Remember the days when going 225 in the half mile was f*cking insane? We do too and feels like it was years ago! And it was. We were going through our archives and stumbled across this gem that we never released and with Airstrip Attack 8 this week, we think it's time we showed the world. Enjoy this piece back from 2013 when Underground Racing reigned supreme with a new world record at 224.9 MPH established by Stacey Barnett.
What is it about a car sliding sideways (on a public road) that makes us all giddy inside? We think it’s the way the car seems to dance across the road almost effortlessly—sliding from one side to the other as if that’s what it was designed to do. Watching this film, shot in the mountains of eastern Norway, we see Fredrik Sorlie doing what he loves. And doing it well. Such talent behind both the wheel of that amazing JZX30 Cressida and the Phantom Red camera shooting those amazing shots highlights everything we love about cars.
Didn't make it to Import Expo, one of the East Coast's biggest scene events? Well, Anthony over at Halcyon Photo did, and we're glad he was there. The guys over at Import Expo in Canada hooked up with SNTRL in NYC for one of the premier events of the season at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Some of the best import cars were on display, ranging from slammed Subarus to matching Integra builds. Be sure to check out our full event coverage!
Have you ever had an idea that just sits in the back of your mind for years? Nigel Petrie did. Six years ago he envisioned the perfect drift car. After three years of mentally working everything out and two and a half years of building, his idea became reality. With grit and determination, Nigel built what he wanted without any compromise or influence from the rest of the world. Unlike most modified drift cars, Nigel’s Ute was built from the ground up—every weld, cut, and bolt. See the love and care behind the build of an amazing drift car in a film by Matthew Cox.
