While it’s not as well attended as its West Coast sister, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, I was shocked by the variety of cars in attendance at Road Atlanta a few weeks ago. As Datsun/Nissan was the featured marque, a large portion of the paddo…

We’ve finally thawed out from the cataclysmic December snowball that was the 24 Hours of Lemons’ season-ending 2017 race. This was the inaugural Kim Harmon Scrotium 500, which also happened to be the first Lemons race at the legendary Road Atlanta. Usually home to high-dollar sports car racing, the Georgia race track instead hosted 100 […]

There is no event in the United States that I can compare Gridlife to, because it’s that unique. And everything about Gridlife South held at Road Atlanta, Georgia two weeks ago was new to me when I attended for the very first time. The Gridlife formula is actually quite simple: Cars and music. As basic as it is […]

There are few things on earth that are more unashamedly Australian than a ute. Take a big sedan, hack up the rear, put a bed in there and you’ve pretty much nailed the basic concept of a proper utility vehicle. They’ve always struck me as a bit of an afterthought, but I love them all […]
Both the best and worst part of hunting speed full-time is that you can never switch off. But then, I think all true petrol-heads are like this to some extent. It doesn’t matter if you’re at an event or just trying to drift your shopping trolley (that’s a grocery cart, Americans) down the laundry aisle, […]
Going into this racing season, I had no idea just how all-consuming it would be to follow a drift team at each Formula D event. Previously, I had visions of taking some photos, going for a stroll around the paddock, and using the spare time to hunt down other cars. As it has happened so far, […]
I may have hinted it at previously, but there’s a lot to be gained from losing. It was just two weeks earlier when we saw both Worthouse S15s unceremoniously dumped out of competition at the Top 16 stage of the event in Orlando. Anyone who is familiar with watching James Deane and Piotr Więcek drive will know […]

Not that I doubted his ability, but the route to this win was paved with difficulties and obstacles that I still struggle to comprehend how he overcame them. Three events, two wins for James Deane. What makes this special is not just the difficult path to the final, but to be accompanied by his friend […]
