Phillip Island GP Circuit has to be one of the most scenic venues for a race. And the MotoGP circus is spectacular (did you SEE the race on Sunday?!) here. We really love this photo of Marquez and fans.

Jerez's very odd structure at the beginning of pit lane as always perplexed us. But here it's put in a lovely context with Formula Renault 3.5 testing and the sun.

Even though 2015 DTM champ Pascal Wehrlein might have beached his Mercedes while celebrating, and racked up fines for not taking part in post-race weight checking proceedures and getting out of his car during cool down lap...the photos were good. And that's all we care about, let's be honest.

With no German GP on the F1 calendar this year, we were deprived of this look on the nostalgic Hockenheim pit/administration building. Until now. Nice atmosphere for the championship podium celebrations.

DTM starts can be crazy. And unlucky Gary Paffett (left) got complete thrown to the pit wall.

Sure, burnouts are mainly reserved for NASCAR and V8 Supercars. But Jamie Green knows how to put on a show in his precision tuned Audi DTM.

This is a great frame. Bowing driver with flag and those burnout marks with rubber everywhere. That pretty much sums up NASCAR.

Hands down the top photo of the week. The moment a seagull regretted its decision to take a break on the Phillip Island GP Circuit. It made a hole in Iannone's bike, but the rider went on to finish third in the race. The seagull didn't fare so well unfortunately.
