We don’t typically make it out to Edge Addicts track events, since we don’t get media access. They contract a company for track photography, so we aren’t able to shoot from the best vantage points.
With us already being at the track for Cars & Coffee, and also having some friends participating, we figured we would give it a go.
The best place to shoot from without Media access has to be the Pedestrian foot bridge before turn 3. From this vantage point, with the right lens you can get some decent shots. It’s a bit tricky without something greater then 105mm, so bring the big daddy out if you own one.
The second best place to shoot from is the paddock which is usually open during a more low-key event like this. You can usually chat with race teams or race participants in garages and in the parking lot.
Another favorited spot to snap shots has become the gas pumps down the street from the paddock. When you’re going WOT in a Race car, the thirst is real.
We’d love to participate in a Introduction to Performance Driving event which seems to be one of the most affordable ways to get on COTA with an instructor. Check out Edge Addicts’ calendar for their 2019 event schedule.
