Waterfest Kruize 2012

The Waterfest Kruize is the ultimate way to kick off the Waterfest weekend – what we at PASMAG refer to as a coming of age tradition. Pulling into the JRP parking lot around 6 A.M. can be a gruelling experience for some, but for the anxious VW and Audi fans wired on coffee and energy drink, they’re ready to burn some gas.

A 500-mile trip – on the other side of the ditch no less – can also be a daunting task. Keeping the 10-car-convoy together while aiming for strategic gas stops and food are all part of the experience. Luckily, JRP supplied a filling breakfast to boost morale and get us ready for the trip.

If you’ve taken part in the Kruize before, you know that once we pass the border it’s an endurance race. You don’t want to stray too far behind or take off too far ahead because the reality of finding yourself all alone in the tri-state area – as many of have found themselves in previous years - can be quite the predicament. But, if you’re able to display some decent driving skills you will find yourself in the middle of a high-speed photo shoot. Driving through traffic while your partner documents the high-adrenalin experience is what the Kruize is all about. And, when you get there, you realize the 10-hour drive isn’t so bad.

Pioneer DJ Art Mix

The Old Union Bank in downtown Los Angeles played house to the annual Pioneer DJ Art Mix event this passed October. Against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Art Walk, which draws 10 to 15 thousand people annually, custom-designed art pieces using Pioneer's CDJ-2000nexus multi player as the canvas were auctioned off to support the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. All proceeds went toward improving music education and programs in public schools across the U.S. Bids started at only $500, and considering the Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus Professional Multi Player retails for more than two-grand, many brought in much more than a…

The seventh and final round of the DMCC series took place at the Sanair racing facility south of Montreal. It is the first time DMCC has held an event at this track to minimize driver familiarity. The track layout was a simple but, a very exciting one that was made to have crazy tandem battles. The weekend started how the season first started, rain! But after only a few hours the rain was gone and the track dried up. For the last round, a few drivers made their return after missing the last couple events, such as Jeff Laflamme, Marc…
