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.

TOPP DriftRound 3: Shannonville

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.

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.

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.
