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.

Performance VW has enlisted our help to cover Eurokracy 2013. The article was published in the April issue. The Scraped.Crusaders. provided the words and images, while the Eurokracy crew provided the one of best car shows in Canada. The issue also happens to feature UNIX Performance’s amazing grean MK1, and a bagged Audi 80. We suggest you take a gander.
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.
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.
Toyota TS030 Hybrid.
Porsche 919 Hyrbid.
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.
