Exclamation Need pictures of the new Indycar?

Hello everyone. I'm a little new to this place so don't come down too hard.

I'm going to Long Beach Grand Prix tomorrow and staying there the entire weekend. I got myself and a friend paddock passes so we can mill around and look at the cars.

This presents an excellent opportunity to get great orthographic views of the cars, if anyone needs them. It'll be raining Friday (and I think the first time it has ever rained at the LBGP, unless I'm mistaken) so I believe most of the teams may opt to stay in the garages for most of the practice seshs.

All I need is directions on what kind of pictures I need to take, from what angles and what kind of resolution you guys need. Or if you even need pics at all. Also if I missed any kind of question I should have asked, please fill me in.

Duty now

Well, I'd have to say side on, front , rear and diagonally from each corner would be a great start. Plus internal cockpit shots and as Hi-res as you wanna go. Best bet is to just take as many as you can and upload them to this thread. I'm sure people are interested in looking even if they wont use them

For modeling the best shots for side/front/rear are those from far with with zoom. Close shots have too much perspective.

Thanks everyone. I'll be sure to upload them as the weekend progresses. May be a little difficult to get more range on some of the shots because from my experience of going two years ago, they like to pack the teams in like sardines. Will try my best though.

Here's some stuff from today. The teams like to hide it from certain angles, and I was personally just having way too much fun toady that I know that I didn't get all the angles possible. More pics for tomorrow though

Thanks. Yeah they look waaaayyyy better in person than they do on TV. On TV the images are compressed a little. They look much better when they roll past your feet. They remind me of the F1 cars from the late 80's, early 90's. And the cars sound just as beautiful as they look.

The front end pictures were kind of hard to get, again because as they roll out they mount the front end structure in that frustrating position. I had a couple of close angles but they weren't perfectly frontside orthographic. I'll upload a little more, once I actually have the camera in my presence.

By the way, question to the modelers, was any of this helpful in anyway?

Yes, they were to me I must be the only person who did not know that they had changed the cars. I like the way they look, I would love to hear how they sound. Thanks for the pictures.

Excellent pics, thanks for taking the trouble to post them, best close ups I've seen, don't get much chance to see them properly in UK
