2010 CSCS Season Opener
Toronto Motorsports Park
Cayuga, ON
June 6, 2010

 

Overall the 2010 CSCS Season Opener was a success, despite the terrible weather conditions race fans and competitors proved that Ontario still has a strong sport compact community and that they are dedicated to seeing CSCS grow. The next stop for the series is “Napierville Dragway” located just south of downtown Montreal on July 10.

With the forecast calling for heavy rain at the 2010 CSCS Season Opener presented by JRP, both enthusiasts and Team CSCS feared that elements of the event would be cancelled. However, in true support for Canada’s biggest sport compact racing series, fans camped outside the front gate the night before anticipating the start of another exciting racing season.

The “Drifters” hit the wet track early in the morning and for the first time in Ontario’s Pro-Am history, drifting saw a diverse field of cars ranging from:  IS300, 350z, G35, and of course Chris De La Cruz’s famous BMW. S1DC maintained their dominance with a 1st and 2nd place finish by Chris St. John and Lucas Johnson, while John Fiddy piloted his Skyline to a 3rd place finish.

The story of the day for “Time Attack presented by Bully Performance Clutch,” really belongs to the Super Street FWD class as it appears to be the most competitive class for the second year in a row. 1st Sean Heydorn, 2nd Brian Wong (Advance Power House), and 3rd Terrance Davis finished only a second apart from each other. Other notable 1st place winners include: John Silva (Street FWD), John Inglis (Street RWD), Sameer Hammoudeh (Super Street RWD), Nathan Hopkins (Super Street AWD), Anna He (Unlimited FWD) and Phil Bridges (Unlimited RWD).

PAS Magazine’s recent BMW cover car owned by local tuner Gary Collins took home Best of Show in the “Show & Shine” followed by Sergio Sousa’s tricked out PT Cruiser. Capping off the podium was Brian Wong’s (Advance Power House) turbo Amuse widebody S2000! Modified Society once again took home the largest club award as they look forward to winning the largest club championship for the third year in a row.

The “Drag Racing” got off to a late start as track officials desperately tried to dry and prep the track for Canada’s fastest sport compacts. Tag Racecraft debuted their new RWD Accord driven by Mel Tiqui and ran the fastest time of the day in qualifying at 8.72, but he wasn’t able to duplicate that time in the finals and finished 2nd to Sean Devine who took home 1st place in Pro Compact. Adam Drake defeated John Paul Dias for 1st place in the Super Street Power Adder Class while Jim Edwards took home 1st place in both the JRP Street Warz, and Pure Street classes. The eventual bracket winner was Marcel Brosseau.

Overall the 2010 CSCS Season Opener was a success, despite the terrible weather conditions race fans and competitors proved that Ontario still has a strong sport compact community and that they are dedicated to seeing CSCS grow. The next stop for the series is “Napierville Dragway” located just south of downtown Montreal on July 10. CSCS will be back in Toronto on August 22 for Xtreme Tuner Challenge which is geared up to be Canada’s biggest sport compact racing event of the year. For more info visit www.CSCS.ca

Words and Photography by Randi Bentia Historically, Tom's charity event hasn't seen the best weather. A week prior to the 5th annual Niagara Tuner & Truck Expo, it seemed that the weather had the same plans with a forecast of "80% chance of rain" for the weekend in Niagara Falls. Then after a chilly night in Southern Ontario, the clouds broke free the morning of show-day to allow the sun to shine on the…

Tokyo Auto Salon 2010

Every year we put our daily lives on hold and hop on a plane for Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS). After 13 hours living it up in First Class, we arrive in Japan the following day after crossing the International Date Line. The first order of business when you step off the plane is to grab a DoCoMo cell phone in the airport, which will cost around $60 for the week. Then it’s time to hop on the train and head out to the hotel that booked us in a cramped 10’x10’ room. Since the twin beds were almost touching, our…
