Blancpain at Zandvoort: report, gallery and aftermovie.

On the weekend of the 12th to 14th of July (2019), the Blancpain travelling circus hit Zandvoort. Since I’ve been heavily investing my time in Assetto Corsa Competizione (which features the official Blancpain licensed cars) I thought it would be nice to visit a real race for once. I’ve visited Zandvoort once before, but I had never watched a race, never felt the roar of the engines pass through my...

Design: Ferrari 488 GT3

Playing Assetto Corsa Competizione has given me inspiration to convert some of the cars into artwork, starting with Ferrari’s aggressive looking 488 GT3. I’ve uploaded the design to Redbubble, mainly because I myself am going to the Blancpain GT3 races at Zandvoort the 14th of July, and I wanted to wear a shirt based on this design. If you fancy this design yourself, feel free to click on the link...

Feel free to sign up and battle me for the title of F1 Oracle – but first, read on what my prediction will be for the 2017...

Design: Gilles Villeneuve’s 1980 helmet

There are hardly more tragic stories than that of Gilles Villeneuve. The Canadian driver drove his first race in 1977 for McLaren, but was picked up by Ferrari for the final two races of the 1977 season. He won his first race in the following 1978 season at his home grand prix. He came close to winning the 1979 championship, but was plagued with problems in the ’80 and ’81...

Design: Michael Schumacher’s 1994 Helmet (+extra)

Michael Schumacher was, and always will be, my hero. I was born in 1991, the year he made his debut. One of my first memories is watching him drive Formula 1 in 1994 and winning the title that year. I had a slot car set by Carrera which came with a poster of him on the podium in the 1993 season which had been on my bedroom door for about...

Design: Sebastian Vettel’s 2015 Ferrari helmet

Sebastian Vettel is a controversial driver in Formula 1: you either hate him, or love him. Making his debut in 2007 for BMW Sauber as a temporary replacement for the concussed Robert Kubica, Vettel went on to make his full season debut for Toro Rosso in 2008. He scored STR’s first and to date only victory in the soaking wet temple of speed, Monza. He was promoted to Red Bull...

Design: Niki Lauda’s 1984 helmet

Niki Lauda is perhaps among the top three of the most famous drivers F1 has had, next to Schumacher and Senna. The Austrian driver entered Formula 1 in 1971 and had his last season in 1985. Not only is he known for the three world titles he achieved during his career and being the only one doing so with both Ferrari and McLaren, he is probably best remembered by his...
