86 Day 2015 at Cyrious Garage

August, 6th,  86 Day in the car community.  The AE86 authority in Mississauga is definitely Cyrious Garage.  Having campaigned their coupe for numerous years in DMCC and FD Pro2.  Every year they open up their shop on this day for a small pop up meet.  And pretty much every 86 in the GTA showed up. […]

Scraped.Crusaders. at TOPP Drift by Gill

It felt awesome to get the first show/event under belt.  Winter needs to frickin die.  The weather was great enough to warrant only t-shirts. That made the TOPP Drift season opener even better. First and foremost we were there to watch and support Steve and his e30. #kristofflovesthis From show car to drift slut. I’m […]

2014 Hyundai i20 WRC Car.

The new Korean outfit unveiled their 2014 and full driver lineup.  Hellix (Shell performance oil) will ablaze on the size.  With “N”, Hyundai’s new performance division.  They boasted a healthy lineup of up and coming, Thierry Nueville  and established talents of Dani Sordo, Chris Atkinson and Juha Hanninen.  I’d love to see them challenge VW […]

Return of The Rising Sun?

Toyota’s TMG (Their German based racing division, also building the LMP1 car) has confirmed to be constructing a Yaris based WRC spec car for the 2014 season.  It will be used as an evaluating platform for a full factory effort in the short future.  They seem relatively certain of future rallying programs.  VW and Hyundai […]

More Sideways Than Not.

The Goodwood Revival is THE historic racing event.  Brings back the days when driver had to tip toe cars around the track.  Add rain into the mix, and you get this.  Kenny Brack, something about Swedes that make them so good at going sideways. Video of Brack going a bit more sideways. Also added Chris […]

Crowned #2

Vettel wasn’t the only recent champion.   Sebastien Ogier picked up his first WRC title.  Everyone knew he had the talent.  The surprise came in the form of the winning manufacturer.  Not often does any team in any series win outright in their first full season.  Volkswagen did just that.  The field is thinned out, […]

VagKraft 2013 by Gill

I don’t always like VWs but when I do, they’re 2 instagram queens.  @farklefitment’s green hatch and @corrrrrrigan’s red one. @ladeedubxo’s bagged City Golf.  Followed by the rest of my limited VW content. Sean Murphy’s Mk3.  The Stay Strong booth, helped raise funds for Sean who’s rehabilitating from a spinal cord injury.  More info. Fairly […]

Subaru Hypermeet 2013: Subarus

After a quick pitstop at Cars and Coffee I made my way over to the 2013 Subaru Hypermeet.  I felt like there was a tad more variety this year compared to previous years.  HREs would not have been seen before.  Neither would that Forester trailer combo. This.  Pretty much the car I lusted after in […]

Pikes Peak 2013

Jeff Zwart’s day job is a commercial director.  So you’d think his run up the hill will have a great video.  Will Roegge takes care of that for him. Much like his driving style.  Less flare, strictly business.  Loeb’s Pikes Peak video gets the job done.  With a time under  8:15, even fully paved that […]

Black Pug.

Life after the WRC seems pretty good for Sebastien Loeb.  A rumoured WTCC program with Citroen, select rounds of the Porsche Super Cup now this.  A Pikes Peak attack.  Peageot, looking back to its Climb Dance days, will compete at Pikes Peak with their 208 T16.  Its more or less a rehashed 908.  The running […]

2013 Rally Mexico

So are we handing the title to Ogier already?  Jebus.  From one dominating Frenchman to another.    He leads heading into Day 2.  Fun Fact:  This is Ken Block’s only rally of the year.  He’s doing quite well.  For a guy that picked up rallying as a hobby late in his 30’s, to be even […]
