Two Wheel Tuesday: Cafe & Racers?

This weekend after a lovely walk with my wife and some of our friends (and about 10,000 other Reno-ites), we decided to check out a new coffee shop downtown that I’d been dying to see. It’s called See See’s Motor Coffee Co., and this is their second location after the success of the initial shop in Portland. It’s a hipster sort of place with great coffee and a wood/exposed brick decor motif that resonates with my generation, apparently. Being that there was a lot of foot traffic in the area on Saturday, the shop was a bit full and the lines were a bit long, but it ended up being worth it. It was nice to have a place to warm up and it also helped to have some cool bikes in the shop to check out while there. Click the jump to see some bikes and cool gear in a coffee shop.

The Hooniverse Motorsport News For January 23, 2017

There wasn’t much going on this week, there was plenty of news, but little of it was racing related. We are ramping up to all of the good stuff kicking off next weekend in Florida with the Daytona 24, however. There was a “Race of Champions” on American soil for the first time ever, and the Monte Carlo Rally took place over in Yurp. Sadly a rally spectator was killed on the first stage, reminding us that we’re not immortal. We’re seeing some entry lists filter out, so we’ll make our widely baseless Daytona predictions here as well.

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers! Oh, and be sure to tune in to The DFL Show, our racing podcast, every Thursday at 7:30 AM here on Hooniverse.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 165 – Ping-Wings

C&T 165

On this episode of the Cammed & Tubbed podcast, Jason couldn’t join us, but Cam and Tub had fun with it anyway. Brad recently spent a weekend in the bay area driving a Chevy Sprint Turbo and a Renault Twizy, Cam got some new CAMNTUB plates for his Bimmer, Brad bought a shitload of parts for his cars in recent days, Seinfeld is jumping from Crackle to Netflix, and Brad quit his day job. Somehow we got to talking about Benedict Cumberbatch…

Cam is a dear friend, and we enjoy bro-ing out. Luckily you guys get to listen in…

And, as promised, here is our “regular” episode from Tuesday, wherein we replaced our questions episode with a Detroit Auto Show-centric episode. It’s a little late, but it’s here.

This week on The DFL Show, we’ve got Brad, Pat, and Eric back for some semi-coherent conversations about racing. Granted, Eric did drink a 10% ABV beer during the recording, so he gets a little louder as the show progresses. Coherent is maybe the wrong word… We do enjoy the discussion and drift our way through various topics, including Dakar, the 24 hours of Dubai, the Chili Bowl, and the upcoming Daytona and Bathurst endurance races. We talk about how inaccessible sports car racing is to the casual fan (hopefully we make it more accessible?). Then we jump into the news, ranging from Formula 1 Silly Season to some WEC news to our breakdown of times at The Roar test session last week. Then it’s a quick quiz, our awards for the week, and a brief discussion of next week’s activities. Enjoy!

There was a minimal amount of racing this weekend, but the season is just about to crank out to full power shortly. We’ve seen our first 24 hour endurance race of the year, Dakar has rolled in to the finish line, and the midget sprint race major event was this weekend as well. There’s some pretty big breaking news this morning, and we’ll cover all of the other news you need to know from last week. If the supposed “off-season” is any indication, 2017 will have some pretty righteous racing this year. Check it out!

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 163 – Very NAIAS

C&T 163

This week on the Cammed and Tubbed Podcast, Jason, Cam, and Brad thought it would be a good idea to give you our opinions on each of the cars launched at the Detroit auto show this week. It’s a simple concept, and we do have some tangential escapes from reality here, but it’s all in good fun. This is our take on the state of the automotive industry at the moment, so maybe you’ll agree or maybe you won’t. Either way, let us know in the comments below!


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Very Naias!

In our second episode, we rejoin Cam, Brad, Sick Jason, and Rick Radcliffe to answer some listener questions and continue the conversation a bit from last week’s Friday show. We hope you enjoy this one as well.

Hooniversal Opinion: 2017 North American International Auto Show

NAIAS Cover Image

Welcome to the Hooniversal Opinion covering the 2017 North American International Auto Show. While we did have someone in attendance to offer a couple opinions, we still like to get everyone on staff talking about the new cars launched at each major auto show. This year, the Detroit-based automotive show is perhaps somewhat lacking in excitement. We’ve been covering the show for years, and this one might be the least interesting show we’ve seen lately. Perhaps that is because most cars are hyped well before they actually reach the show floor on social media and advance looks? In any case, here are our opinions on each and every new car shown. Be sure to leave your opinions in the comments below, and share with your friends to see what their opinions are as well.

The DFL Show: Episode 33 – Thanks Internet!

Stef and Pat and Joel get together for a fun gather around the Skype Machine to discuss racing this week. Sadly Eric’s wife was sick, Duncan was busy, and I had weather-related failures, so we have *excuses* for not being on board. In my absence, they talk about IMSA’s Roar Before The 24, some Dakar stuff, a bit of ranting about Formula E and their sim race during CES. It’s a reasonably good time had by all. You should probably listen if you are waiting for the new season to start up. More next week!

Introducing The 2016 Hoon’s Choice Award!

hoons-choice

It’s become a common theme in recent years that the Hooniversal Car of the Year voting inevitably gets hijacked by some fanbase or another. Think DRIFT TRUCK! NASCARLO! LeMons! POLAND! MOTORCYCLES!?

In any case, we have decided that the editors and contributors would like to have a say in awarding our favorite thing of the year without taking over the voting process or altering the voting in some way.

HCOTY is still a thing, and we’ll continue with it going forward, as it’s a ton of fun to administer. We simply want to have our voices heard and commend one car/person/thing or another for their efforts in 2016. For the first year, I’ve repurposed one of my old SCCA trophies with a piece of scratch paper tacked on to let you know it’s the inaugural HOON’S CHOISE (sic) trophy. We think you know where this is going. Don’t even think of this as being related to HCOTY, this is a damn Lifetime Achievement Award.

Go ahead and click through.

With the holidays in there to interfere, it’s been a couple of weeks since we had a Motorsport News update, but since there was some racing this weekend, let’s kick that back off again, shall we? We had a nice little 4-hour sports car race in Asia, a bit of E-sim-racing in Las Vegas, a major IMSA test at Daytona, Porsche testing in Spain, and a whole lot of other news that we’ve missed since we last had news. Oh, and don’t forget those glorious YouTube clips you all love, I’d never forget those.

Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse.
