Picture of the Day: WEC in Mexico City

This image was taken during free practice for the 6 Hours of Mexico last September, the first visit to Mexico by the FIA World Endurance Championship and the fifth round of the nine race world championship.

The image was taken by Jeff Carter on the Fujifilm X-T2 and XF100-400mm f4.5/5.6R OIS LM WR fitted with the XF1.4x converter.  

The sun was setting behind the grandstands and Jeff spotted the sunlight reflecting on the track surface as the cars exited the stadium section of the 4.3km Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.   

It was just a matter of waiting for two cars to be in the right position on the track and this shot is of the Porsche 911 hybrid having just over taken the Ford GT.  

The exposure was 1/1600s @ f10 ISO200 to freeze the action.



Fujifilm X-Treme is a project run for Fujifilm by official X-Photographers Jeff Carter of MacLean Photographic and John Rourke of Adrenal Media.  

Having already proven that Fujifilm cameras can work as well as any other camera system in the world of motorsport within the World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, these two sport and commercial photographers will be taking the Fujifilm X-Series and GFX cameras and lenses to the extreme in different sporting environments.
