We had an exclusive opportunity to shoot and cover a private testing day for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. On the ticket were Sébastien Loeb, Rhys Millen, Fred Veitch, Robert Prilika, Jeff Zwart, David Donner, Chris Lennon, Carlin Dunne, and Greg Tracy. This was the first opportunity this year for any of these drivers to complete a full ascent to the top of the mountain in a single session.
This year we had the opportunity to not only attend but also enjoy one of the world’s largest BMW M festivals, MFest VII “The Super Show.” Typically held in Las Vegas during April, this year’s event fell on Memorial Day weekend. To some, this date was a blessing, as it provided an extra day of reprieve from the chaos that is Sin City. To all, MFest epitomizes what we care about in the automotive lifestyle—that it’s not just about the cars; it’s also about the common passion and camaraderie with like-minded individuals for a few nights in America’s party city.
When it was announced that the FR-S and BRZ were going to hit the streets, the buzz started immediately. Many new owners of these cars looked at them as alternatives to the beloved Supras, which are getting harder and harder to find unmodified and at a reasonable budget. People loved the look and handling of the compact, lightweight sports car, but it became clear that if left alone it was going to have one weak spot—power. This is an in-depth look at Inline Racing's Turbocharged Scion FR-S.
