Bull Pen

Lone Star Le Mans, Circuit of the Americas, Austin, TX

This is how I like my race cars: hot, smoldering, smelling of fuel, oil, and burning stuff. Clag all over the grille and ductwork; scuffed body panels and jagged edges of carbon fiber barely concealed by field repairs. Welcome to parc fermé.

Top: 2nd place in LMGTE, the No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari 488.

FIA race stewards check for compliance to the technical regulations, in this instance the No. 43 RGR Sport Ligier JS P2.

Debugging begins while the motor is still hot. A crew member works on the No. 36 Signatech-Alpine A460s.

LMP1 and LMP2 cars look fast standing still. The No. 8 Audi Sport Team Joest R18 appears angry at being kept in a pen.

Top of the class. Aston Martin Racing racks a win in both the LMGTE Pro and Am classes with the Nos. 95 and 95 Vantage V8s respectively.
