After more than a year of back-and-forth, I met Geoff Tumang outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, for the first-ever “M Fest,” an event catered to, you guessed it, BMW M cars. Sporting a purple sedan with polished Forgeline wheels, Geoff made a quick first impression by sliding through an intersection on Las Vegas Boulevard, into the parking lanes of the Palazzo hotel.
StanceWorks favorites Geoff Tumang and Kyle Deneau are back at the track and once again the stars of Nitto Tire & Driving Line’s Driver Battles. With Geoff behind the wheel of his latest Phoenix Yellow E46 M3, and Kyle behind the wheel of his new-to-him 996 911, the competition is fierce at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. As Driving Line puts it: Who’s faster down the strip?
Driver Battles: Track Edition is back for another episode at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.
Nitto has teamed up with their friends at Toyota USA to tackle some of the best off road terrain in Southern California. The Holcomb Valley trail system lies up in the mountains just across from Big Bear Lake and Big Bear mountain ski resort. Most people refer to this off road area as Big Bear, but it’s technically Holcomb Valley.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a few million, easy. At least, that’s the current exchange rate. Our friends at Driving Line and Motegi Racing recently partnered up with our friends at R Compound USA, and our very own Khalil Kassem to produce “The Life of a Wheel.” From beginning to end, we’re shown the engineering, manufacturing, and design-oriented steps that go into producing a wheel, and in particular, Motegi Racing’s new forged MR408.
In the 90s and early 2000s, the car world was defined by shootouts. The newsstands were littered with sports car comparison challenges and marques fought their place in the “Top 5” rankings of each year. 911s, Corvettes, and M3s ran through paces, testing their specs with hopes set on earning that year’s premier sports car designation.
