9. 201mph only a few inches from the SAFER barrier. 400 miles. You can't deny that there's skill to this.

8. A bit of originality at Sebring, a place that has been photographed from nearly every angle. Bonus points for the 666 on the flickering position light. This is inside turn 1.

2. Have to include a Sebring sunset shot. Like photos at the Nürburgring's Karussel or Spa's La Source hairpin. It's tradition.

1. The clear winner this week. What a dynasty. Every winning Audi at Le Mans since 2000. So very cool for any racing enthusiast. Only two years have been won by non-Audis since then.
