CSCS, show and shine, time attack and drifting. There are no other events locally that combine these three things. As a person who’s attention span is very very limited ,the multiple aspects to the show are welcome. It’s hard not to be a fan of time attack and drifting when they are witnessed in person. Even if the cars and brands aren’t up to your fanboy code. I’m not exactly a fan of Hondas but I can watch them thrash around the track for hours.
I rolled to the show with Adrian. The lack of VWs was obvious. I still don’t understand why the VW crowd does not show up. Even the biggest of VW, rear beam fan boys, Adrian had a good time. The main reason we went was to see Steve skid in the Scraped Crusaders X Swang Bang Money Gang E30. I don’t want to stroke his ego, but for a guy that’s only been drifting on the track for less than a year, he’s doing incredibly well.
As a Subie fanboy, Riley’s Impreza ticks all the right boxes. RWD and 500hp? Yes, please.
Dylan Sharpe was killing it all day. Not surprised he was able to win. More impressive, is that he drove it home afterwards.
Kitted S13s, make me rethink me car choice constantly.
Jover’s AE before punting Steve’s car. Though, the damage to the Corolla was minimal.
Innovative Tuning had my two favourite cars of the day. Their LS3 swapped E46 M3 drift car. Purists aside, this thing is awesome.
Their Impreza time attack car was my other favourite. At 20 years old. this GC shouldn’t be as competitive as it is. Watching it slide and power its way sideways out of corners made my day.
As an amateur photographer the intricacies of camera settings still confuse me. So, the photos are limited to mostly the pit lane variety. That does allow me to get way closer to the machinery, so I’ll have to view it as a plus. Especially regarding the time attack cars. I prefer to shoot a closer view of the aero bits, allowing me to watch the racing action without bothering with photos.
Porsche 944, which the track announcer confused for a 928.
Mazda’s version of the 944, the FC….bro.
It must feel awesome when your 150hp, 1500lbs fwd Suzuki Swift is able to overtake a McLaren MP4.
I was only able to grab a few photos of the show and shine cars. A lot of the cars were too Dark Knights (old Toronto rice scene car show) for me. While I appreciate craftsmanship. I don’t appreciate the terrible taste that goes with some of them. I don’t have to like your car because you spent money on body work. Ugly is ugly.
The complete opposite of ugly is this Z.
Mike’s crazy eyed FC. Mismatched wheels never looked so good.
Veilside? Brings back memories of videos I used to download off Scour/Kazaa/Limewire. The season finale it scheduled for September 21. Unfortunately, I’ll have to miss it as we’re driving to H20i.
86 day, August 6th. Its the first time I’ve heard of it. As soon as I found out Cyrious Garageworks was holding festivities, I was there along with Dave. We probably should have shown up a bit early to take photos. It was really dark within an hour. Also I think i took more pics of non AE86s than 86s.
I can’t wait till I put my coilovers on. I haven’t been able to comfortable park my car within the cool cars for months. I parked in the adjacent lot with this guy.
I had no idea the GTA had this many clean 86s. I was fully expecting rusted rockers, bent quarters and flimsy bumpers. Instead, there were 10-15 of the cleanest Corollas I’ve ever seen.
Got my first look at Aiden’s new wheel setup. Those Luxaru Abstracts are damn nice.
Big body sedans with RWD and a turbo. This Chaser fits the bill for my ideal daily.
Dan’s Lexus, looking good as always.
It may not be in the greatest condition, but I’m glad this Celica is still on the road.
With the festivities of Eurokracy taking over the entire Canada Day weekend, we were unfortunately unable to make it to Boonies Bash 2014 at Shonnonville. Luckily our friend Lucas from FTN Auto was able to capture the sights and sounds. We’re posting pics of 3 of our good friends. Steve Van Sluewen’s E30, Mike Catell’s FC and Kristoff Hemet’s E36.
More pics can be found here: FTN Auto Boonies Bash.
Moving west of the city has its benefits and drawbacks. The major drawback being the driving distance to Mosport and Shannonville. Using a 4.0 V8 to get there doesn’t help. I’m just unable to attend all of the events. Luckily I can just post Devo’s videos.
More of his work here: Original Sin.
Hands down, this is my favourite 86. Those big flared arches and big wheels just work well together. Of course those big additions needs more than a 4A. The LS3 brings the package to monstrous levels of awesome.
If you can’t do it in real life, do it on Live for Speed?
Despite the fact that it snowed in the GTA on Tuesday, we had a blast on Sunday at Shannonville; my farmer’s tan is just starting to even out.
Steve’s car first; we’ve seen this car through so many stages and this one certainly doesn’t fail to impress:
These cars take a thrashing, that being said I now want something RWD to sling around the track
My favorite sequence of the day, RB26 powered 240:
