BwarpKarts 2012

Finally getting around to posting this up….taken long enough….
Bwarp.net.nz decided to hold a bit of a karting tournament to settle all the trash talk that was going down after we posted up some other photos of us fanging karts around.

A selection of 3 driver teams were invited to race they were:

Rangi Kustomz
Team Sloot
Skids On Krew (SOK)

The date was set for 6th of June and North City Indoor Raceway was booked for ‘Le Mans style’ endurance racing.

120 lap total, split between 3 drivers. each driver did 20 laps and then swapped, so they got two sessions. With this style also comes skill and teamwork when doing driver swaps. Driver changes can make or break a race for the team.

All drivers lined up down the front straight and sprinted for the karts on the word go.

The battles were raging on the race track with Jasper (Rangi Kustomz) desperately trying to fend off James (R’s Garage), Dan (Team Bwarp) trying to get the pass on Loryn (Team Sloot), and everyone else trying to safely pass Craig (SOK) who was spending time getting to know the tyre wall. Milk (PP&C) also found a new ‘hot line’ running straight through pit lane at full tilt after the brake lever on his kart broke.

After 120 laps, Rangi Kustomz came out on top with R’s Garage close behind (even though Kris stopped 1 lap too early, and had to get back in the Kart and finish his last lap)

anyway – here’s some action shots.

The WRX gets a Wash

As seen in a previous blog post: “Clean – by Craig Hume”, we know a guy, who knows a guy, who seems to know how to clean a car. Craig is a man with extreme attention to detail and probably some form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder… It certainly works in his favour though.
His cleaning skills have been put to good use at R’s Garage over the long weekend, as Reuben’s WRX project got a big tidy up after having 3 years worth of workshop dust stuck to its paint.
Craig entered the garage to see the WRX sitting unwashed in the corner. To use his own words, Craig was “quietly crying inside” at the state of the vehicle. Naughty Reuben!!
Here’s some mid-wash pics. I purposely snapped a photo mid wash so show the difference. Keep in mind, one side is still wet at this stage, it’s not fucked paint or anything.

LOOK AT THE FILTH!!

And now – for a finished and dried product.

Craig did a full wash and dry, and then proceeded to use a clay bar on the entire car to get the workshop filth off it, and then gave it a thick coat of wax (whatever wax he used – it smelt delicious!)

 If you would like your car to have a shine you could use as a mirror, then get in touch via facebook or leave a comment on this post and we can pass your details onto Craig. He charges a small fee for a big job. This could be the birthday your car needs. 
PEACE.

Quick Snap: JD’s AE70… again

This car is just so damned photogenic. Everytime we go out for a roll around, we find somewhere nice to put it up on a postcard.
As my man, David Dallas says – “Take a picture – ka chiiiiik”

Enjoy the long weekend folks – drive safe!
