A close up look at racing legend Niki Lauda in his red Parmalat Alfa Romeo getting ready to start a practice run as a weekend of racing kicks off on a Friday. As thrilling as it is to catch all the action of a race in progress, getting a glimpse into the moment before it all begins has its own kind of thrill. The man himself is obscured by his vehicle, lots of protective gear, and considerable visible branding adorning his uniform...But the readiness, the energy, the story of the epic task ahead really comes through, as does his name emblazoned on the helmet. Knowing this hero of motorsports is behind all that red branding makes this image a truly historical one, and we are proud to have captured the moment on camera!
