Behind the scenes of Porsche racing: Redemption
By Cole Scrogham
The Dempsey/Del Piero American LeMans Series team had gone through plenty before arriving at Laguna Seca. Teething issues related to a new team and cars, new faces and inconsistent driver lineups, as well as a majority of the team not being familiar with the Porsche 911 had led to a difficult start to the season. There had been some bright spots and lots of potential. It was not until the Laguna Seca race that this potential began to gel into some sort of reality, however, as the driving team was back together for the first time since Sebring.

Remembering Frank Lloyd Wright's Bijou
Metropolis
It wasn't a masterwork, but it was the master's work. Every day, hundreds of people walked by the gleaming space, but few may have realized its significance. A hidden gem in plain sight, the Hoffman Auto Showroom at 430 Park Avenue, opened in 1955. It was one of just three Frank Lloyd Wright projects in New York City. And now, it's gone.
