Hot Wheels Motorsports

I started my Hot Wheels collection to basically keep the nostalgia of having once participated as a Motorsport marshal going… until I could return again to my racing hobby. Soon I will return, but the little die cast cars have been so much fun I cannot believe I didn’t start this sooner… Meanwhile I always wanted to link the photos of the cars in my collection to the real race cars I came across during my travels.

And here it goes:

Looks familiar? BMW M3 GT2 in ALMS:

Ducati 1199 Panigale at MotoGP Indianapolis Grand Prix:

My first exposure to Porsche 962 Historics, back when I thought they were CanAm racers lol:

My first intro to Mazda 787B at Le Mans France, and yes it did a flying lap so I heard it scream too:

Not quite the same car, but close enough BMW Z4 /M at ALMS Northeast GP Lime Rock:

Again not the same vintage Porsche but definitely the correct Falken livery:

Aston Martin Vantage GT3 in Malaysia:

One of my favorite series Porsche 911 GT3 Cup:

The Daytona 24hr Classic featuring HSR – Historic Racing Series was a mindblowing experience where everything raced from Fiat 500 to Ford GT, to Porsche 962 in various configurations, to Porsche 935/78 to BMW M1 Procar, etc:

The Roborace driverless concept racer is an interesting idea I got to check out in Brooklyn and Montréal for their ePrix:
