The DFL Show: Episode 83 – Shrimping Event With Ralph Dale

On this episode, Brad and Eric sit around to discuss the current state of motorsport. We talk a bit about some events we’ve been on recently, Eric was judging at a very snowy Lemons race, and then dig into the nitty gritty. There are a few cool things coming up, like Radwood @ HooptieCon (check out radwood.org for more), and Brad gets to have lunch with Ralph Dale Earnhardt, Jr. this weekend. PRI happened, Porsche announced their plans for 2018, Carmen Jorda was given a job she probably doesn’t deserve, and a bunch more news. There’s a 12-hour race this weekend, you should watch it.

2018 Hyundai Accent – Pure Automotive Honesty

The restaurant exists, the servers are actually from-Italy-Italian, and the food is great, but as I sit on the cobblestone patio noshing gnocchi I can’t help but feel lost in a dream not of my making. The Italian villa is a con, a plaster facade on an interchangeable building. I’m actually in the desert of southern Nevada just a few miles outside of Las Vegas, and it feels like a video game simulation. I feel like I’ve stepped into an open world sandbox game that has crossed the uncanny valley into proper Matrix-esque simulation. The visuals are only skin deep, as the lake is obviously man-made, and the buildings were assembled far more recently than the Renaissance, given a painted-on false age. It feels wrong. 

The juxtaposition of Hyundai’s Accent against the backdrop of Las Vegas is purely farcical. This is a truly honest car that looks out of place in the world’s most fake city.

Aston Martin Is Ready For Le Mans With A New Vantage GTE

Sweet holy Moses, there’s a new Aston Martin GTE racer in town, and we are swooning like this is our first crush. We thought their 2017-spec Vantage GT2 was rad, but this brand new 2018 version is downright gorgeous. Here it is, folks, the car that Aston Martin will use to battle against the best from Corvette, Porsche, Ferrari, Ford, and BMW in the 2018/19 World Endurance Championship megaseason. If you thought the road car was slick, just check out this monster and try not to weep from overwhelming joy. The lines of this car are so spectacularly gorgeous that you want to stare at it for hours, but then it fires up and flames shoot out of the massive side-exit exhaust and you might run away in fright. 

Full specs and more photos to see after the jump.

The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Eight Inches of Rubber

Cam and Brad decide to do their spooky Halloween episode a week early. Lots of Halloween horror questions & answers in this one.

The DFL Show: Episode 76 – The Pass

Formula 1 was in Austin and there was a pass that Brad thought should have been legal, Pat disagreed. Formula 1 continues to be dumb. Joel is back to the show for the first time in a long time, so we’re very glad to have him on the mic. He’s been all over the world, and driven some really rad stuff. There was a new Honda prototype launched during the show that turned out to be the Sports EV concept. We had a good time, hopefully you will, too.

Hooniverse Asks: What Is The Perfect Car For Radwood?

For those who don’t know yet, Radwood is a new car show series for 80s and 90s cars. Some would say these cars are misfits that don’t get attention at a “regular” car show, but at Radwood we (Yes, hello, I am one of the hosts) put them on the main stage. The first Radwood in Brisbane, near San Francisco, went off without a hitch. It went so well, in fact, that we decided to run the second one only 6 months later, this time in Anaheim, down in Orange County, California. Radwood 2 is just over a month away (so get signed up today!) and we know of at least a few people who have bought cars specifically for this show. If you had to pick one car as your 80s or 90s dream to bring to Radwood, what would it be?

Looking at the sign-ups thus far, we’ve got a few Porsche 928s and BMW 8-series. We’ve heard tell of a Bitter SC (above) and a Ferrari Testarossa coming. So today we’re asking you what your 80s or 90s poster car was. Did you have an F40 poster hung on your wall, or a 959? Do you want something more rare and esoteric like a Renault R5 Turbo II?  What’s the raddest car you can think of to bring to Radwood? (Motorcycles also accepted…)

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 231 – Diminishing Returns

In this episode of the Cammed & Tubbed podcast, our intrepid hosts return from a wonderful weekend with lots to discuss. Cam took his lovely Beth to see the lovely FLW-designed Fallingwater. Turns out, it’s a cool place. There’s a rug there that he really loves. Brad went to California for four days to drive Alex Ross’ (Sharkwerks) well-constructed 964, messed with a Bitter SC for a bit, went to Canepa cars and coffee, went for a half-day rally with Rick Radcliffe, jumped over to Laguna Seca for the 8 Hours of California (lots more about that on The DFL Show this week!) on Sunday, and then on Monday went to 034 Motorsport to drive some of their high-horsepower Audis. On Tuesday, Ferrari North America delivered a 488 Spider to Brad’s house for a couple days. No big deal…

That’s the show, go give it a listen!

2018 Cadillac Escalade – Premium Luxury At The Race Track

A few weeks ago Cadillac asked if I would like to attend the IMSA race at Laguna Seca as a guest of theirs. They offered me my choice of loaner car for the weekend, and I had already intended to go to the race anyway, so I agreed without hesitation. I chose the venerable Escalade as my weekend steed, being that it shares the same V8 (okay, a sorta similar one) as the DPi-V.R prototypes racing in the IMSA Prototype category they were there to promote. I also received Cadillac hospitality, food, and lodging for the weekend, in the interest of full disclosure. I picked up the truck, and my Canadian photographer friend, Keiron Berndt (who shot all of these glorious photos) at the SFO airport on Thursday evening and headed south to the track.
