Drivingsports-LaunchControlS01E01RinseAndRepeatSubaruRally269

I love Auto Racing. More than the racing itself, I love the engineering and dedication from the race teams to make it all come together. It’s a constant struggle and search for more speed.

The Subaru Rally Team USA has put together an amazing web show called Launch Control to show you the progression of the Subaru Rally America and Global Rally Cross Teams. It’s an great series showing behind the scenes of auto racing.

Global Rally Cross – Oh yeah!!!

GRC

I love Motorsports. On-Road Racing, Off-Road Racing, doesn’t matter. So imagine how excited I get when you combine the two? Oh yeah!!!

Rally Racing has always been one of my favorites. But stage rally is not doing much in North America as far as running events and broadcasting on TV. But that’s where the Global Rally Cross comes in.

Global Rally Cross is more of a circuit style Rally race that is catching on all over the world. Races are usually held on a built race track before another major race event like Nascar. Add a little dirt and some jumps, and tada!!! You get Global Rally Cross.

Racing like this has helped attract some of the world’s best drivers like Tanner Foust, Brian Deegan, Rhys Millen, and Travis Pastrana, as well as some of the worlds best sponsors like Red Bull, Rockstar, and Subaru.

Civic Si or BRZ Sport Tech?

photo

There is no shortage of quality when it comes to performance at a good price between Honda and Subaru. Being able to sell them both, I find myself being torn between the new Civic Si and the BRZ Sport Tech.

Both cars perform and are equipped at a high level, and are priced almost the same. It’s amazing.

Both cars are at or just above 200 Horse Power.
Both cars put all their power through an amazing 6-Speed Manual Transmission
Both cars offer an amazing driving experience
And Both cars are priced under $30,000 and are loaded with great features like Navigation, Push Button Start, and a Premium Sound System.

One of the biggest differences between the two is that the Civic Si is Front-Wheel Drive, and the BRZ Sport-Tech is Rear-Wheel Drive.

It’s not an easy decision. Which would you pick?

Car Culture – On a small scale

Ever since I was a kid, Radio Controlled cars have been a hobby of mine. It’s something that from a young age, fueled my passion for cars and Motorsports.

Radio Controlled cars have come a long way since I was a kid, and now you can get almost anything you desire. Anything you like about cars, you can buy it, our build it to express yourself.

It’s a smaller way to be a part of a great club or support your favorite brand.

Check out this video for a small part of the Radio Controlled Car culture. A whole new passion

Normally, sloppy roads are a hassle when you are planning trips or travel. Is that because your not confident in your vehicles ability to handle the conditions?

Poor weather road conditions are the perfect time to come in and test a new Honda. I’ll demonstrate how well our cars can handle anything the Canadian winter can throw at us, and how it’s going to get you to your destination AND protect you against possible road hazards.

The worse the weather, the better the test drive experience.

Let’s book a time

Subaru for the Winter

2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Snow Ride

With driving conditions in Niagara being touch and go from day to day, trust in Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to get you to your destination over the holidays. Maybe have a lot of fun whole your at it.
