Photographer Spotlight: Trevor Longman at High Revs Photography

The #24 Audi R8 LMS of Duncan Ende fights the forces of gravity at Lime Rock Park on July 4, 2013.
An endurance racing event is possibly one of the most difficult motorsport events to photograph. Cars are racing around the track regardless of weather conditions and there's action everywhere all the time. The pits are storms of activity as cars come in for tires, fuel and the occasional repair. Trevor Longman at High Revs Photography has found a way to capture the essence of these hectic and gruelling events. Below is a selection of his favorite recent photographs.
Olivier Beretta makes his move on slower GTC traffic at Lime Rock Park. A similar move later in the race would put an end to his day, clashing with a GTC Porsche. July 6, 2013
Anyone who has ever been to a large race knows that the action is not confined to the track. Though Ferraris battling Porsches is quite the visual treat.

The makeshift tent cities that spring up during the course of these events are equally of note. Endurance racing fans are a hardy bunch indeed!

Longman's photos do a fantastic job of covering all aspects of a modern endurance race and for the remainder of this article, they will simply be posted with his captions. (All the photo captions in this article are his)
