It’s happening on April 10 at the Maverick Center.  We’ll be there, perhaps we’ll be bringing a car again.  You should go, because it’s one of the best meets happening in Utah.

What Are YOU Watching?

by Michael Chandler

Seriously.  I am beyond curious what you folks watch on TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Hulu… Porn Hub, whatever you watch.  Normally, I’d expect to be deafened by everyone shouting “Top Gear!” at me, but since we’re between iterations I’m not sure that’s the case anymore.

As I’m writing this, I’m watching an episode of Fast N’ Loud.  Not my favorite show, but not the worst thing to have on in the background.  I’ve also been watching Diesel Brothers, which follows the exploits of the local boys at DieselSellerz.com.  Again, not my favorite but not the worst thing you could be watching.  That might be either version of Street Outlaws.  There is no doubt in my mind that they actually street race, but the product they’re putting out is not that.*

And in the bookcase next to my TV is quite the collection of DVDs.  There are a few old Best Motoring Internationals hanging out, and an ever growing stack of JDM OPTION!s .  While on the subject of sweet media from Japan, I’ve got an external hard drive that contains Initial D in its entirety, as well as a little series called Wangan Midnight and a ton of Maximum Tune.

So what are you guys watching?  Let us know in the comments.

*Street racing/drifting/whatever is also dumb, and illegal.  We don’t condone it, and we don’t want to hear about you doing it.  So, don’t…

Magnus Racing Takes GTD Win

by Michael Chandler

Fall Enduro cover-1

Remember when Magnus Racing was just a humble outfit in a garage at Miller?  Me too, and then they won Daytona!  Then they stayed pretty much the same, just changed digs.  This year, in a new Audi R8 LMS GT3, they took their second win at the historic race.  Here’s a photo of the old Magnus 911 at a MPRA race (Miller Park Racing Association, super OG stuff) back in 2011, the year before they took their first win at Daytona.

Only Lightly Modified

Clint Stoneham RBZ Test N Tune Michael Chandler CAMautoMag (8 of 10)

Listen, Clint Stoneham’s Z still had an inline six made by Nissan.  It just wasn’t necessarily what came in the car originally.  But that’s no longer a concern, because he’s throwing a turbo V8 into it.  Because why not keep the orange sled ridiculous?

Lunchtime Time Killer

by Michael Chandler

 

 

The craziest cars you’ll see on a track are dedicated time attack cars.  They only have to go for a lap or two at a time, and they’re built for raw speed.  They’re cool, but they’re not the coolest.  Imagine seeing a field of ridiculous cars, battling it out over a a full race.  A battle of exploding budgets, escalating horsepower, and factory backed lunatics.  This was the IMSA GTP class, and it was insane.  Go ahead and dive down that rabbit hole
