I know there were some conversions of Group-C cars like the Koenig C62, and the Sauer 962 Le Mans. Is this still possible? Are there companies that could carry this out?
Took an actual vacation day to go watch the Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing event. They basically had a closed street course for hot lap sessions. It was a pretty good day. There are 3 more days of other events, but this was the only day of street racing. Because racecar!
So we tastefully lowered them for your enjoyment.
Red car. Puffalump. Yep. Checks out.
Recently I moved down to Virginia for a new job and just happen to be pretty close to a racetrack many of you know ;). This past weekend I was at Virginia International Raceway (VIR). Photographing for the support races, F1600/F2000/Atlantic Championship Series; What can I say about this experience?

Especially this one
So I was out lapping the old hooptie last night at a local track. I was on a cool down lap about to come in because my brakes felt like they were a few laps from completely overheating. Then a couple of 944s came out, one n/a and one turbo... I had to give chase and see if I could get by that turbo...
#1 - Racetrack. End of list.
It’s kind of clear that George Lucas is a pretty big car fan but here’s his senior thesis from his time at the University of Southern California. It’s a good thing he got all this practice shooting fast moving objects like a Lotus 23. Who knows what Star Wars could’ve ended up looking like.
It’s May the 4th and my new job at NASCAR corporate, as a Graphic Designer, required me to do some grueling work...
