Better late than never! Here are two customarily massive albums of photos from my first Le Mans:

Start to Dusk: https://bit.ly/2xMPV0K
Night to Finish: https://bit.ly/2JEmrYA

The first album covers warm-up (from Dunlop Tribune), start (from ACO 18) and then from Ford Chicanes to Tetre Rouge, up to about 8pm.

The second covers that same stretch at night and then just after dawn, then Mulsanne/Arnage/Indianapolis.

I'm happier with the second album than the first. It's much easier to shoot when there's fewer people around! For the night shots I used a very low ISO, which makes the pictures much darker than usual but emphasises the glow of exhausts and lights. My favourites are the shots from Mulsanne - close shots of grimy, patched-up cars on a filthy track, perfect 24-hour race sights!

Enjoy :-)

Great photographs. Thanks for sharing them!

I agree in that I like the second album more as a whole, too.

But the 1st one has some excellent photos as well, like the United #32 car on the 1st page where you can clearly see the driver's helmet (A. Brundle I think?) or the BMW #82 (1st page too) where you can see the driver's left hand. Excellent, I think.
I also really like the shots of the cars lining up Le Mans-style in preparation for the pace car laps.

Did you need a step ladder to get those shots at Mulsanne? It's so many years since I've been over there.

Not quite, I could just reach! It helps that I crop my photos to 16:9 since some of these have a shadow of the fence in the bottom of the original.

Next year I will definitely take a small step. There were shots I couldn't quite reach at Arnage and Tetre Rouge (I'm only 1.75m/5' 9" and ofc the camera is at eye level a few inches below that).

The fencing at Mulsanne is much worse than at TR. There are several spots at TR, particularly shooting right on the apex, where you can lift above the fence, although the loudspeaker poles can be a real nuisance to avoid, as well as people who get up and walk around in front of you!
