DMCC 2012: Round 1: Autodrome Montmagny

The 2012 DMCC season kicked off its first round of the year. The event took place in Montmagny Quebec at the Autodrome Montmagny. Everybody was excited about the first round but right off the bat it didn't look too good as the forecast called for rain and lots of it.

Walking around the pits it was cool seeing some of the new cars and new faces. Dom Desrosier unveiled his new 350z running a LS and some killer graphics. Dany "Babu" Bernier and Marc Landreville  along with  a few others stuck with the same cars as last year but were running new livery for this season. A few of last  years Pro AM drivers also bumped up to the Pro ranks. It was  too bad as last  years Rookie of the Year Jeff Laflamme was set to be driving a IS300 but thanks  to  a slight mechanical issue before the event the car was parked  in the show area. So for the round  Jeff was driving his old S13 that actually  now belongs to a Pro  Am driver.

Practice  started off  great, the  track was  dry and the  drivers were putting down some crazy smokey runs. Just as we thought  we  would maybe get  lucky  it  started to  rain a  bit and  not long after we had the  first incident  of the  event when Mike Pollard went into  the  k wall. Luckily  the  crash  was not a day ender and Mikes team was  able  to  get  the  car back  together. As  luck  would have it when qualifications started the  rain started  to  pick  up  too.  Despite the  rain some really  impressive runs were being  put  down. Marc  Landreville took  the top qualification  spot with a crazy run that  in the  dry might of been perfect.  Pat Cyr actually  spun out  on his first run and put all the pressure on his 2nd pass but he was able to hold it together  and put down a solid  run.

The tandem battles  were interesting. Not  only  were  the drivers  going  up  against each  other  but they were also fighting  the  elements as  the rain  was coming  down  hard and proved difficult for drivers to find  traction. The real action was  in the  Great  8 with two upset victories. Pat Cyr lost to Claude Poirier when he  spun out and Marc Landreville  had mechanical  failure when he  ran  against Eric  Paradis. The  final 4 came  down to Jeff Laflamme vs Claude Poirier for 1st and Eric Paradis VS  Dany  Bernier for 3rd. Both Eric  and Dany  were on fire this event, driving  more aggressive then  ever.  In  the end Dany took  the  3rd spot on the  podium, his first  podium in DMCC. The battle for 1st Jeff made sure to seal the  deal and  drove hard and  earned him the top podium spot.  With  the  rain  still poring downthe  podium  was  Jeff Laflamme, Claude Poirier, Dany  Bernier and  he NOS  Energy fastest award was  given too Mike Pollard.

The  second round is only a  few weeks  away, lets  hope it will be a dry won.

SlammedEnuff 2016: Altanta, GA

They came from all parts of the region with one question in mind. Are they SlammedEnuff? To people on the outside aka Non-Car-Types; the whole idea of a slammed vehicle makes no sense but for those of us that are a part of the scene, the idea of a car sitting on stock wheels which with no real mods is just too much to bear which is why an event like the SlammedEnuff car show at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross, GA on Saturday, April 9, 2016 was such a thrill. Hundreds came to hard park, chill with…
