As you may remember I blogged about the Subaru Gymkhana video a couple of weeks ago, well.. The second Gymkhana video from Ken Block, Subaru and DC Shoes has been released with the spanking new 09 Scooby WRX STi.
The small bundle of joy was obviously feline-fine in his dangerous surroundings (that was an awful pun, I apologise).
Rather extraordinarily, the tiny fluff-ball even got himself under and into a staff member’s engine bay! A problem with the catalytic converter apparently – that too, was awful. I’m just clawing these jokes out of thin air.
The moral of the story is – get Pet Insurance – like our little Flux car park friend, all pets are only a whisker away from danger… and expensive vet bills!
I am happy to report however, that this story does have a happy ending. The thrill-seeking kitten survived his car park nightmare… The RSPCA were on hand to capture and care for him. They inform us after a good feed he will be back to purrrfect condition and given to a loving new family… awww.
Last Sunday, thousands of French car fans descended on the Rockingham Racing Circuit for the Adrian Flux French Car Show 2009. The Show was a big hit, with the great weather and the large array of activities and live action on offer. This included Track and Rally racing, trade stands, car clubs, live stunt teams, the F1 pit stop challenge and the Rockingham virtual racing game.
Attracting the largest amount of attention though was the Flux Babes. Although they were having their pictures taken for most of the day, they found time to collect for charity, drift with Opposite Lock and have the OTT Stunt team jump over them.
A good day was had by all except the people who’s cars got caked in brown dust from the rally circuit.
If you are interested in your French cars, then check out influx. This month influx has taken on a French theme, with some great articles on the monstrous Renaultsport Mégane R26R and one of the biggest fans of the iconic Citroën DS.
Although there isn’t very many pictures a the moment here are some of the places I found some:
Here is a video of a truely mental man, Ken Block, in a truely mental car, Subaru WRX STi…
If you have an airfield, hangers and a friend with a Segway, please do not try this at home.
Generally as a society we’re used to hearing how “Chris hit a deer yesterday, going to be expensive to repair”, or “Jane nearly hit a pheasant last week”, or even a call to your insurer “I hit another car at a roundabout…”
So would anybody believe you if you turned around and said “my car’s been entrapped by a load of caterpillars”? Probably not, but I suspect you might have an open mind after seeing this pack!
I hope this doesn’t happen to my Honda Civic…
