Well, after a long and brutal Detroit winter, racing season is back! I kicked off the year with my first trip to the 12 Hours of Sebring, which in it’s current incarnation is host to the second race in the Patron sponsored North American Endurance Cup and the Tudor United SportsCar Championship.
For half a century spring breakers have flocked to this WWII Air Force base for a race once around the clock, incredibly nice weather, and healthy dose of debauchery.
Check out some photos which I had a ton of fun taking after the here!
Our pals over at INK spent some time at a vintage gasser show a couple months ago, they had mentioned they’d probably come away with some shots for us, but I could never have expected what they’ve delivered here. It’s hard to believe these are even photos! Removing the backgrounds really accentuates the awesome profiles and super high ride heights on these beasts. The signature hand painted graphics also benefit from the lack of visual competition usually found at car events.
There is talk of some limited edition prints, so stay tuned! Until then, read on to check them out.
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.
