Scraped.Crusaders. at TOPP Drift by Geoff

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:

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.

Show info.

It’s been a while since we’ve posted Mike’s Subaru swapped Karmann Ghia.  LINK.  He was recently able to touch up his paint, add a few leather bits and button up a couple more things.  it isn’t up and running just yet, but when that does happen, we’ll be sure to post the videos.

Those leather straps look MONEY.

I can’t believe this was a spray job.  I’ve seen factory finishes that look worse than this.  Rajiv, gives his approval.

Impressive V8 Debut

The Clipsal 500 at Adelaide is a formidable race to make a series debut at.  The old guns of Holden and Ford are up for any challengers.  NIssan and Mercedes were easily dispelled in their first season last year.  I had figured Volvo S60 would be in the same boat this year, but after Race 2 at Adelaide the pecking order in V8 Supercars needs a shakeup.  Volvo has jumped to a podium finish.  Scott McLaughlin, the 20 yr old 2013 rookie of the year, had an epic fight with THE V8 Supercar hot shoe, Jamie Whincup and won out.  Is there a better looking touring car currently turning laps?  I don’t think so.
