    I had the opportunity to go to and photograph the Canadian Gran Prix in Montreal last month. My first time to such an event, and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there.

    I was also able to walk along the pits before the races.

    A fine set, John. Blimey, that wheel looks complicated.

    That wheel Pete is, if I'm not mistaken, a control board:rolleyes:
    A fine series of images though!

    Thank you for the comments, Pete and Ivar. Ivar you are correct about the wheel - it is basically a control board for the electronics the engine. The cost for that steering wheel is $25K.
