It seems that at the start of every DMCC series season that rain and wet conditions are in the forecast. Sure enough, Round 1 of the 2014 DMCC series, which took place at the RiverSide Speedway in St Croix, Quebec on Sunday, May 25, 2014, was a wet one.

Besides the wet conditions, the event itself started off good. During the first driver’s meeting of the day, I spotted Scion Racing driver, Pat Cyr, out with his FR-S and showing-off its new livery. The judges made it very clear to the drivers that with the wet conditions they were going to be very strict during this event. Practice started and the drivers were already pushing hard and getting used to the track conditions. Right off the bat, both Max and his father Claude Poirier were driving as if it was bone-dry out; it was really fun to watch!

Qualifications had Jeff Laflamme put down an insane pass that got him the top qualifying spot. Pat Cyr battled all day and tried to get his car set-up properly but sadly was not able to make it happen and failed to qualify.

Street Driven X HyperFest 2016: Alton, VA

Back for its second year, the Street Driven Tour, in collaboration with U.S. Drift and HyperFest (the latter celebrating its 15th annual event) returned to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to usher in the 2016 season with three days of bash-style drifting, NASA-sanctioned road racing and Rally Sport competition, car show, vendor support, live music and entertainment, Drift Mini Games, and lots more. NASA-sanctioned road racing and time trials occurred all weekend on VIR’s 3.27-mile, 18-turn Full Course. Filling one of the run groups were a diverse field of 38 entrants of the 2016 Tire Rack® Ultimate Track Car Challenge (UTCC)—a…

Return To The Island: Berlin Klassik

Give a quick thought to how you entered any car shows you attended this year. It's almost usually through a front door to a convention center, or if it was an outdoor event, up to a ticket booth, which then gets you access to the grounds. In response to some crazy wait times from the past year's show, Berlin Klassik tackled things a little differently this time around. Instead of having registered show cars and attendees coming in through the only entrance to the Guelph Lake Conservation Area and ending up in one line, show organizers booked an open field…

Tuner Evolution 2015: Philadelphia, PA

The roof! The roof! The roof is on fire! Tuner Evolution’s annual Philadelphia event was hot! In fact, it was so hot outside that a bush caught fire in the parking lot of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, which meant everyone, excluding fire marshals, had to wait outside for a brief moment. The heat outside carried inward onto the show floor where we witnessed some the best modified vehicles on the East Coast, live DJs and performances, a B-Boy competition, a handful of prize giveaways, models, celebrities and a bikini contest. There were a few dozen vendors on display, of…

DMCC Round 3 2013: Ste-Croix, QC

The third round of the DMCC series took place at the River Side Speedway located in STE-Croix, Quebec. The last time DMCC came to this track was back in 2009. Since then, it’s had some major changes. Notably, the infield of the track has been paved to make a very high speed and exciting layout. Round three was also the event where Pat Cyr was finally going to have his FR-S out for competition. A lot of people were very excited to see his car out on the track; so much so, a group gathered as he pulled the car…
