Revwerks has become a regular name at the track these past couple of years. Booking up track-days month after month. This time with a wider mix of cars and even a supercar making an appearance it was a track day to remember! Even though the usual crowd was out enjoying the sun and track, there was another crowd who brought out their brand new BMW’s and Audi’s to put them to test. It was definitely a sight to see and we hope to see those guys out there at the next one which is scheduled for August 18th. Make sure [...]
Just want to start off by giving a shoutout to both StatusOne Autoworks and Driftsquad for putting on a great event! Even though the weather was windy and rainy at times the guys still went out there and showed off their skills! This was the first time heading out to one of their events and it was awesome to meet some of the drifters who we don’t regularly meet at other events. It was also great to enjoy some good music while shooting so props to the DJ that came out! Looking forward to the next one on August 5th(Postponed [...]
I had the opportunity to shoot Chris’s Trumph TR7 a while ago and finally got the chance to get it up. I have to admit, this isn’t a car you see everyday – in fact, this is a car I have never seen until last year at the Driven car show. I was literally confused and delighted when he rolled in the booth because at first glance, if you don’t know Triumph, then you’re going to wonder what car this is. At second glance, you’ll know the SR20 sitting under the hood is no joke. Chris has done most of [...]
Honda Tuning August 2011 issue that just hit the shelf… check it! More local mag coverage with none other than the infamous CHOWFUN. Love seeing the local heat getting coverage like this, hope there’s more to come. Cat was less than thrilled… You can also check Nick’s illmotion feature from last summerHERE
We aren’t done yet. We all have our own perspective on the show and so we’ll just keep posting until we’ve exhausted our supply. It never hurts to see more pictures My favourite booth of the night – I swear I was in J’s Racing/Voltex heaven. I think I have GT wing fever. Onto the pics!
We have been dying to bring our readers some Eastern Canadian coverage for months now and we’ve finally been able to hook up with Galen Wan, aka GAWA and bring you David Soo’s immaculate Fiji Blue 8th gen Civic Si. The pictures speak for themselves….. perfect stance (IMO), super clean AME wheels and some J’s parts scattered around make for a great example on how to make your 8th gen stand out from the crowd.

The illmotion Dudes headed out to Vancouver, BC on July 16, 2011 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station to attend the DTP Auto Show presented by Yokohama Tires. The caliber of cars that were present at the show (and the parking lot) just left everybody from the crew speechless. Vancouver’s scene brought everything to the table from highly modified sport compacts and even a few modified luxury vehicles. Aside from the rain, the Vancouver DTP Auto Show was unlike anything we’ve seen in Calgary and it was good to see how other car enthusiasts in Canada are reppin’ for their city. [...]
Another week brings another post with pics from the weekly 403 Honda/Beyond Meet. There was a threat of rain, which stopped people from showing up, but luckily only a few drops hit us at Chinook. Hopefully the weather is better and we see everyone for the next one!
