41 Street Driven Tuner Evo Hyperfest 2017 PASMAG

Street Driven Tour’s “Drift Mini Games” also returned toward the end of the day, with three crowd-favorites taking place on the Full Course after NASA racing had ended:

? Hard Parking Challenge, where entrants drift toward a wall of boxes and compete for who can come to rest the closest, without contact

? Drift Soccer, in which competitors attempt to drift a tee’d soccer ball into a goal

? 360 Drift, in which competitors connect two turns of the VIR Full Course with 360-degree drifts

Ending things with a real bang this year was the Tire Massacre, which saw epic burnout after epic burnout, without a single failed attempt. Entrants included everything from Mike Prez’s Supra, to a vintage BMW and a Barbie Cart competitor’s daily-driven Ford Escort, to no fewer than three Miatas, and even a donut-spinning late-model Ford Mustang.

But the hands-down winner became Trent Doak, the moment his V8-swapped Miata erupted in a blaze of glory after a shift into sixth gear at the end of a big smoker roasted his clutch instead of his tires, and sent chunks of glowing flywheel shooting out from underhood, piercing a fuel line in the process. Lesson learned: Scatter-shields are a good thing. Watching your car nearly burn to the ground … not so much.

Scion FR-S RC Rally Cup

Scion recently teamed up with R/C company HPI to throw the first-ever FR-S Cup. Held at Toyota’s Torrance, California, corporate headquarters, this just-for-fun event featured a variety of FR-S-based R/C races, an FR-S R/C car show, and even appearances from Scion luminaries like Stephen Papadakis and Five Axis’ Troy Sumitomo. Prizes were awarded throughout the day – we didn’t win anything, but given that we didn’t completely embarrass ourselves during our competition heat, we came out feeling like winners anyway.…

Hot Summer Nights 2011

Delayed one week due to Hurricane Irene, September 3rd proved to be the perfect date for eXquisite Car and Truck Club’s show, Hot Summer Nights held at Quaker Steak and Lube in Fredericksburg, VA.  The parking lot was packed full of imports, domestics, mini trucks, lifted trucks, donks, performance, and style.  Nightfall is when everyone really started to shine with their custom lighting.

Honda Yuasa Racing BTCC Battle Moves to Donington Park

The fight for the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship heads to Donington Park this weekend and Honda Yuasa Racing Team drivers Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden are aiming to be in the thick of the action. Reigning BTCC champion Neal gave the new NGTC Honda Civic a win on its debut at Brands Hatch earlier this month and currently lies second in the drivers’ standings. That means he will have to carry 36kg of success ballast in the first Donington race, but the three-time title winner believes he will still be in the fight. “We’re expecting more of…
