If you're an Elvis fan, and a car fan, then you surely know this car. And it has finally been restored to its original glory. What a machine.

Inside the cockpit of an LMP2 machine. It's smaller and a tighter fit than you think.

For Nelson's 31st birthday, BMW let him drive a bunch of rare classic cars on alpine mountain roads. Best Bday ever?

Admittedly experiencing the flagstand at Road America is way cool than what this photo shows, it's still a very nice image, with good context and a dramatic look.

Perfect framing with just the right amount of sharpness on the car but with enough blur for a sense of speed. Racing photography 101.
