Crash in Le Mans 2008

I was yesterday evening at the qualification for Le Mans 2008 endurance race. Luckily (as a photographer), I was in the right place to cacth a glimpse of the crash of the Lola Mazda car that went flying in the last minutes of the tests (unlucky for the team).

I was at 1/40s and f/2.8 (on my Minolta APO G 200mm tele-lens), so the image is a little blurry… Usually, I wouldn’t let such low quality out, but the accident is still quite spectacular.
