It’s hard to follow the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a stateside event. We can’t, in good conscience, compare, but that’s not for a lack of impressive machinery at the Sonoma Speed Festival. From May 30th through June 2nd, an incredible fleet of cars descended upon the iconic Sonoma Raceway, formerly known as both Infineon and Sears Point.
With the Goodwood Festival of Speed less than a month away, we figure now’s better than ever to take a look back: One of our favorite motorsports photographers, Peter Aylward, has made good on his promise to treat us to the imagery of the Goodwood Festival of Speed. For those somehow unfamiliar, the Goodwood FoS celebrates historic race cars of all walks, from vintage to modern, as long as the machine offers automotive, cultural, or community significance.
It’s been more than a minute since we last put together video content for YouTube. Thankfully, our friends at Turtle Wax prompted the idea of a new 4-part series: In The Shop With StanceWorks. In part one, we finally take the Model A out to the outskirts of Irvine for a video shoot, something we’ve been meaning to do since the start of the year.
I hadn’t planned on attending Spa Classic this year. In fact, I nearly missed the event entirely. Luckily, a friend texted me, ‘I’m going to Spa. You should come. There will be Group C.’. He said the magic words… Group C. I’ve always wanted to experience these mythical beasts in the flesh and this would be my chance.
We had some small hold ups on the way to the track but we made it just in time.
Since the latest StanceWorks project made its debut, we’ve been waiting for the chance to share it in best Hoonigan fashion possible: an episode of Build Biology. As the Hoonigan crew puts it: “We’ve been following our friend Mike Burroughs’ builds for years, from Rusty Slammington to his previous Model A project. But this – this is some next level work. Mike’s 2018 SEMA build is a Ford Model A based, supercharged, Coyote Powered monster of a pickup truck.
