for the on track action will be at its peak and all the cars
will be being prepared for action. Here we look at the talking
points from a new look prototype field and what we can
expect to see during Le Mans 2017.
Toyota vs Porsche
It is the clash of the titans we’ve all been waiting for. This
year it is slightly different too, with Toyota, for the first time,
bringing three cars to Le Mans. Toyota will be out to right
the wrongs of last year, and try out some new talent too.
The No. 9 car features returnee Nicolas Lapierre, Japanese
Super Formula champion Yuji Kunimoto and WTCC champion
Jose Maria Lopez (who was in the No.7, but has been
moved to the third car after his shunt at Silverstone cost
him a race at Spa, and the experience to go with it).

Minneapolis highlights. New records, new tricks and lot’s
of awesomeness !
MINNEAPOLIS (JULY 2017) Bob Burnquist unexpectedly
announced his retirement from X Games competition
following the Big Air competition at X Games Minneapolis.
Here, he explains why he chose a new path in life.
An X Games legend, Bob has the most medals in the event's
history, with 30. As of Austin 2016, he'll be the only person
to compete at every X Games summer event. The 40-year-old
defending Big Air champ is still going strong, contesting Vert
and Big Air. He opened up his backyard playground to other
skaters, but don't count on the field gaining on him in
Big Air: He owns 8 gold in the discipline. Bob is building
the first vert ramp ever in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro
and loves to fly, including fixed wing, helicopters and now
drones. His two daughters are on two continents, and he
splits his time between the two. "Lots of tricks go down in
my backyard that are never going to happen at X Games,"
says Burnquist. "That's for video progression and that's
always where the real technical progression will be.
Backyard skateboarding has no constraints in the creativity."

ProTalk: 3D Artist Benjamin Nicholas
Ben, it is awesome to talk to you again. Watching your
career grow over the last few years has been really in-
spiring. That said, let’s go back to the start. How the heck
did you first get into 3D modeling?
I was a freshman in high school when I was first intro-
duced to 3d. I had a very close friend who had been doing
it as a hobby for a while, and he handed me a copy of Bryce
5 and Discreet 3ds Max 5. I remember being 13 and opening
Max. My immediate reaction was “I will never be able to un-
derstand this”, so I closed and uninstalled it immediately.
Afterwards, I opened up Bryce and had an easier time.
Keep in mind that it was all just boolean modeling, and that
will give you a general idea of the kind of art I was making.
All that said, I started making shorts in Bryce; and it would
take weekends to render if not longer.
