Just the Way I See It: FIA WEC Mexico City

Story by Vickie Miller. Photo by RGR Sport. Nueva aventura is Spanish for new adventure which is exactly how my recent trip to Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez could be described.  I have visited several resort-type destinations in Mexico, but this was my first trip to Mexico City. When the FIA WEC (World Endurance Challenge) race was added to the 2016 schedule, my interest was immediately peaked and I was planning my trip.  I had wanted to visit this track when the NASCAR Xfinity series raced there from 2005 to 2008, and this track is very popular for the F1 racing...

Just the Way I See It: 24 Hours of Le Mans

Story and photo by Vickie Miller I returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans (Le Mans 24) this year with a new nervous excitement as I would watch my favorite team, Michael Shank Racing (MSR), on the Circuit de la Sarthe for the first time.  Leading up to race week, the social media outlets and news television portrayed a bleak view of the looming transportation strike in France. Flights could be canceled, trains not moving, maybe even the local Le Mans tram system was in jeopardy.  With the EURO2016 soccer (football) event starting, a strike could be national...

Just the Way I See It: FIA WEC at Silverstone

Story by Vickie Miller photo by Thomas Lake of TL Photographic Works When I start an article covering a track (or this case, circuit) which I have attended and written before, I review the article to see what comments or complaints may have changed from the prior year.  In reviewing my 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Silverstone article, much of this year was the same.  My conclusion, Silverstone remains awesome. Silverstone Circuit is located northwest of London near the little village of Northamptionshire which is beautiful, lush, and green country side with sheep farms along the road to...
