If you’re in the same boat as we are, chances are you won’t understand a lick of this week’s reel find. However, some sounds are universal. Enjoy the screams of the inline six versus the flat six in this vintage footage of the 1976 World Touring Car Championship as the E9 CSL battles against the Porsche 934 for top rights.
Truth be told, I’m impressed we managed to post a Daily Grind piece without adding a new vehicle to the fleet. It was our first in a long, long time – Andrew’s Project Mini update – but the reality is we skipped sharing the addition of a new vehicle on purpose. We needed to break the streak. With that said, it should be rather on-the-nose this time around that this Daily Grind update is absolutely about the latest addition to the StanceWorks Garage.
With each new season of Fromula Drift comes new cars, new drivers, new teams, and new styles. It’s a sport that has evolved in countless ways – some more appreciated than others – but one thing remains constant. Formula Drift is owed a sense of gratitude for its captivation of young enthusiasts, and their introduction to the world to auto racing, in one form or another. And to that end, we owe the drivers too.
When it comes to automobiles, there’s something particular about the Italians and the way they do things. Compared to the rest of the world, somehow, the product of italian automotive passion seems inherently richer.

While that can be said of Italy’s cars, even the ones of the non-supercar variety, it can also be said of the parts and pieces that make them.
There’s no doubt that as racing enthusiasts, we all revel in the glory of rallying’s hey day: Group B. Legendary for their unmitigated speed and balls-out approach to racing in the sand, mud, dirt, and snow, it comes as no surprise that the BBC would put together what might just be the best documentary on the sport. Lights down, volume up, and enjoy our latest find from the reels.
