CSCS August 11th

cs26

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.

cs23

It must feel awesome when your 150hp, 1500lbs fwd Suzuki Swift is able to overtake a McLaren MP4.

cs33

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.

cs8

The complete opposite of ugly is this Z.

cs21

Mike’s crazy eyed FC.  Mismatched wheels never looked so good.

cs13

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.

Boonies Bash 2014

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.

Eurokracy 2013 | Show Coverage

Chalk up Eurokracy 2013 as over.  These are the last images we have.  I think Matt saved the best for last.

We had Steve’s E30 and Mauricio’s Mk2 in our booth.  If I’m being frank, I think both of these cars could have easily taken home a Eurokracy plate got their categories.

Scraped.Crusaders. at Fitted

We’ve decided to have a booth setup for Fitted.  We will have our tee shirts and stickers available for purchase.  Quantities will be limited.  We will also be featuring two booth babes.  Steve’s BMW “SR20″ E30 and Geoff’s Audi “GT2871R” A4.  I may be biased when I say this, but they are two of the best E30s and B5s in the GTA.  Also 5 attendees will go home with free t shirts, as part of Fitted’s giveaways for the event.

Does this car ever get old?  We’ll stop if it does.  The 2 owners of the 2 coolest BMWs in Toronto in one car.  We’ll post more of Kristoff’s soon. Pic my DaveM.

Scraped does Eurokracy

The first roadtrip of the year is complete.  There were a few hiccups on the way though.  My Subaru decided to wearout a wheelbearing in the most inconvienent time so she was MIA.  NBD, I got to ride shotgun in Steve’s E30, which later won Best BMW at the show. :)  Kristoff chewed through a oil pan on the way.  Spare pan in the form of JB Weld was used.  Weather was AWESOME, cars were AWESOME, the women were French=AWESOME.  EuroKracy seems to have grown 4-5 fold since the first event last year.  This seems optimistic when I say this but I can see it growing into Canada’s H20.  More coverage in a bit.
