10. Nothing better than a good pan, with lines that seem like they were painted with just that in mind.

9. Not a real photo, we know, but look at the thought and attention to detail in this fantasy Ferrari LMP1. The only thing bad about this exquisite looking machine is that if (and that's a big if..) Ferrari ever goes to Le Mans, it will be with something far less exciting than this.

6. Dover is unique in that part of the pits dont have a concrete wall separating the cars from the crew/photographers, but an armco. This means photographers can put a wide-angle lens through the gaps and shoot really low vantage points.

3. Start (or restart, as the case may be) shots are always good for ambiance, and a nearly full Dover this past weekend shows this off just right.

1. Intense sky with the scenic (a little) Zandvoort, and those very quaint marshall huts make this one of the nicest atmosphere photos we've seen all year. Just ignore the communications tower on the right. Although it is a familiar part of the landscape.
