This is a panoramic shot of the turn 5 area, where cars come from the upper right (turn 4) and into this very severe u-shaped turn. This picture shows some of the three types of race cars on the track all at the same time, the LMR unlimited prototype group, the GTS group, and the GT group. The speed differential between each of these groups is pretty astounding to see. It makes turns like this very interesting because the prototype cars literally close on the slower cars with such speed that the drivers have to have a sixth sense about riding with one eye looking forward, and the other in the rear view mirror. Fortunately, they are assisted in the process of having to move over by flag men. The blue flag indicates that the car is being overtaken, and not to obstruct the passing vehicle. Pretty cool stuff!
