3. A GTLM winning the Petit Le Mans outright. True joy on those faces, especially Nick Tandy (middle) who also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year. Good year for Nick.

2. Corsica is a beautiful place. And by extension, the photos from Rallye France held on the island are just as spectacular. A photographer is tempted to shoot almost everything wide, so as to get as much of the scenery in the photos as possible. Bonus points for helicopter presence.

1. You may have noted a slight theme in this week's selection. A lot of dark/light juxtapositions. This one was quite the artistic success we think.
