After round one we were sitting in 14th place overall and super stoked for round two. But we were also battling some fuel mapping problems and minor wiring issues. We tried to drive around it and sort it out before round two.
This should probably wrap up the last bit of our event coverage from 306Motorclub X DODOlogic’s Summer Session presented by Performance Plus. Thank you so much to all the attendees who came out and hopefully we will see you again real soon. Also thanks to Curtis Haigh and the fine people at 306Motorclub for making this happen. Anyway, let’s get this going.
“Early in the morning, risin’ to the street” is all I can think to start this post with, not because I’m a huge Sublime fan but more like it is exactly what we did on Saturday. Before we could get to Summer Session, we had to get to Saskatoon and that was nothing that a quick 2 hour cruise wouldn’t solve.

This is more of a mini feature, just a few shots. Unfortunately and fortunately I was driving at the event, so taking pictures was a little difficult. I did however manage to grab some shots of the Drift Union/DTA cars before the chaos began. If you know Drift Union, then you know snapping pictures at the beginning of the year is important. These guys drive hard and by the end of season the cars have swapped out the new aero and fresh paint for broken panels and battle scars. If you are wanting to know more about these cars, fear not. There will be full individual features of each car coming through out the summer, so you can see whats going on under all the body panels. Enjoy!
If there was an automotive dictionary and I was appointed to define the word “sleeper” all I would simply do is post a picture of this truck. Built for hauling his 1000hp Targa top FB to shows and alike this 1993 Toyota Pickup has a 13B from the Japanese Mazda Cosmo pushing 330rwhp and 310ft/lbs of torque!
So my travels have put me back in Vancouver for a little while. Lucky for me there was a little meet that happened on the Spanish Banks this past Sunday. So in the midst of planning out my future, my fiancee and I took a drive out to the shore to see some classic Japanese automobiles.
A few weeks ago, I posted some pics from our travels to Rivers Manitoba. I never really showed our final destination but rather left everyone with a lack luster cliffhanger. A few local car enthusiasts hosted a little free for drift weekend and we could not resist the invitation. Our time in Rivers took place over two days and it couldn’t have gone any better. Well that is not entirely true, Saturday it rained which was good for tires but bad for pictures. However, Sunday brought some rays of sunshine and plenty of smoke.
