Photographer Escapes Death, Gets the Shot


I dare you to show me a person with bigger set of stones than British photographer Andy Willsheer who was on hand at the Pomona Raceway for the Auto Club drag racing finals. As Steve Gasparrelli started off the line his car hit an oil slick and immediately swerved out of control, heading towards the barrier and exactly where Willsheer was standing. In an instant a hulking tower of metal was flying out-of-control right for him. Without panicking, Willsheer stood his ground, snapping photograph after photograph despite the inherent danger. The car ultimately came to a rest a mere 3 feet from him, and while everyone else rushed away, Willsheer stayed put and got the shot. Awesome!
