It’s always exciting to get a message from my friend Andrew Bordin, because I know it will involve auto racing. He recently asked me to photograph the media event launching his latest entry into the 2013 GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series. His company AIM Autosport is the reigning 2012 GT Champion and they recently joined forces with R. Ferri Motorsport to form R.Ferri Motorsport and AIM Autosport RACING WITH FERRARI.

Hosted by Ferrari of Ontario/Alberta President Remo Ferri, the event featured a first look at the team’s new Ferrari 458 Italia GT Grand Am race car, as well as the announcement of the drivers for the No. 61 entry. Veteran driver Max Papis will drive with two-time and reigning Rolex Series GT Champion Jeff Segal. Also in attendance was Marco Mattiacci, President & CEO of Ferrari North America who helped unveil the all new 2013 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta at a private reception later that evening.
