Revs Institute: Collier Collection

If you ever find yourself in or around Naples, Florida, do yourself a favor and plan a trip to the Revs Institute. I’ll just say it now, this is an incredibly wordy, history filled look through the collection. If you want to read more on their collection and see the other cars, check out their […]

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 […]

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.

Spring in Michigan

We had a pretty decent winter when I look back, but the last month or so, it got a little annoying. Cold, cloudy, rain and snow. Two weeks ago it was in between 20 and 30 degrees Fahrenheit. For being the second weekend of April, people weren’t too happy. But this being Michigan, this weekend, two week […]

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, […]

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.

Back to the Warehouse

Living in Michigan is a double-edged sword, anywhere in the all four seasons is really, but Michigan seems to be slightly different. As I always say, we’re the home of the Motor City, we basically have fuel in our veins. But when November or December rolls around we loose the ability to enjoy our passion. […]

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 […]

When It Rains…Petit Le Mans 2015

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. There were supposed to be sunny skies, wonderful temps, and a beautiful sunset. This was the scenario that played out in my head in the weeks leading up to my trip to the 2015 Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The final race of the Tudor United Sportscar […]

Historic Festival 33 at Lime Rock

After my two week adventure to Texas, for Formula Drift with Bohan, I had another event lined up that I’ve been waiting to get to.  Just a few hours northwest in Connecticut during the first weekend of September is when you’ll find Lime Rock Park flooded with historic cars as old as 1920, running up […]

Car and Driver Cars and Coffee

I live about half an hour away from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ann Arbor is an interesting city with the University of Michigan right in the center. It’s a high-tech city that is filled with businesses and shops that cater to the high-tech community and university students. Its also home to a few well known car […]

The Mid Ohio Vintage Grand Prix

Every weekend in the summer there’s racing all over the globe. And usually I’m upset because I can never get enough racing, and I don’t think I ever will. But recently there was one of the best weekends this year. TUDOR was at Watkins Glen for their six hour race, Pirelli World Challenge was racing […]
