2017 IMSA Spotter Guide now live

The Official 2017 IMSA Spotter Guide is now available to download at its own dedicated page.

The guide will also be available at the events section of IMSA.com

New regs, new cars, new liveries and lots of new driver combination makes the Official Spotter Guide a must. The guide will be updated later in the week with any driver or livery additions (probably after Tech is completed). Livery wise, all except Rebellion have previously been confirmed.

If you are at the circuit, a printed guide/program will be available later in the week.

The guide also features a number of my own liveries.

Thanks to the teams for their help with reference of the guides, to IMSA of course, the proof readers and you for downloading and sharing the guide!

I will be partnering with IMSA again in 2017 to produce their Official Spotter Guide for the series. This will be released in print form (at the track) and online.

The online guide will be available here, at SpotterGuides.com, and a smaller size version at IMSA.com from Tuesday 24th January. This will be kept updated during the week.

The guide will be updated prior to each event and the plan is to have this online on the Monday before the race from Round 2 (Sebring).

Spotter Guides and Andy Blackmore Design join DriveTribe

As you may have seen, a new social media platform has been launched called Drive Tribe. Fronted by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the basic concept is centered around hundreds or groups, or Tribes as they prefer to call them. You can make your own tribe and you can join tribes which interest you.

DriveTribe has the potential to be successful, but we will see.

I was accepted to become a member of Drive Tribe a while back and had a tribe for a while as the platform was tested. Drive Tribe is now live, so welcome you to take a look at the two tribes I have created.

Spotter Guides, as you will have guessed centers on my Spotter Guide series. This is really more of a networking and information page where I announce Spotter Guide releases as I do on Twitter and Facebook.

You can join the Spotter Guide tribe here.

My other Tribe is titled, Liveries & Design, which covers liveries past, present and future. We look at Livery icons and also a review of liveries each month. This is currently an open tribe, so anyone can post.

THANK YOU!

2016, at least in Spotter Guide form is nearing a close, just one more Spotter Guide to be produced for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Finals in Valencia at the beginning of December.

As we are in between the Canadian and American Thanksgiving celebrations, it was only right for me to thank YOU for downloading the guides this year, thanks for ReTweeting, Sharing and Linking the many social media posts or maybe you publisized the Guides in a Blog. Thanks to each and every one of you.

Thank you to the many partners this year. Without there support, there would be no guides.

The realities are, along with ‘Andy Blackmore Design’ this is my career, its what pays the mortgage,  pays the bills, what enables me send my little girl to school. I’m very lucky in that I have a career I love, but I also need to pay the bills so I’m truly thankful.

So, huge  thanks to IMSA, who commission me to produce the online and supply art to their printed Official Spotter/ Fan Guides as well as supply car art for their website, app and merchandise.

In 2016, the partnership extended to supplying the official Spotter Guide for the Mazda Prototype Lites, Porsche GT3 Cup USA and the Porsche GT3 Cup Canada series.

Thank you to Dunlop Motorsport Europe, who in a crowded space, partnered with me on the 2016 Dunlop Le Mans 24Hour Spotter Guide. This partnership included a large print run for fans and VIPs of Dunlop and Travel Destinations. The majority of team timing stands and commentary boxes had the guides taped up. As an example, I counted 10 sightings of the guide in the recent Sir Chris Hoy documentary on BBC.

Thank you to new partners Lamborghini Squadra Corsa and their marketing agency, Centigrade. We have produced guides for North American and European rounds of the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Championship.

I have recently produced a new IMSA commissioned Spotter Guide to join the existing folio of IMSA Spotter Guides. The Mazda Prototype Lites Presented by Cooper Tires is a feeder prototype series for both IMSA and Mazda through their ‘Mazda Road to 24’ program.

Hard copies of the guide will be available in the Lites paddock, or you can download a guide from its new dedicated Prototype Lites page.

This weekend’s IMSA 6 hours of the Glen will see Spotter Guides for EVERY race, including the main event and  Porsche GT3 Cup and Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo. These will be released during Monday once various embargos and liveries have been launched.

Thanks to IMSA for the commission!
