Very excited to announce that I’ll be attending a track day at the brand new racetrack in the Okanagan this weekend. From the few videos I’ve seen, this really looks like a world class track with a great flow to it and some very high speed corners. At the same time, it’s surprising to see […]
In very specific circumstances, the Tesla Model S P85D might actually be “the world’s fastest sedan”, but that definitely doesn’t include the racetrack. On this year’s Car & Driver Lightning Lap, the “fastest sedan” ended up in a distant last place (full results here) with a time around VIR that matches the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. […]
Earlier today a video comparison was released by Motor Trend on the Mark 7 Golf R and the brand new Focus RS. Both these cars are on the short list of vehicles to replace my Fiesta ST with, so this video is of some significance to me. That being said, I bought the Fiesta ST […]

This year I had the chance to take out both my Fiesta ST and my father’s new Lamborghini LP580-2. While the sign-up was pretty […]

Here’s a compilation of dashcam clips I caught in July, mostly on my Thinkware F770. I like how this camera has an easily accessible manual recording button but the voice prompt that follows is quite annoying when I upload these clips. Unfortunately it can’t be disabled but I think I’ll just mute it in the […]
