As with every big event, it always starts with a small pre-meet for everybody who got up on time.
This year our group was even bigger with ofcourse Alex being late…
Special addition to our group was a friend from Lex with the stance coupe. He brought Lars who was kind enough to take pictures throughout the day.
So at the local gasstation near Circuit Zandvoort, you can imagine that we were not the only cars to stop before attending the event.
This UK civic was competing in the dragracing shootout due to the markings on his window.
Also Laurens had his Integra Type-r MOT’d and roadlegal again for 2 weeks and was a last minute entry to our group. Next to the repaint and some suspension upgrades, the car was back on the road without a few of new parts, which will be shown on Hondafest.
Laurens his co-passenger Thom Kwerreveld also shot some great footage and will be writing for San-toso this year.
Next to the stand with our cars, some of us were also competing in the dragracing event helt on saturday an sunday morning.
In the picture below you can see Calvin having some late-minute discussion with the rest.
Calvin entered with his B18 Turbo Coupe, Sidney ran his B18 all-motor civic coup and Lex was running his little DOCH D-series ED Hatch.
Next to our own cars, we also love to see the other cars people bring to race. One that stood out was this Toyota Corolla station, all caged’up with lexan windows. And also the little Toyota Glaza aka pocketrockets were fun to see racing.
The thing we have been seeing for the last couple of years is STANCE. Running camber with deep wheels used to look like a thing for the bigger lexus models but Civics are getting the hang of it like this yellow EK hatch and our own Lex with his “Blackprince” Coupe with 10J wheels on the back.
For those who have missed 100% tuning last october, might have missed that our friendly belgium neighbours have a Liberty Walk kitted Nissan GTR, which looked way better in the bright sunlight from last sunday.
Ofcourse when you talk Nissan, you cannot love Jim his R33 GTR with upgraded brakes and Volk Racing Ce28N wheels. Jim again enjoyed him on the track the day before. Also 2 jewels of Datsun cars were present by the Kamikaze Speedshop.
Due the large amount of the pictures that Lars took, we won’t keep you from work any longer and continue our review of Automaxx Streetpower in the next week. Again, Thank you Lars for providing us with footage.
With only a few days left before the new dutch season is starting, we are busy with the preparation of a few cars for Automaxx Streetpower, this weekend in Zandvoort.
Cars are being worked on and of-course we are almost ready to fill up the new webshop with lots of new clothing and other stuff.
A few new pieces of our collection will be at the stand this Sunday, together with some cool cars.
Hope to see you there !
Yes we have been busy building cars and with busy times in the garage, features are not so often posted.
Honestly, we have not posted shit since august. So prepare for upcoming features.
Laurens will present a few pictures from his Easter weekend at the nurburgring. As seen in the preview above.
As you might have noticed, our webshop is off the air. This due to some minor issues with suppliers and deciding to throw out the old stuff for sale and make new things available for you soon. The plan is to have the webshop up and running with new stuff in the new few weeks.
Last sunday was the first big event of the year.
Automaxx Streetpower at the local track of Zandvoort.
Our first event as San-Toso crew and the organisation was so kind to let us do the Carlimbo.
Also their were many racers back on track with their cars for the Time Attack.
As we prayed to the cargods in the morning, they decided to answer our praying with a day full of sun.
More pictures of the Time Attack side will be uploaded this week by our webdesigner and photographer Laurens.
For now, please enjoy the pics of Pim, one of our graphical designers !
See you during Speed in Rosmalen !
