Grassroots drifting in Ontario has one major hub. Shannonville. Its not the best facility, it’s in the boonies, its muddy, drivers act like dickbags in the pits but it’s where the majority of the Ontario drifters show up. The chicken fingers and poutine are actually pretty good though. Steve, nor Danny nor Devo had the opportunity to drive this past weekend so the 5 of us, including Brian, packed into Danny’s company van and headed east to Shanny. We were later joined by Mauncho, who drove from Ottawa, CPT as usual. Mike Catell brought his new E46 to slay so we joined him in the pits.
Somehow, 4 people were convinced to get into the car with Mike for some track time. No deaths, and the car looked way lower with 800+ lbs of meat in it.
The Quebecors seem to do everything to the nth degree when it comes to cars. Somehow even with the stricter laws, crappier roads and shittier winters, they comes through with the craziest builds, cars and attitude. Guillaume is a prime example. His Dodge Ram lipped FC Rx-7 is Quebocoix Qrazy. “I wanted the front lip to look stupid.”
I’m surprised the E36 chassis isn’t more popular. They’re priced the same as 240s now and offer more power and more stock steering angle and less rust. This fully caged and boosted example will hopefully convince more people to buy E36s.
This 240 desperately needs a way to dissipate the smoke. His problem seemed significantly worse than the other cars.
I’m not too good at capturing action drift shots so I like sticking to the pits. There are cool cars there too. Mauncho was somehow able to capture some good actions shots though. And Danny grabbed a few as well.
