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.
Over the past few years I’ve really gotten into wheels. Their design, their purpose, and of course the cars they’re on. While I was walking around RM’s open house looking at all the different disciplines represented, I thought why not make a post with of all the wheels. Continue reading
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.
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.
I don’t know what my problem is, but it seems no matter where I go it rains. Usually it’s a little annoying dealing with rain, but when it’s the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Mid Ohio, it’s awesome. Continue reading
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.
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.
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
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.
Gridlife. I’m not really sure how to sum it all up. Drifting, time attack, high performance driving education, concerts, car show, camping and partying. I guess that’s it in a nutshell. Continue reading
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.
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
Before we actually got to Goodwood, we spent some time in London. So, since London is such a massive city with so much to see, I think it’ll be easier to just post a ton of photos.
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.
here we see, only small hail, but on other parts to the area were the hailballs more bigger than here u can see
Wet racing conditions hardly affected the speed
now it is going back to the track again
it is not only a Ferrari, it is more than that. the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, an American team provides us with the beautiful SCG003.
before some years I never saw the tire guys who check the temperature, Now it is part which I like every time gladly
after the sunset, the dark racehorse begin, first, drivers change and new Fuel for the ROWE M6
Thursday evening, it was not a fun for all, it was raining catalogs, but the driver’s life that.this is the special Nürburgring feeling.
tail rail lights
a short nap, and we went to the track again….
one of my loveliest sunsets in my life…
after so many hours you’re sometimes tired
sparkles are springing
The jumping place, this year i was gone the first time to their , incredible feeling.
the Lexus do the jump as well
Mercedes did it..
they enjoy it so much, the winners.
Gittin and Forsberg continued defending the establishment in New Jersey, meeting each other in the final battle. Gittin came out on top, tying Sam Hübinette for the series record of 10 event wins. Amazingly, Hübinette won his tenth event before Gittin had even won his first.
