CURB x INK 24 Hours of Le Mans

Curb_x_Ink_24h_lemans33

Having been intimately involved with the development of the SRT Viper GTS-R, this years 24 Hours of Le Mans was an event of massive significance. I arranged to meet my cousin David Macey in Paris, and from there we travelled to Le Mans. Dave is co-founder of London’s INK Workshop, and has access to some really nice cameras and lens’s which he put to great use over the weekend. After he returned to London his team set to editing and post processing this beautiful set of images. We set out to try and capture a unique perspective of this grueling event, but in the end I feel like Dave has created a body of work which goes far beyond a simple piece of photo journalism and into the realm of art.

It all seems like a dream now, but these photos do an amazing job of capturing the feeling. I hope you enjoy them.

Massive thanks to Dave and INK for all the hard work, and to SRT Motorsports for your hospitality.

We printed our first Curb T-shirt in 2002. The same year we established the vehicle architecture class at Art Center College of Design and began writing the curriculum and class notes which would eventually become H-Point: The Fundementals of Car Design and Packaging.

Around this time we began formulating the idea for an automotive lifestyle brand which could tie into our passion for automotive design, our experience in the industry, and our love for car culture in general. Curb was a name we’d been kicking around, it had a nice ring to it, and an in automotive design language it represents the ground line, the starting point of a sketch. So we did our research and found out the trademark was available, and then immediately applied for it. It wasn’t long before a goliath came knocking on our door to pick a fight…
