Autocross: August 28, 2011

It's been a while since I've last been to an autocross event and it'll be a while before I'm at another one as I'll be missing the next two events for various reasons. The good thing is that there will be at least two more after that before the end of the season. So lets get back to this event, held out at the Dealer Auto Auction Site under the hot blasting August Sun for a full day of rubber burning good fun.

RWB Global

Of course the first new post on the new blog should be about RAUH-Welt Begriff.

Remember the first time I mentioned that RAUH-Welt Begriff (RWB) was branching out from their little shop in the Chiba Prefecture back when they opened up their Facebook page and US website and there were rumblings about them opening other shops. Well it's starting to all come together with shops being built, parts being shipped and cars getting built along with future plans being made.

FOS Sticker Ideas

Ever since I've started this blog I've thought about making some stickers for the blog but have always put it off thinking that I'd be the only one interested in them.  However, recently a few people have asked if I have stickers for the blog and the sticker idea that has been sitting on the back burner suddenly became relevant. Definitely couldn't hurt, especially when one of those people happens to own one of my favorite RAUH-Welt Begriff cars and said he'd rock one on the car at the next Idlers Games.

2011 af imp Super Carnival

Normally I wouldn't really be covering a Japanese Car show for Euro Imports but then something happened to change my mind.  RAUH-Welt Begriff took a few cars to the show so that got me interested and while I came to droll over the RWB cars I have to admit that I did like a lot of the other Euro Import cars that were at the show as well.  Might have to pay a little more attention to that scene too.

2011 IMS Dyno Day

After the hot hot day at the Import Revolution Car Show and another long night at work it was time to head on down to Motor Mayhem for another day of local automotive shenanigans.  This time around it was an Idaho Motorsports organized dyno day.

2011 Import Revolution 208

It's August in Idaho and it's hot as hell outside and as a red head it takes a lot to get me out of an air conditioned house to brave the heat of the day and that something is car related.  This past weekend it was a car show that I've been looking forward to since people on Idaho Motorsports started talking about the idea.  Import Revolutionv 208 aka IR208 was formulated, put into action and finally on August 6, 2011 the Boise, ID area finally had another Import Car show.  About damn time, and worth braving the heat of the August sun for.

Porsche Zero to Anywhere Street Drive Event

While the Sun Valley Road Rally was taking place in Sun Valley, ID there was also a fun Porsche North America sponsored driving event taking place that weekend as well.  Lyle Pearson Porsche of Boise was helping to host the event.  Porsche North America brought out a hand full of their fleet vehicles to take people on a 45 minute drive to experience what it's like to drive a Porsche.  We didn't find this out until after we checked out the cars entered into the Sun Valley Road Rally and the roommate and I headed back up to the Porsche tent area and found out what was happening there.

2011 Sun Valley Road Rally

This last weekend we skipped the local autocross event to head up to Sun Valley, ID for the Sun Valley Road Rally.  An organized open road high speed challenge to help raise money for the Blaine County Community Drug Coalition.  This is a once a year opportunity to take your fast (or not so fast as it were) car out to a three mile stretch of Highway 75 to run it as fast as you can for up to three runs.  It's not cheap to run but the money raised goes to a worthy cause and we were there to watch the action.
