Motor racing photo of the year

This pic has to be one of the best I've seen in ages. Although not technically perfect, it caught the essence of the action, which I think is far more important in motorsports photography. Just look at that trail of smoke that shows that the car is not only airborne, but travelling BACKWARDS!

The Aston Martin DBR9 flew 20 feet further than the first flight by the Wright brothers, in practice for the Mid-Ohio ALMS race! (didn't that Wright bros flight happen in Ohio too?)

The photographer who got it is Jon Williamson. Well done mate!

By the way, video evidence here.
