Today, BMW has unveiled the latest product of their racing efforts: the 2016 M6 GTLMs in their final liveries. Numbered 25 and 100, and emblazoned with colorways and designs of heritage and importance, the pair of cars is set to make their racing debut this weekend at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. Tomorrow, Andrew departs for Florida, where he’ll set up trackside and photograph them on their way to what we hope will be their first win.
It was nearly eight months ago that Project CARS reached its official launch for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Upon its entry to the market, we gave our first impressions, praising the game for its no-holds-barred take on the challenges of racing.
It’s that time once again: we’re in the final week of 2015 and the year is finally coming to a close. With just days to go until we welcome 2016, Andrew and I are both taking the time to put together our year-end highlight reels. Each passing year offers new growth, and 2015 was no different, despite how quickly it seems to have passed. From our adventures at home, to our journeys afar, 2015 was a year to remember. Fortunately, there’s photos to show for it.
“Would you like to see the E9?” I was asked. We had just finished our tour of the H&R factory, and shortly after, our original itinerary had us on our way back to Essen for the final days of the Essen Motor Show. The prospect of seeing an E9 – Christian Heine’s E9 – was alluring, as I was certainly expecting a nice car. However, through the years, I’ve seen my fair share; predictably, I wasn’t jumping at the opportunity. Interested? Sure. But not enthralled.
It was more than two years ago that my relationship with the team at H&R began. Ever since, it has grown more and more clear that beyond producing world class suspension components, H&R is a brand owned, operated, and driven by automotive enthusiasts. Their passion for cars and the driving experience is usurped only by their drive to produce springs and shocks of the highest caliber and quality, not only in their homeland of Germany, but in the world.
