Eurokracy 2013

11 Jul, 2013

A couple of weeks have passed since Eurokracy 2013 and we are still basking in all the awesomeness it had to offer. Each year Eurokracy seems to get bigger with even more to offer spectators. This year the event changed locations to Napierville Dragway; a NHRA drag facility located South of Montreal.

The gates opened early for exhibitors to setup and shine up their cars and despite the strange on and off again weather with sun, rain, sun, rain and haze the event was flooded with spectators. The wide variety of Euro's and other stanced cars were a feast for the eyes. Scoping out all the license plates this year's Eurokracy brought in cars from all across the province, Ontario and even the United States.

Over the course of the day spectators were treated to a live DJ, full-out drag racing which included a wheelie popping FC RX-7 with a 350 under the hood, a beefed up S4 and even a Shelby Cobra which we caught up with cooling down the supercharger with some bags of ice.

In addition to racing the car limbo event was changed up a bit for all fairness, splitting contestants for static vs. bagged and also adding the neck-breaker segment requiring the contestants to cross over speed bumps to see if they scrap or clear.

Of the hundreds of sick cars we spotted during the course of the day, the MK1 in the Unix Performance booth was easily one of our favorites, we also liked the Yellow MK5 all the way up from New York and always good to see my friends at JD Motorsports rocking their supercharged VR6 with a freshly hydro-dipped valve cover.

As always Eurokracy was a complete blast, rain or shine and we can't wait to see what will be new in 2014.
