I am proud to say that it is hour 11 and I have yet to fall asleep. At around 11pm Belgian time the sky lit up with all sorts of colors from a firework show. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see any of it.
Drivers made more and more mistakes as darkness fell.
The #74 Porsche lasted 91 laps before it was damaged in a crash at 4 hours and 20 minutes.
As cars retired they were crossed out on a huge bulletin board, which was located in the pressroom.
After walking the entire course my favorite corner to shoot is still Turn 3 also known as "Eau Rouge."
In the dead of night Edward piloted the Need for Speed BMW Z4 to 9th position.
The drivers got more and more risky and used every inch of the track as the field of GT3 cars were spread out over the entire track.
There were baseball sized tire chunks all over the end of the straightaway.
I love the look of the Aston Martin, even though it has a big whale mouth.
There is something right about a Mercedes SLS race car.
It seemed the spectators at SPA did not mind the rain or the freezing temperatures.
Those are not rocket boosters on the back of the Z4. Those are glowing exhaust pipes.
I have always had a special place in my heart for the Ford GT. It has never looked so good.
I feel bad for the TV camera-men scattered all around Spa. They must get so bored just shooting one corner over and over again.
Who can resist freshly made Belgian waffles? Especially on such a remote part of the track.
What a great place for a tent. I can't imagine they will get much sleep with cars passing at 150mph.
This track is literally built in the middle of a forest.
Spa is very lively during the wee hours. I can barely walk into the paddock because there are so many spectators.
I felt so special after one of the Lamborghini's presented me with two hearts coming out of turn 6.
As I am writing this Dirk Werner is in 2nd place with 11 hours to go. Hopefully the team can hold this position for the rest of the race.
Michelin brought out an assembly line to change most of the fields tires. I wonder how many tires they will go through this weekend.
After shooting 6 hours straight I decided it was time to head back to the media room.
On the way back I could not resist stopping for a sweet dinner.
Back at the boiler room, Andrew was hard at work updating the Speedhunters Twitter, while Rod played with toys.
At this point the only thing keeping me awake is the drive to produce more amazing photos. Knowing that there are many more vantage points that I have not visited yet makes me want to run out of this stuffy room this instant and shoot some racing.
