Photography by Muoi Tran • For nearly a decade, StanceWorks has followed, and to the best of our ability, supported Amir Bentatou and his racing efforts. From support on his original time attack-focused E36 build, to Protomachine involvement on the latest rendition of his NSX, we’ve been proud to be at least a small part of his journey. Today, we celebrate his victory, not only in his class, but overall, in Global Time Attack’s second event of 2020.
I haven’t properly been behind the camera shooting cars in about 2 years now. Once I graduated college, I was in a desperate search for a job, and that took nearly all of my time, pulling me away from the craft entirely. I did a few side sessions for a high end “dealership” if you will, and that was pretty much it. Once I finally landed my job, it of course took over my life.
The sheer bredth of cars at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is nothing short of breathtaking. From 1920s open-cockpit behemoths, to the fastest Group C prototypes from the mid 1980s, there’s a bit of everything for everyone. Moreover, on track, the cars take on an entirely-new persona, coming to live through motion and sound. However, if you look closely, you’ll find a car or two within the paddock of Monterey that never make it onto the tarmac.
