Your Flickr Snaps

Posted on: November 28, 2010 | Comments(3) | Flickr | By: Daniel

Another week is underway and here’s another piece on Flickr. Since the season ended in early October (which seems like a long time ago), we’ve been running a series of Flickr/photo blog posts, covering everything from our most popular images, to most interesting, to what IndyCar teams are doing. This time, it’s all about you. I searched through images from our contacts within Flickr and found some pretty cool shots. Here they are.

Here’s Takuma Sato on the streets of St. Petersburg by James Boone. The blurriness reveals the speed and movement at a street circuit.

Gerry Calub grabbed this shot in pit lane at Infineon Raceway. Any ideas on what these are? I always enjoy pictures that show the behind the scenes action at an event.

Daniel Riffero grabbed this shot of Tony Kanaan through the corner at Long Beach. Looks like this was a tough one to get.

Bo Gray got truly behind the scenes at a video shoot, to grab some really candid shots. Here’s Dario Franchitti, driving in a a drop top.

Flickr user Track Chic caught this great moment with Helio Castroneves celebrating his win Barber Motorsports Park. Who doesn’t love champagne shots?

Remember some of the weather issues in Sao Paolo earlier this year? Check out Crystian Cruz’s view of things. It should bring back all the memories.

Those are some pretty incredible shots. If you’ve taken some and you want us to know, please leave us a comment or share a link. We’d love to see them.

Otherwise, what are your thoughts on some of these images?

    I have been enjoying your photostream all season. Thanks for blogging about it in the off season. My flickr site is from the Iowa race. Nothing too spectacular but one of my photos did make the Indycar calendar!

    “Any ideas on what these are?”

    brake discs and brake pads. I am unsure if the author is just playing stupid, or is really just that oblivious…

    Susan – thanks so much for your comment and sharing a link to your work.

    Biggie – I posed the question hoping for some interaction – not all of our fans know what these are. Thanks for pointing it out.
