The Norma M30-NISSAN of Duqueine Engineering at ELMS

The last weekend of European Le Mans Series was at a "new" racetrack. It was the return to the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve since the 2011, Le Mans Series - Algarve 1000 Km

The Duqueine Engineering was present with 2 cars at LMP3, with the rain present for several times during the test day, the qualification and race day the sun was king at the Algarve.

The qualification ended with P9 place for the #8 car and P10 was the final result after the race. The #8 car bring it's first points.

The amazing TF Sport 2017 Season finale at Portugal.

A fantastic season for the TF Sport team, crossing in 2017. The 2017 season ended up in Portugal at the amazing carrousel of Autodromo International Algarve #AIA. 

Nicki Thiim made the best of the 3 drivers, starting P5 for the final round. A new race track for ELMS championship, a new carrousel and a fantastic weather that the south of Portugal always gives us. 

Hard fight with the #77 Porsche of Proton Competition and what a race it was from the TF Sport guys, the Aston Martin Vantage was just pedal to the metal. A third place on the final race wasn't enough for the BIG finale everybody wanted. TF Sport Director said "...has been a tough, difficult but ultimately a successful campaign in the ELMS...", "We pushed as hard as we could with very good drivers, but sometimes you can only do what you do. Congratulations to the team, it’s been a great year and one we are very proud of.” 

Well done guys...and see you in 2018.

My 1st Photobook, by saal-Digital

So, it was time to give a chance and make a small Photobook of my recent trip to Belgium and the amazing 24 Hours of Spa.

As a Motorsport photographer, I'm always looking for the perfect a best final product I can get and seal-Digital just got me what I needed.

I've search the web for a Photobook supplier and saw the Sale Digital website. Looked for the different options and finished product and like it a lot. Simple and very fast website with all the options on the right place and easy to access. 

The software is always my concern, since I use Apple and many Photobook suppliers do not have OSx option, but only Windows.  Although, Sail-Digital also provides a direct-upload function. Well done guys...

Easy to use, but still needs some improvement with the workflow and preview. I 've got my photobook just the way I've imagined, thank you for that saal-Digital.
Fast and easy to finished and get the order on the way.

The wait was "killing" me, but a few days after the Photobook arrived,

The Cover has a fantastic finish and impressive color depth. Really happy with the result, but hey...lets looks on the inside.

Love the colors, stunning bright white, vivid colors and that lay-flat binding is just great.

Just can't stop to view my new Photobook over and over again. The finish look on the edges and the fantastic touch is really impressive. The 26 pages book get to the end so fast, that I'm already thinking/imagine a new bigger Photobook with more pages and different layout and finish. 

Give it a try if you got any doubts on your next Photobook, http://www.saal-digital.com

They've return one last time.

That's right...for the last time the ELMS crew are returning to Estoril Circuit, the very one and only place where Ayrton Senna made is 1st victory at the wheel of the Lotus (nostalgic moment, sorry about that). 

In 2017 the ELMS will be doing the Algarve "carrousel", new challenges and adventures awaits, but lets see for now what the 2016 edition will brings us.
