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. There’s a touch of something more – often inexplicable – that stems from the land of the prancing horse. 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.
Madness On Wheels – Rallyings Craziest Years…
On Saturday afternoon, the StanceWorks HQ parking lot filled with the sights and sounds of vintage race cars for our first ever PRE/GRID event. In association with VARA – the Vintage Auto Racing Association – we put forth an event that aims to celebrate everything that makes the world of vintage racing special, and with a bit of luck, we hope to bring a few new faces to the track for the next VARA event.
Over the past two years, the StanceWorks FJ62 Land Cruiser has certainly earned its keep. From off-road adventures driving under a hot day’s sun, to cold nights spent camping inside, we’ve certainly found it to be a home away from home. More than that though, it’s spent nearly two full years on daily driver duty, and while I’ve tried my best to keep it clean, Chloe has done her best to give it that “lived in” feel, and perhaps not in the best way.
The StanceWorks forums are currently undergoing a much-needed overhaul to combat the onslaught of spam that has long since plagued the boards. Please be patient with us over the next day or two as we overhaul our software, implement new anti-spam measures, and do everything we can to reignite the forum community.
