The beginning of 2015 was a first for me. Usually I spend New Years at home and go to sleep about five minutes after the ball drops in New York. But this year I watched the new year come in surrounded by thousands of people at the base of the Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. For me, […]
Living in Michigan is a double-edged sword, anywhere in the all four seasons is really, but Michigan seems to be slightly different. As I always say, we’re the home of the Motor City, we basically have fuel in our veins. But when November or December rolls around we loose the ability to enjoy our passion. […]
Most people know about Car Week, or have at least seen photos from it. The week before the Monterey Historic races and Pebble Beach, Carmel and Monterey are overrun with the most exotic cars in the world. McLaren P1s and LaFerraris can be seen on every block, and some the of the most desirable and […]
It was finally time for an event that I’ve been waiting for since last year: Final Bout II. Last year’s event was awesome. The atmosphere, the teams, the cars and the camaraderie of the drivers and fans made it one of the funnest events anyone had ever been to.
I live about half an hour away from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ann Arbor is an interesting city with the University of Michigan right in the center. It’s a high-tech city that is filled with businesses and shops that cater to the high-tech community and university students. Its also home to a few well known car […]
There’s really no way to accurately describe the weekend we experienced in Maine for the New England Forest Rally. It was two days of awesome racing and awesome cars. Alex flew out to Chicago and met me outside of Detroit. We then drove through Canada to New Hampshire where we planned on staying the night. […]
Every weekend in the summer there’s racing all over the globe. And usually I’m upset because I can never get enough racing, and I don’t think I ever will. But recently there was one of the best weekends this year. TUDOR was at Watkins Glen for their six hour race, Pirelli World Challenge was racing […]
There are 52 weekends in 2015 and about half of those are good enough for racing here in Michigan. Of course there are going to be multiple events on several of those weekends, and for the second year in a row I’ve been torn between two big events.
Most of my friends will tell you I never stop talking about California. It’s due to many reasons, among them the weather, the views, and the overall good vibes I get from being there.
I’ve grown up with NASCAR, CART and the American Le Mans Series. I wasn’t introduced to drifting until the early 2000s, but I had very little personal contact with it. I rarely saw it on TV, and only came across some info in magazines. It wasn’t until 2007 that I really started to get into […]
A couple months ago I heard that Ken Lingenfelter was having an open house at his collection. It’s been a few years since my last visit, so I decided it’d be a good time to catch up on what’s new. Since this collection is probably the best car collection in Michigan, it attracts a pretty decent […]
Sno Drift, an event I look forward to every year, traveling up north to stand in the middle of the forest to watch a bunch of cars race by every minute or so. But this year was different. Very different. I’m sure some people have seen articles about the event talking about the possible downfall […]
I’d been looking forward to the North American International Auto Show here in Detroit since this time last year. While it may not be the most glamorous or the biggest, Detroit can still go toe to toe with the best of them. And nothing comes close to the new Ford GT, he car no one […]
After being surrounded by people and buildings for a week in London, it was nice change of pace when we arrived in Newcastle, England. Newcastle is a pretty big city itself, but we were going out to Greenhaugh which was literally in the middle of nowhere. It was awesome.
New York; most people love New York, the sights & sounds, the people. It’s one of those cities that to some people never gets old. I’ve been there once, and if everything goes according to plan, it’ll stay that way. There’s another city to me that is the best. And that is London. I’ve been there seven […]
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me a text asking if I was busy on December 6th. I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars.
