Unheil on Pikes Peak

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 […]

Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum

After the historic cars were done running on Saturday, there really wasn’t much left to do. Luckily the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is located within the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And heads up, this is a history heavy story.

The 100th Indy 500

Well here we are, 100 years in the making. Well not years exactly, but runnings. The first 500 was held in 1911, but six races were missed due to World War I and World War II. Here we are in 2016, the biggest Indy 500 ever, and easily one of the biggest races ever, period.

VLN the N24h Forecast

The VLN racing championship is one of the most notorious series in German motorsport. Among others, the legendary 24h Nürburgring race is one of ten events held by the Verein Langstreckenmeisterschaft Nürburgring. That’s why all eyes lay one the first event of the season, which will give you a pretty solid prediction of who will […]

The Ohio Mile

A few weeks ago I got a text from Alex Wong asking how close I was to the Ohio Mile. I instantly went online and went to the East Coast Timing Association’s website to see when the next event was. I haven’t been to an Ohio Mile event since 2013, and with Hot Rod Magazine […]

WEC start with ART

Between snow, rain, wind and sun, all seasons in one weekend, that’s …. Silverstone? Whatever, that’s not correct. Anyway I’m slowly used to the experience ‘weather conditions do not match their area.’ My last conversation with Andrew was those, and them summary was, “let’s be different from the ordinary photographs’ Common ones provide the results, […]

Formula D Long Beach – New Blood

Chelsea DeNofa has as reputation for being a completely insane driver. His checkers-or-wreckers style has usually landed him more on the wreckers side of things, for example when he and Tyler McQuarrie took a wall ride in New Jersey and again when he ripped his fuel lines and caught on fire while crashing into McQuarrie in […]

Scenes From Sebring

For the second time this year I headed down to Florida for racing. This time for the final 12 hours of what is known as the 36 hours of Florida. The second stop on the 2016 IMSA Weather Tech Sports Car Championship and the second round of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup; The […]

24 Hours of Daytona

The night has a certain calm about it. A time to sit and reflect on the days events. It was noisy, the smell of race fuel was in the air and yet it was still calming. When I took this photo the race was already hours old. I was tired; everybody was. This was only […]

Best of Campbell 2015

December 1st, 2014 I had moved back to New York, shot a few events and bought myself a new camera.  But 2015 is when I became an official Life Blaster and things really started getting interesting. It was snowing in NY that March so my first event for the year I escaped the cold and went […]

RM Motorsports

Last year I was invited to an open house at RM Motorsports in Wixom, Michigan. Before that day, I only knew vaguely of RM and what they did, but I wasn’t ready for the shock I got when I entered their showroom. A couple weeks ago I got a message on Facebook from someone who […]

Best of Lapinski 2015

As the sun sets on 2015 I find myself going through photos that I feel are the best ones I have taken over the past year. Thing is I hate most of them. Might sound dumb but it is a way of growing and hopefully building off what you did wrong and becoming a stronger […]

Racing is Easy and Nothing Ever Goes Wrong

This was, without a doubt, the best 25 Hours of Thunderhill I’ve been to. The stars must have aligned or something. Perfect weather, awesome cars, and hanging out with great people all made 2015 one to remember.

The Race of Gentlemen

We’re finally approaching the winter season and that usually means less car events.  Luckily for me one day fellow Blaster Eric Delaney messaged me about this east coast event called “The Race of Gentlemen”, a.k.a. T.R.O.G, in Wildwood, NJ.  Without hesitation I found the event website, watched a short video on the event and once […]

Scenes From The Lake Superior Performance Rally

The final round of the 2015 Rally America National Championship; The Lake Superior Performance Rally. Brought with it crisp fall temperatures and wonderful colors. For the second year in a row I made the trip to cover the event, It rained and even snowed for most of the ride up. I was hoping it wouldn’t […]

WEC at the Nürburgring

Imagine this: a hell of a lot of prototypes that rarely resemble anything you see elsewhere on the track featuring various engine layouts with more than 1000 hp each who all race in one single event among different classes over the course of six hours. That’s FIA WEC – an impressive endurance race series which dwarfs […]

SCCA Rally Sprint at Team O’Neil Rally School

Back in September I found myself on the road again.  This time I was headed up to New Hampshire, specifically to Team O’Neil Rally School for the SCCA’s 2nd Rally Sprint.  About 6, almost 7 hours and the final stop?  A parking lot in Littleton, NH where early tech was supposed to take place, the night […]
