Now this is a Nurburgring video that brings smiles to my heart. Watch this EP3 Civic Type R driver chase down a Nissan GTR on an open lapping day.
Just shows it’s not just what you drive, but how to drive it. (Now I know we’re talking about different skill levels of drivers, probably tires and a few other things, but I don’t care. Nope. Don’t. Care.)
So we don’t talk about tuner cars enough here on |StartingGrid|. (Ok, that’s a bit of a lie. We do on the Facebook page, but not so much on the blog.) I’ll be the first to admit that, so it’s time to fix that. The aero-kits from Japanese tuning house Liberty Walk have been grabbing attention since they first started working on Lamborghinis a while back.

Just a little slide...
For those of you that haven’t had a chance to come out to an autocross event, you probably don’t know what you’re missing out on. There are many things that make it a great experience: the competition, the intensity level for the entire time that you spend on track and, most importantly, the camaraderie of your fellow autocrossers. The people who I’ve met out on the track have, persistently, turned out to be some of the nicest, friendliest, and helpful people that I’ve ever met.
The friendships that I’ve developed over my eight years of autocrossing have left a lasting, positive impression on my life. It might sound a little melodramatic but these people have become a family to me over the years. We all share the same addiction. More than any one individual, the community has been there for me whenever I’ve been in need. If I had personal drama that I needed to talk out, these people were there for me. They’ve offered an ear, or a hug or a guiding hand (sometimes even with a beer in it!). Through these friendships, I got what has to be a rare opportunity for a poor twenty-something college student; I got the chance to drive Godzilla!
A few weeks ago, we featured a post about the Juke-R. A Nissan Juke with GTR running gear. The team working on the car has turned around this project in an amazing amount of time.
Take a look at a shakedown video of the car on track. Super Crossover!
The Mclaren F1 was initially designed to be a road-car only. Thankfully, Mclaren loves to win too much to leave things as they are. Therefore in 1995, they designed the Mclaren F1 GTR race car to compete at LeMans.
Next to the Mclaren F1 LM, this car is one of my favorites. (Check out the pictures and videos below.)
