Unless you’re being paid to race a car or else have the necessary time, cash, and willpower, the only way to drive at speed on the world’s best circuits is through varying degrees of simulation. This can range from the Fast and Furious arcade games in the lobby of most movie theaters circa 2006, to bucket seat setups that ape the G-forces of motorsport on multiple-screen arrays if you’re willing to spend the multiple-Gs on a primo setup.

I prefer having a beer and playing Forza with old touring cars and saying mean things to people when they make unsportsmanlike contact with my CSL, but I’ve been lucky enough to climb a few diamonds on the barrier fences of some pretty cool race tracks in real life too. Those are memories that I’m not alone in making I’m sure, and however unforgettable they may be, it’s not like we’re all sitting around replaying them 24/7. Not that we should either, but if you have a hankering for a piece of artwork that reminds you of the things you’ve witnessed in the past, on YouTube, or are planning to see in person someday, these might be your thing.

Rear View Prints seems to create a lot of automotive art with a focus on sharp lines and geometric layouts, and the recent addition of these blueprint-like portrayals of places like Lime Rock Park, Silverstone, Spa, the Nürburgring, Brands Hatch, and Monza, are a unique take on the shapes we’ve memorized over time. I say this about a lot of the posters and prints that we select for our shop, but thankfully I don’t have to lie while doing so: this is framable material that you can hang anywhere, something that reflects a specific interest of yours that isn’t a fake road sign with fake bullet holes in it that reads “AUTOMOTIVE BRAND parking ONLY”. 

There are 14 available through the links at top and bottom of this page, so if you have some blank walls to fill pick up your favorite circuit or series, or perhaps help your car-enthused co-worker replace the tired-ass picture of a tropical beach sitting on his or her desk with some real inspirational material.

I ordered a poster on 3.14 and can’t get a confirmation on 1) when it will be sent and 2) if they actually have the posters in stock. The response I get from customer service is they are checking with the vendor. At first, I was o.k. with a bit of delay. Now, with the lack of specific information, I’m not so sure I’ll get the poster. They got my ~$100. It would be nice to get a clear response and a poster. Or, something.
