Coming soon… FIA WEC – Prologue 2018 gallery

I’m currently working hard to get te first gallery of the FIA WEC Prologue 2018 at Circuit Paul Ricard up on the site. Here’s already a small sneak peek…

Starting Friday: FIA WEC Prologue action from Paul Ricard!

Not long now until the new FIA WEC Superseason kicks off with the Prologue at Paul Ricard: Friday the 6th, at 10 o’clock the light goes green. It will be the first time contenders of the 2018/2019 Superseason, which reaches its climax during the 2019 24hrs of Le Mans, cross swords with each other in their new cars!

LMP1

In LMP1 Toyota is the only remaining factory-team fielding two LMP1-hybrids. Their updated TS050 hybrid is challenged by no less than four other chassis from different privateer teams: Rebellion with their R13, SMP racing and Dragonspeed with their BR1-chassis, CEFC with the Ginetta P1 and of course ByKolles with their CLM P1/01 chassis. Can the privateer teams challenge the Toyota?

LMP2

Two new contestants in the LMP2 category where Larbre steps up from GT Am (with their amazing Chevrolet C7) to the LMP2 with a Ligier JSP217, and Racing Team Nederland makes the jump from ELMS to the World Championship with their Dallara  P217. It will be interesting to see how the newcomers compare to the more experienced teams of TDS, Dragonspeed, Jackie Chan DC and Signatech Alpine and their Oreca chassis.

GT Pro

Many new cars in the GT Pro category with of course eyecatcher BMW with their brandnew M8 GTE. The car already made an appearance in the IMSA races at Daytona and Sebring, with encouraging results (Pole at the 12hrs of Sebring…), but how will it perform against the also brandnew Aston Martin Vantage, the new Ferrari 488 GTE, the Porsche 911 and the Ford GT in the WEC-field?

GT Am

In GT Am three new teams make their debut this superseason: Project 1 Racing, which earned his laurels in the Porsche Supercup, fields a Porsche 911 RSR, MR Racing with their Ferrari 488 GTE and TF Sport, well known in the British GT scene with their Aston Martin Vantage GTE.

2017 VLN 8 – Nürburgring Nordschleife

It was my first time shooting at the Nordschleife: what a great experience! So many cars and so many different angles to shoot from. I’ll definitely come back soon!

In the race, Dries Vanthoor became the youngest winner at the VLN ever at 19 years of age. Together with his teammate Markus Winkelhock they fought off numerous attacks from the Black-Falcon Mercedes AMG.

In the meantime BMW-Team Schnitzer gave the new BMW M6 GTE its track-debut, with Philipp Eng at the wheel.

Full size images will soon be added to my Flickr-page!

2017 Blancpain GT Sprint Series @ Nürburgring

The championship deciding race through the Eiffel was quite eventful (= understatement of the year…). First, race leaders and at that moment virtual champions Franck Perera and Maxi Buhk had to park their #84 Mercedes AMG alongside the track after an outing… Championship lost…

Then, the next virtual champions Dries Vanthoor and Marcel Fässler in the #5 WRT Audi were awarded a penalty for hitting a mechanic during their visit to the pits… That allowed the #17 Audi driven by Stuart Leonard and Robin Frijns to move up into 2nd position behind the #2 Audi of Marcus Winkelhock and Will Stevens. With a daring but successful move by Frijns they eventually secured the Sprint Series Championship Crown!

Find the full gallery here (there will be more pics added later, so be sure to check back later) or take a look at the “Events” section.

Full size images will soon be added to my Flickr-page!

2017 DTM Race 11 & 12 @ Circuit Zandvoort

Little over a week ago the DTM circus moved seaside to the Circuit in the Dunes at Zandvoort. BMW and Audi both excelled, scoring one race win each with Timo Glock on Saturday and Mike Rockenfeller on Sunday. Mercedes had a difficult weekend, struggling for pace.
