Sahlen’s Six Hour at the Glen Spotter Guides by Andy Blackmore

Don’t know about all ya’ll but I’ll be spending this Forth of July Upstate New York, volunteering yet another Sahlen’s Six Hour at the Glen… you know the race weekend is near because Andy Blackmore has released a whole series of new spotter guides for this event. And because IMSA is pretty awesome, there are spotter guides commissioned for nearly every series racing!

So go to SpotterGuides.com or IMSA.com and download them:

What can you download?

  • WeatherTech Sports Car Championship spotter guide
  • Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge spotter guide
  • Porsche GT3 Cup North America spotter guide
  • Porsche GT3 Cup Canada spotter guide
  • Lamborghini Super Trofeo spotter guide

OR… do what I do, and stop by one of the many info booth’s at Watkins Glen International and pick up a spotter guide as a souvenir to take home… those are my favorite!

Spotter Guide for Michelin GT Challenge at VIRginia International Raceway by Andy Blackmore

I haven’t done these in forever, but thanks to Andy Blackmore and his Spotter Guides facebook page that alerts me every time he creates a new one, I’m happy to share the IMSA Michelin GT Challenge spotter guides for VIR next weekend… where I’ve weaseled my way to finally volunteer.

Yay!

Download the hi-res version of the spotter guide directly from Andy’s site: www.spotterguides.com/portfolio/16imsa/ or do what I do and follow him on facebook:  www.facebook.com/SpotterGuides/

Thanks Andy!

Oh and if you do go to the event, Andy is the official IMSA spotter guide maker, so pick up one of the booklets from the track. I have a whole collection of them now.

Update: Andy also added Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Porsche GT3 Cup spotter guides to the Download list:  www.spotterguides.com/portfolio/16_lambo_st_us/ Now if only he could create the Mazda MX-5 Cup spotter guide for us to have this or next season, I’d be real happy!

Detroit Grand Prix Spotter Guide by Andy Blackmore

With a few days left to go until the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, Andy Blackmore Designed has released another amazing spotter guide for the IMSA events of the weekend.

Download your copy from: www.facebook.com/SpotterGuides/ or pick up a printed version at the gates during the event, which is what I typically try to do. As a huge fan of Andy I have a whole collection of his spotter guides from various events that I’ve volunteered.

Be sure to pick up an official IndyCar spotter guide too… and as the TransAm fields are growing HUGE! I hope they come up with a spotter guide also… only recently I’ve noticed Pirelli World Challenge has started offering spotter guides for their events, I was lucky to pick one up at Lime Rock (and I’m talking about an actual spotter guide and not the magazine program that they printed at the beginning of the season and distribute throughout the year).

See you in Detroit… a lovely city!

Spotter Guides for WEC / IMSA at COTA (6 hours of Circuit of the Americas)

The spotter guide for the WEC 6 hours of the Circuit of the Americas is now live on the FIA WEC web site, and could be downloaded free of charge from this link:  http://www.fiawec.com/wpphpFichiers/1/1/ressources/Spotter_Guide/2015/Spotter_Guide_WEC_COTA.pdf

As it turns out this is not an Andy Blackmore Design creation, which is weird. I’ve been a huge fan of Andy Blackmore since day one of my volunteering in Motorsports and have build quite a collection of his printed spotter guides that I’ve saved as keepsakes from various events I worked around the world. Apparently Andy has got competition now. Who’s designing  WEC official guides? Does it really matter? Competition is good!

I will post an update once Andy’s version becomes available, along with his official IMSA spotter guide when it is released in the next few days. In the meantime, enjoy the “official” version from the FIA WEC.

UPDATE 9/14:

Andy Blackmore Design has released his version of the unofficial WEC spotter guide and the official IMSA spotter guide fro the COTA event:

Now besides the obvious: cars facing the opposite direction, can anyone tell the difference between the two versions of the spotter guides?

2015 Le Mans 24h Spotter Guide by Andy Blackmore available for download

Andy Blackmore has made the 2015 Le Mans 24h spotter guide available for download well ahead of the event for those of you attending, watching remotely or marshaling the event to get familiarized with.

Andy’s spotter guides are my absolutely favorite, and even though I won’t be attending the event, I can’t help but recommend others to check out his work for themselves:
