New York to California

img_2495
After going to The Race of Gentlemen back in 2015 in Wildwood, New Jersey, I just had to go again in this year.  After finding out they were also going to be a running the event on the West Coast I mentioned it to Bohan and he immediately suggested “Why not come for TROG and just check out California?  I can show you around and we can go to Yosemite.” I’ve always wanted to go to Cali but I think he knew he’d have me sold with Yosemite.

Raceway Park Rally Sprint


2016 is almost over and I went through the entire year without going to a single rally event.  That was until I received a message from my friend Erin Kelly, a rally co-driver, asking if I was planning on going to some rally sprint on December 4th.  The sprint was being held at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey.  With zero traffic at night, from Long Island, I could get there in about an hour. I was down.

RM Motorsports Holiday Open House


Much like the North American International Auto Show is the season opener in the Detroit area, the RM Motorsports Holiday Open house marks the end of the season. Every December RM Motorsports opens their doors for their holiday open house. I can never miss visiting there because the cars that RM have in their collection are simply amazing. Continue reading

For the fourth year in a row I made my way to Michigan’s Keeweenaw Peninsula for the final round of the Rally America National Championship. It is one of my favorite rallies and like most years the fall colors and the action didn’t disappoint.

Back in April I had received a text asking “Hey, Red Hook is this weekend.  You going?”  Having never heard of this race before I found myself in Red Hook, Brooklyn just a couple nights later, in complete awe by the energy surrounding this event.

Scenes from Evergreen

fdwa1-1805
Round 6 of the 2016 Formula Drift Championship is in the books. Aasbø and Gittin both lost early in the event, while Odi Bakchis took Chris Forsberg all the way to the final battle, where Forsberg spun out, sending Bakchis to the top of the podium. Forsberg remains in the overall lead, followed closely by Aasbø and Gittin, with Bakchis now in forth and Ken Gushi in fifth.

Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby

1
I’ve wanted to do this story for awhile now, but never felt comfortable enough to do it. And there’s two reasons for that. One, it’s NASCAR. I know NASCAR doesn’t always get the best reputation with people because it’s boring or too repetitive. Another reason was because I’ve always gone as a spectator so my photos were always from far away and through fences. But luckily this year NASCAR was cool enough to grant me a media pass. Wednesday night dirt track racing at Eldora? My kind of night. Continue reading

FD Montréal

_MG_3228
It’s always exciting to shoot at a new track, and double exciting when the new track is in a different country. Triple exciting when you get to go there with friends from far-off places. Marcel was in North America for Pikes Peak and decided to stay for FD as well, so after a drive through the desert and brief stay in California, we flew to New York to meet up with Matt. Matt loves driving, and he had just gotten his new Subaru Crosstrek outfitted for road trips, so we all piled in and set sail for Montréal.

Goodwood Festival Of Speed

goodwood
The greatest motorsport event in the world. It’s a bold statement, but in my mind it’s 100% true. I knew coming into Goodwood I was going to be overwhelmed, but I wasn’t ready for just how overwhelming it actually was.

Unheil on Pikes Peak

IMG_1991
You certainly know the story of Pikes Peak, the highest hillclimb in the world and the second oldest race in the US behind the Indianapolis 500.  A few years ago I thought I’d never see this Bergrennen with my own eyes. But I was mistaken. Through my love of racing, photography and crazy things, I decided towards the end of 2015 to experience it in 2016. But to only come here to take pictures? No, that wouldn’t do. I wanted to meet someone there, if possible, to experience the Climb to the Clouds first hand. Approximately two months before the first trials at Pikes Peak I went in search of a story. Well, from Germany that’s not a very easy task. I didn’t have anyone to ask except Google. Continue reading

24h Nürburgring

A concise decision was this year at the 24h race in the great Eifel. but at first. how does it possible, that a racecar with 500HP and AWD can not drive on a bit steep part of the racetrack? exactly, the weather was so horrifying at the beginning of the race, that the organization confirmed to interrupt the race for 3 hours. hail, raindrops bigger than i ever saw. I was at the Carrousel, had a tent from the marshals for saving my equipment, but i was wet everywhere. It doesn’t matter, the fun was going on. the restart was going and 7pm and we can photographing as well  and enjoy the race.
