Behind the Lens by Chris Clark

Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli  photographer Chris Clark gives us a personal look into his creative process, sharing some of his favorite photos from the 2019 Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta event.

Chris Clark:

Road Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks to photograph. Lots of elevation change, signature corners, and whenever you see that red Georgia clay in the background: You know exactly where you were.

 

A TA2 race start: Four, sometimes Five cars wide. Fender to fender, door to door. This is some of the best wheel to wheel racing on the planet.

 

Amy Ruman is always fast at Road Atlanta, the site of her first Trans Am Series Victory in the Trans Am Series.

 

"Cheers!"

These three drivers, Marc Miller, Dillon Machavern, and Rafa Matos would be familiar podium faces throughout the year. Ultimately finishing One, Two, and Three in the 2019 TA2 Championship respectively.

 

The Trans Am SGT Porsches are always a favorite of mine to photograph. I grew up with posters of Porsche 911's on my bedroom wall as I am sure many a racing fan did. The Fall-Line Motorsports guys make my job easy by bringing bright, beautiful cars that, more often that not, end up running very closely together battling for the class victory.


 

Lawrence Loshak extended his strong start to the season at Road Atlanta, his second victory to start the season.

Lawrence is always great to photograph in Victory Lane. No matter how many times he wins, he's genuinely excited to be there, he leaps out of the car like it's his first win. That always makes for a great photo.

 

Lined up and ready to race. Challenger, Mustang, Camaro. Miller, Machavern, Wilson. The Trans Am TA2 class revived the Pony Car Wars. These three ultimately finished second, third and fourth respectively in the race at Road Atlanta last year.

The Burtin Racing Chevrolet Camaros of Lawrence Loshak and Tomy Drissi raced hard to the finish. Swapping positions several ties in the final few laps

 

And finally, who doesn't love dogs?
