Shooting at a new track always poses a variety of challenges, but my main issue at ACS was that the security patrol continued to kick us out of areas we were actually allowed to shoot at. Despite sending over insurance information, getting approval beforehand, and getting the go-ahead from the track director as well as fire and safety, we continued to be removed from certain areas.
Each time the security guard would say that either the track director or fire and safety said we needed to move, so we did. After the event we discussed this with both fire and safety as well as the track director, all of whom said they never had a problem with where we were shooting from.
Long story short, the security guards weren't actually communicating with anyone, and this means that this time around not every group will have the same photos as other groups due to the constant interruption. This also meant that the video was affected on the second day, with only groups 3 and 4 getting decent angles. I apologize if your friends end up with better shots, but there was nothing we could do this time around.Steps have already been taken to prevent this in the future and we hope to see you out at an event soon.
