I attended the Frankfurt Motor Show this week, and it was my second time covering the event. While the show didn’t have the multitude of incredible debuts like Geneva, there were some pretty important supercar unveilings. Perhaps the biggest was the debut of the production Porsche 918 Spyder, but Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Audi all had new metal to show off as well. Head on over to Autoblog.com to see much of my coverage of the show.

I’m at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week, and while things don’t officially kick off until tomorrow, I got started early at the reveal of the Jaguar C-X16 Concept at a private party at the Palais Thurn und Taxis. The picture above was by far my favorite, but you can see the rest over at Autoblog.com.

History is made (and captured) as the ten minute barrier falls at Pikes Peak

The summit of Pikes Peak can be a harsh environment, even in June. It’s also not necessarily the best place to take photos at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, especially considering the scenery available on the rest of the mountain. So why would I spend 10 hours dealing the thin air at 14,000 feet, near-freezing temperatures and 40 mph winds for ten hours? To capture history.

It was inevitable that the ten minute barrier would eventually be broken at Pikes Peak, and with the extra pavement added this year, it was almost certain that one of the top contenders in the Unlimited Class would break the mark. Reigning king of the mountain Monster Tajima was up to the task, smashing his own previous record with a time of 9:51.278. I was there to witness him cross the finish line, with camera in hand to capture the historic event. It was worth it.

The second and final day of the Spectre 341 Challenge is a wrap. After scouting the route a few more times I found a fantastic location, and probably ending up spending too much time there. Even so, I liked these photos better than those from day 1. You can see a selection of images below.

Spectre 341 Challenge photos, day 1

Day 1 of the Spectre 341 Challenge is in the books. This is my first time shooting the event, so there was a steep learning curve about what locations to pick. It’s pretty difficult to walk to different parts of the course, so once you pick a corner, you’re stuck for a couple hours! The scenery is pretty amazing, though, so I tried to take as many wide angle photos as possible to keep the mountains and the winding road in frame. You can see a selection of photos from day 1 after the jump.
