FIA WEC 6 Hours of Sao Paulo 29th November 2014 – Blog

We arrived at the circuit at a reasonable time for a change. Fiona Miller FIA WEC was writing an article about Audran Lernoux who had won a photographic competition and the prize was attending the FIA WEC Sao Paulo with his father. Audran had a smile on his face the whole time. It will be interesting to see how his photography evolves. Sometimes in life you need a little help, opportunity or luck. He was with his father the only photographers on the corner when Mark Webber crashed and captured the whole extraction of Mark.
