When we last saw Evan Brown (of Item-B) and his RX7, almost exactly a year ago, I was heralding its boisterous presence. I try to avoid superlatives, as they tend to lead to trouble and backtracking in the world of cars, but it only took one glimpse of Evan’s car to know that it was, hands down, my favorite build on a Japanese platform. In the past twelve months, that sentiment has only grown, and today, we’re excited to share the latest iteration.
Most look at Black Friday as a day to cash in on killer deals and maybe even fight a stranger over a discounted toaster oven. Hoonigan’s Black Friday may have a different take on the “holiday” but it doesn’t lack any of the chaos.

Admittedly, I’m not the world’s leading authority on what a mid 2000’s drift car should look like; however, the first time that I laid eyes on Evan Brown’s 1987 Mazda RX7, I knew that it was exactly what embodied that particular style to me.
The boys at Network A have put together Ryan Tuerck’s latest video, and to say it’s impressive is a grand understatement. “Professional Formula Drift driver Ryan Tuerck gains access to a desolate mountain road—controlled chaos ensues. Listen to his 1JZ scream as he blasts this hill climb with style and grace. A follow up to his original banger Off Seasons.
There is no way that I could possibly truly describe Gatebil, it’s just not possible. For some inexplicable reason, 44,000 people gather at Rudskogen Motorsenter in Norway, for a 3-day long, what the event organizers call “track day.” Although to call this just a “track day” would be the most serious understatement of all time.
Gatebil is way more than just a track day; hell it’s pretty much a way of life.
