    I haven't seen you around here in a while MukiBoy. I was just telling [Kane] yesterday when I met you and Matt (aramis) shooting the Street Soccer. Anyway, nice shots. 7 is probably my favourite.

    It shows what position they are in their class. Otherwise the general punter wont know who is where.

    Thanks Martin, still lurk in here just don't get out to photo much with a two year old and a new one any day now.

    The digital numbers make spectating a lot easier, especially when there are four classes of car running, and they worked pretty well

    Ryan Briscoe (an Australian) racing for the Corvette team for the first time in it's history and not one photo. Bravo...

    No, I don't. Ryan Briscoe was in car number #3.

    http://www.imsa.com/sites/default/f...R Championship Road Atlanta Race Official.pdf

    Which finished 17th.

    Nice effort on the photos, you seem to be doing a good job of that. :thumbup::thumbup:

    The number 3 is well known and significant to drivers and fans, especially in America. For good reason.
    Daniel Ricciardo thinks so too, and is the reason, as he has stated that he wears the same famous styled number on his helmet.

    Why is the number 3 so coveted?

    Number 3 is associated with Dale Earnhardt, one of the best, who died in a crash at 2001 Daytona 500. The number hasn't been used since with an agreement by teams not to use, at least in NASCAR.

    It's been in use since the start of this year (Austin Dillion) in the NASCAR Cup Series.
