On Saturday, March 19, 2016, Pipo Derani sealed up the second consecutive race win for 2016 in the No. 2 Tequila Patrón ESM Honda Ligier JS P2, winning the 64th annual 12 Hours of Sebring. The No. 4 Corvette won in the GTLM class after their sister car, the No. 3 Corvette collided with the No. 911 Porsche 911, taking them both out of contention and ending the race for the No. 911. The new Ferrari F88 GT3 claimed its first victory in the GTD class with the No. 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488. (more…)

With March arriving this week, the Rolex 24 is now behind us and we’re looking forward to the 12 Hours of Sebring. This seemed like a great opportunity for me to offer some advice for those wanting to photograph there and at similar events. When I first attended Sebring last year, I searched online for tips on what to bring to the track and how to go about watching the race in the best, most enjoyable way. My results were a bit hit and miss at the time, so I managed as well as I could from what I’d found. But this year, I decided to write a sort of unofficial guide for others seeking to attend the race. (more…)
NASCAR is a form of motorsport that often gets a bad rap from some car enthusiasts. It’s easy to dismiss it as a dull overload of a marketing ad blitz, with cars simply running in circles (at Daytona, they refer to it as a tri-oval). I’d never really followed NASCAR closely and hadn’t watched a race on TV since Dale Earnhardt Sr. was alive, but I was curious. Why is it so popular? Perhaps something wasn’t translating well from first hand experience to broadcast. Time to open the mind and step out of my comfort zone, so I decided to venture out for my first NASCAR experience, the 2016 Daytona 500. (more…)
It all started as a quick decision. The Wednesday before the annual 24 hour race in Daytona, I decided to attend the Rolex24. This year’s race would be the racing debut of the new Ford GT supercar, and there was no way I was going to miss the opportunity to capture some photographs of it. Little did I know it would be such an exciting and unusual race. (more…)
Feeling groggy this Monday? Well, push play and get ready to enjoy the chill up your back, as the sound of the rotary buzz and brap flows from your speakers. In this new video, Evo reviews the RX-7 racecar which won the Spa 24 Hours in 1981.
If you were watching the Goodwood Festival of Speed yesterday, you may have seen the GT350R do a little shimmy on it’s way up the hill. Friend Tyler Brand had a funny idea of adding it to an existing meme, and our friend Dan Sabol put it together, and behold, a new version of the “Shaq vs cat” meme is born. Dan has a gift for these, previously creating the F1-inspired Alonso gif.
Over the weekend, Porsche and Audi fought it out all night in the annual 24 Hours of Le Mans. Porsche would claim victory with the top two spots of the podium going to Porsche teams. I was rooting for them, as I’m admittedly more of a Porsche fan than an Audi fan, and Audi has been the dominant team to beat for the past few years. I had the race streaming on the tablet in the garage on Saturday, while I fought with replacing 20-year old Miata trim, with pieces from a slightly newer example. More on that later. This race marks the 83rd running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and for Porsche it is the first outright win since 1998, in the 919 Hybrid Le Mans Prototype, a car which was just introduced last year.
