FIA WEC 6 Hours of Sao Paulo 27th November 2014 – Blog

Today is a general set up day. I made my way to to the top of the tower and got a great view of the track and the city. Photographed several images and stitched them together in photoshop. Untitled_Panorama1

I then wanted to do a panoramic of the city in the distance.

I make my way to the paddock where the drivers were signing on. Cecile Niveleau of FIA WEC handles this. The drivers need to sign on the ensure their paperwork is up to date and they are approved to race.
