015 Classic 24 Hour at Daytona

This past weekend, we had the wonderful pleasure of shooting the Classic 24 Hour at Daytona for Top Gear and Petrolicious.  We’re a big fan of endurance races here at Deremer Studios, and we love classic cars – so the combination of the two was near irresistible.  The field represented a wide range of storied classics from the Sixties, up to the present, with notable entries including a Ford GT40, A handful of Shelby Gt-350 Mustangs, Six – count them six – BMW CSLs, and a gaggle of Lola prototypes from the last 50 years.

As one would expect with cars worth more than a city block, the racing wasn’t especially heated, yet the drivers weren’t afraid to push their cars to the stops and give us some healthy competition along the way – they even manged to go three wide more than a few times…  From flame-belching braking and those glowy discs everyone so loves, to the roar of engines pushed up against the red line as the competitors ran through the gears, it was certainly a feast for the senses.

And then there was the night racing – wit the cars under minimum lighting – flying around the course at breakneck speeds.  One particular car, the #202 BMW CSL captivated my attention in the Horseshoe (above), with it’s proclivity to send out foot-long flames as it stepped down the gears on the approach.  All in all it was quite the event, and one I would heartily recommend to any enthusiast.
