Last fall we had the pleasure of meeting Darren from alphawerx for a small shoot. Having worked at BMW for 6 years so he knows the ins and out of most bavarian beasts. It it of no surprise that he himself owns one. On the outside this 1999 E36 M3 looks very unsuspecting. No flashing lights, no wild body kits. Everything looks like it just belongs; but don’t let that fool you. This yellow monster is boosted! Darren purchased and installed the kit himself (bmw mechanic, owns his own shop, why not!). It’s been running trouble free ever since he’s owned it. A testament…
July 15th was yet another successful CSCS event held at Mosport DDT. Despite the weather forecast, the show was solidly packed with show cars, spectators and competitors for Drift and Time Attack. Even when it rained right after the first round of Drifting, people stayed for the remainder of the event – another 4 hours!
During practice, the M.Y. Racing (Maruyichi Auto)Civic Hatch rolled at the corner entering the front straight by the pits. It was definitely an unexpected flip from a consistently fast car that never misses out on these events. Thankfully, kudos to the roll cage, the driver made it out safely. Also, special thanks go to those who rushed out to roll the car back on its wheels and to help the driver out (see pics below).
On a lighter note, Defcon Racing took home First Place in Unlimited FWD in their insane turbo K20 DC2. Not only did they take first, but they beat the Ferrari lap time (he was there to set a lap record)! Needless to say, with the massive downpour, the track was very slippery. Track times under 1:10 were scant until the track started to dry up a bit. There was definitely great effort even though competitors were locking up and spinning out.
Congrats to all the winners! Times and positions can be seen here: http://livetiming.net/cscs/
