By The Numbers: The 12 Hours Of Sebring

Photography by Jamey Price

Can racing be artful?

With our obvious leanings toward classic cars, we don’t cover modern racing all that much. It’s a shame, because some of the most talented photographers spend days at circuits each week, firing off thousands of shots to capture the essence—and all the action—during an event. Jamey Price is one of those photographers who does all that, then pushes himself beyond what you’d normally expect to see from Sebring International Raceway.

We thought it’d be fun to send him to the 12 Hours of Sebring with an assignment for Petrolicious that would have him focusing more on showing a more artful side to this international motor race—telling a story by focusing on the numbers.

Take a moment, click on each photo to see it in full-screen, and immerse yourself in the 12 Hours of Sebring, as shot by Jamey. With expertly captured light trails, motion blur, and incredible detail, this is as beautiful as racing gets.

What’s your favorite shot from this set?

Beautiful shots!! To me, all night shots with glowing rotors are the best! I take my wife and all 4 daughters every year to Sebring and we can’t wait for the sun to set so all the sunset colors bounce off the sky- then all the crazy LED lights and color markings of each car along with their glowing rotors and exhaust flames come out to play during the hard braking turns(Hairpin especially!) My favorite pic of all of these has to be the last one showing the traffic and epic battles that unfold between the 488’s and 911’s!!

Out of these, the black and white. The rest were far too busy for me. Sebring was a great race this year, I highly recommend going if given the opportunity.
