When I got two hashtag stickers for the Porsche 991 GT3 before going out on the trip – #gt3tour and @getpalmd – it was mainly with Monaco in mind. I knew that during the dates of Top Marques there would be car spotters in every corner of the streets around Monte Carlo. I was hoping that by placing the stickers on the windows a few of them would use the hashtag, or tag me, so I could that way easily find the photos of the GT3. It worked like I wanted it to work and now I have a fantastic collection of photos from Monaco of the 991 GT3 spotted by others – a big thank you to all of the photographers for sharing!
Obviously you drive press cars for selfish reasons – I book them because I want to drive and shoot them. But at the same time I enjoy if the car I drive can get as much exposure as possible and in the case of the GT3 I feel it got the attention it deserved, and hopefully the list of people who daydream of racing yellow GT3:s grew with a few after seeing and hearing the car on the streets of Monaco.
Enjoy a few of my favourite shots found online! Now the question is what should I drive to Monaco next April… ;-)
