This weekend brings with it one of the greatest races of the year… the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
I figured this would also be a nice time to launch a pic that I did of a 1981 Porsche 935 race car that I created as part of an ongoing collection of historic race cars. Self promo aside, I am actually excited to wake up at 2am this weekend to watch the starting flag drop and possibly watch the whole race (although I have still yet to stay awake through the whole race to date).
A number of years ago I had the great privilege to fly out to France on a moment’s notice and shoot a campaign for Chevrolet. While it made from some great images, somehow I woke up in some French guy’s front yard in the middle of France…. long story, blog about it is located here.
This year will hopefully be less entertaining away from the track, and more excitement in the race. Audi has dominated this race for over 10 years now, let’s all see if Porsche can change this. With Formula 1 in a state of complete disarray, here’s to hoping that Le Mans can bring joy to the many race fans around the world.
Safe driving racers.
