Here at Motive DVD we love our racing, weather it be drag, drift or circuit. We also want to help encourage more people to race and keep it off the street. Our aim with Motive Drag Nights is to that, and, to provide more media coverage for workshops and car owners who are building mental cars, as well as give our viewers more great videos to watch. We also will be inviting some crazy cars to the track each time, giving spectators more cool cars to see.
On the second Wednesday of every month, starting July 13th, Motive DVD will have a reserved lane at Sydney Dragway. We will be filming and featuring cars in our lane to produce videos for our Youtube Channel and DVDs. Our aim is to showcase some of the best and quickest cars around. To be in our lane is simple. Send us an email or PM on Facebook, tell us what car you have and what mods, and we’ll let you know if you can have a spot. You still have to pay and enter, either online or at the gate, as normal. We give a list of names to accreditation at 4pm on the day so they know who is on the list.
Supporting sponsors of Motive DVD, Macina Magica, have announced they’ll be holding their GT-R restoration shop launch party September 3. If you’re interested in having your GT-R stored, restored, or repaired, these guys will be the ones to talk to. They’re experts in the GT-R restoration business, and we’ve seen first-hand their outstanding workmanship. If you’re interested in going along to the opening, you’ll have to send Tim, the owner, an email as the location will remain secret at this time. For more information, head to their website http://www.machinamagica.com.au/, or email email@example.com.
With a budget much smaller than Gymkhana, these young lads have made a hilarious parody that you need to watch. Featuring some of the best performance audio we’ve ever heard, and camera work that we’re envious of… Well, maybe not, but it’s hilarious nonetheless!
Imagine if somebody was awesome enough to produce an Initial D sequence, with the new GT86? Well, it seems Toyota in the UK was that awesome and produced these badass images! Like, seriously, how cool is this? Check out the full gallery below: Continue reading →
Following on from the 2016 ST Hitec GT-R Festival Heritage display part one article, we make our way into the R-chassis realm, starting off with the R32s present on the SAU NSW heritage display. With production numbers much higher than any other R-chassis model, there was most certainly going to be plenty on display. Not just your run of the mill examples either, these were all rare examples in their own right.
Yep, we bought a Jeep! Cue the bigger boat, don’t hold back, watch the park brake and moose test comments! The WRX is gone and the new “Pimp my Wife’s Ride” vehicle is a Jeep Grand Cherokee. We must admit it was enjoyable to work on a totally different style of car , and for us, taking a different sort of modifying approach.
We will admit that Subaru WRXs have lost a big of their mojo over the years. They’ve been softened since the days of Colin McCrae in the GC8. But it watching this video doesn’t change your opinion of WRXs, nothing will. This is simply one of the most epic pieces of driving you will ever watch. The Isle of Man track has no room for margin of error and Mark Higgins drives it with total commitment. A huge set of balls AND some screws lose combined with incredible talent and track knowledge is what is needed to put down a lap like this. Turn the volume up and get it on the big screen!
There are simply no words for how impressive SAU.NSW was at the 2016 ST Hitec GT-R Festival. Their level of organisation, dedication, and the quality of the workmanship was unsurpassed. Terry and the SAU.NSW team ran an extremely tight ship, that saw them setting up hours before anyone else.
Nulon Oils are one seriously kickass supporter of grassroots motorsport in Australia. So much so, that not having them involved in our Tarmac autocross would have been a serious crime indeed. Nulon Oils even had their very own display at the event, which displayed two insanely cool R34 GT-Rs.
We absolutely love it when we get to take something new for a good strop. Testing, and comparing these late model vehicles provides a good base for our own projects. Are we on the right track? Missing the mark? These late model examples are a good insight into OEM progression, and this is good for tuners such as ourselves.
The Nulon Oils Ultimate GT-R competition is exactly that. It’s the hunt for the ultimate GT-R down the quarter mile, around our tarmac rally course, and it had to impress in one of the GT-R drag racing categories. One GT-R that managed to tick all the right boxes is Michael Hill’s R34 GT-R. Nulon Oils support grassroots motorsport around the country and had a $500 prize up for grabs for this category, along with a year’s supply of Nulon oil.
There is no denying that some of Australia’s cleanest GT-Rs were on display at the 2016 ST Hitec GT-R Festival and those who wanted to compete were entered into the Machina Magica Show and Shine. There was everything from original, to the completely mental, all in one place. Below are the winners of each category, complete with photos:
