These are the reference photos used to create the face plate for JPM on the Borg Warner Trophy. A fun behind the scenes look at what it takes to make (or keep adding to) one of the most iconic trophies on earth.

Something about the fans and flags in this image reminds us of racing in Europe (especially Le Mans) in the 70s and 80s. Some would argue current top-tier racing is a little stale/emotionless. For the Argentina-TC series, fans still have the passion (and access...)

Since Star Wars is EVERYWHERE right now, we thought it would be fun to join in. A Stormtrooper Alfa? Sure, why not!

Sunsets are a sure-fire way to get our attention. Looks like the photographers covering the Sepang 12 Hours had miserably wet conditions...until the sun came out just in time for the sunset. Magic hour (more like 15 minutes).

A lot of racing history here. This makes the list because that back row of Mercs is very dear to our hearts.

Guaranteed sense of vertigo when shooting this angle from the Yas Viceroy Hotel at the Yas Marina Circuit. Great results though.

We stopped counting how many cars are actually in this frame. This rivals our famous annual Le Mans group car shot. Impressive just by the sheer number of cars in one shot.
