Fitted 2014

There are 3 shows we never miss.  Eurokracy, H2Oi and Fitted.   We do everything that was can to help Dave put on a great show.  We will once again have a booth setup with stickers and tees on offering.  Geoff’s A4 will be featured in our booth. We are also hoping to get a few more cars into the indoor venue  The venue will take place at the Brampton Fairgrounds, and it is booth indoors and outdoors. The indoor section will be offered to the chosen and is much bigger than last year.  The registration and selection process are already underway.  LINK.

There were some complaints about the gravel last year.  However with the indoor section being that much larger this year, if your car is good enough to be inside, it probably will be.

VAG EVENT 2013

Winter needs to end asap.  This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season.  This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.

CIAS 2014

Early February means one thing for us…. we get to attend press day for the Canadian International Autoshow.   We are privileged to be accredited media for the event.  Roaming the show floor with only press minus the hustle and bustle of the general public is a totally different experience.  We are allowed to take much better photos and get a more in depth and personal experience with most of the cars.  We’re not in the market for a 6 figure luxury sedan anytime soon, but it’s nice pretending for a day.

The Mclaren P1 is hands down THE one car you need to see at the CIAS.  It is the new bedroom poster king.  Taking over from our  F40, 959, Countach, and F1 posters.  Pfaff also brought out their MP4-12C Spa-F and roadster to the super car hall.  While the Heffner Turbo R8, Porsche 964 Turbo and Mercedes SLS Roadster were among their other display cars in their other display.

One would think racecars standing still are a sad sight.  They unfortunately can`t be racing all of the time.  Luckily they look just as fast standing still.  Can`t get enough splitters, diffusers, wings, toe hooks, centre locks.

Road cars and concepts make up most of the show floor.  The last few photos show off an awesome paint finish from Ferrari.  Also great shades of blue from BMW and Subaru.

WEC 2015 Blockbuster

We are upon the dawn of a spectacular sportscar era.  If you thought Audi vs.Peugeot or Toyota was good.  Wait til 2015 comes around.  Joining Audi, Toyota, Porsche (2014) will be both Ferrari (strong rumour) and Nissan.  The latter of which just announced a full factory effort for 2015.  So thats around 10 works cars gunning for top prize.

Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro.

Continental Tire Series

There are very few racing series left that harken back to true production based machines.  Even WTCC and V8 supercars used highly modified vehicles.  Trick motors, trannys, diffs and tons of body work.  The US based Continental Tire series however,  is one of the few true production based series left.  The GS class consisting of sportscars with large displacement 6 or 8 cylinder engines, or boosted 4 cylinders.  Including the  Chevlrolet Camaro, Porsche 911s, Subaru Impreza WRX STIs, Ford Mustangs, BMW M3s, and Aston Martin Vantages.  The ST class supports smaller displacement 4 or 6 cylinder coupes, sedans and roadsters.  This includes Honda Civics, Mazda Miatas, Hyundai GenesisPorsche Boxsters, Mazda RX-8s, BMW 330is, VW Golfs, Mazda Mazdaspeed3s, Kia Forte Koups, and BMW 128is, I’d love to see the FIA fund and promote a true worldwide showroom stock series. Imagine adding Audi S5s and S3s, Mercedes-Benz C63s and A-Classes, Mitsubishi EVOs, Lexus RC-Fs and ISs, Renault Meganes, Lotus Evoras, Jaguar F-Types.  An abundance of full works teams battling it out on big name tracks?   It would bring back the win on Sunday sell on Monday sales pitches.

Audi R18 E-Tron: Darth Maul

If it hasn’t been called Darth Maul yet, it should.  The black and red just make it soo sinister.  It also helps when you’re the big bad wolf at Le Mans.  Even Porsche, who’s track record at Le Mans is second to none will be looking up at this machine come summer.  2 hybrid systems this time.  One will be a KERS system to power the front wheels another harnesses exhaust energy to power the electronics.  Similar to what Mazda is implementing in some of their new road cars. Except at 200mph through Mulsane.  Win number 13 for Audi?  Most likely.  The 12 they currently have, have come in a span of 14 years!!!!
