    Dang it didn't look like the race car was going fast at all, but ouch. And how could the photographer and car not even attempt to move?

    "Behind the lens" invulnerability, perhaps?

    Yeah, the car made a jink to the left at the last moment - but the dumb@## photographer was walking backwards into Pit Row looking through his lens and stepped backwards right into the car.

    Neither the driver or the photog were looking where they were going?
    The driver didnt even try to miss.

    I was thinking that the car didn't really try to move that much, but surely they must be used to people jumping in front of them to take photos and then getting out of the way before they get too close. By the time the driver realised he wasn't getting out the way it was too late really.

    Ouch though. Got to hurt. Hope the guy was ok. Usually you see them getting up on these kind of videos - he just kind of lay there....
