3rd annual Gainesville, Florida IMPORT FACE-OFF: October 16th, 2011

Yet another IFO with increased attendance from all previous years.  Thank you to all the fans for the continuous support.

Even without a working 2nd gear, David Penton from Winter Haven, FL (black Toyota Supra) won the Forced Induction Pro class running consistent low 10s throughout the day.

For a second event in a row, Chris Pena from Winter Haven, FL (green Toyota Supra) won the Forced Induction Sport (Street) class running consistent mid 10s.  During the “Beat the Heat” round where the FIS winner races against a Cop, Chris red lit after track officials mistakenly used a sportsman tree instead of a pro tree.  Chris, the good sportsman that he is, agreed to a rematch at the 2012 Gainesville event against Lt. Tom Brown who races a 5.0 Mustang.

Marc Podkowic won the All Motor Pro class running 10.6s with his K-series Civic hatch during qualifying and eliminations.  This marks his 6th IFO win.

Number 1 qualifier Cesar Olin from Jacksonville, Florida should have easily won the FWD class with his 9 second Civic, but red lit in the semis, most likely due to his bumper being too low to the ground.  Racers should have at least 3 inches of ground clearance to ensure the beams are not tripped during staging.

Best Club Participation was won by Kindred Impulse; Best Club Representation was won by Team V2 Lab. www.importfaceoff.net

DMCC Round 5 2012: Montmagny, QC

Round 5 of the DMCC series took place in Montmagny, Quebec. The event was originally supposed to be held on the 11th but due to severe thunder storms in the forecast for the first time in DMCC history the event was postponed to the week after. Changing the date of the event was a good move since it was a super nice day but did have its downfall as a few of the regular drivers were not able to make it due to schedule conflicts. The event started early as it was an all-day-and-night event where practice, qualification and completion…
