FIA ERC Rally Liepaja 2016

FIA ERC RALLY LIEPAJA 2016

NO WINTER HERE

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


Global warming sucks, big time! What initially was intended to be the Round 2 of the 2016 FIA European Rally Championship (ERC), in fact had to be rescheduled as the penultimate round of the season due to the fact the winter was simply drunk! Snowflakes turned into the sandstorm and Rally Liepaja was more like Rally Acropolis instead.

TSCC & LISBURN’S OLD VEHICLE CLUB – “CARS AND COFFEE”

ONE ESPRESSO PLEASE!

On a sunny Sunday morning hundreds of petrolheads sneaked out of their beds early to give their babies a quick wash and take them out to play. No, I am not talking about real kids – I am talking about proper V12, V8, in-line 6 or 4, turbocharged, supercharged or naturally aspirated babies. Destination – Down Royal Racecourse.

BACK TO THE TOP

Volkswagen's lead driver Sebastien Ogier ended his 6 event winless streak following a superior drive in the WRC ADAC Rallye Deutschland 2016. The frenchman hadn't been at the top of the podium for quite a while and was hungry for a victory in the Volkswagen's home country. Sebastien and his co-driver Julien Ingrassia dominated the rally from day 1, setting the pace for other drivers. With no road cleaning to do on the German asphalt, the French duo were unstoppable.

When there’s something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call? If there’s something weird and it don’t look good? If you’re seeing things running through your head, who can you call? GHOSTBUSTERS...
I ain’t afraid of no ghost.

Japanese Car Culture 2016

JAPANESE CAR CULTURE 2016

BACK TO THE BASICS

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis


After a year of planning, organising and hard work on July 10 the recently opened “Titanic Exhibition Centre” in Belfast opened its doors for the first “Japanese Car Culture” automotive show; it was the first and only indoor car show exclusive to Japanese car manufacturers. Despite the depressing Irish weather hundreds of cars turned up on Sunday morning with more than 3000 spectators walking through the exhibition centre doors. It was a real eye-opener, showcasing how big and popular the Japanese Car Culture really is here in the north and south of Ireland.

YOU TAKE THE RACE AWAY, YOU TAKE THEIR LIFE AWAY

For Malachi Mitchell-Thomas 1996-2016


One doesn’t become a great racer; one is born a great racer.

Road Racing is a sport for the most fearless, insane and fastest riders in the world; it is as exciting and spectacular as it is dangerous. Danger is lurking around every corner of the track; the riders risk everything, pushing their bikes at speeds above 200 mph on public roads, and  all this risk for what: to claim that top spot of the podium or is there more to it? This dangerous race with the death is criticized by many; however, for riders it is their life, and without that there is nothing left.

GTINI Castlewellan 2016

GTINI CASTLEWELLAN 2016

UNDER THE TREE

Text and Photos: Reinis Babrovskis
In the current times where the car scene reminds me of an episode of Eastenders or Big Brother, it’s nice to see that there are still shows out there, where people can get along with each other, relax and enjoy the car scene for what it is. There’s no better show for that than the annual “GTINI Castlewellan” held on the grounds of the stunning forest park of Castlwellan, Northern Ireland.
