We had the pleasure of meeting Peter Vincent on the coast of Maine, and filming his beautifully put together SLC SuperLight Coupe. With it’s mid-engine LS3 and pushrod coil suspension, this car is anything but a slouch.
Be sure to check out TBL Media for more videos.

Last Friday (12/2/16) We had the chance to sit in and participate during a Live Q+A for Drift the Streets-Lewiston, an event coming next year that is going to feature one of the biggest car shows in the state and competition drift cars, battling it out in downtown Lewiston.
There are still some details that need to be worked out for the event to go off without any issues and to get a feel for the questions and any concerns that the public and community may have, Don’t Panic Consulting hosted the Live Q+A. It was a chance for people to fire off any questions they may have about the drifting, the parking, the car show, ticket prices, anything and everything.
During the Q+A we got a chance to walk the actual drift course, a technical style course with plenty of great viewing spots for spectators to catch all the action. It’s a Sprint style course, Point A to Point B, which brings the drivers through some tight corners, a fast slalom, and in the bottom and out of the top of a parking garage. The 64 drivers this course is designed for are pro-caliber drivers, the racing will be side to side, tandem duels. It looks like it is going to be a great time with local food, nice cars and plenty of tire smoke.
We have had the opportunity to attend a couple meetings with Don’t Panic about Drift the Streets, and honestly it is in the right hands. This is a group that wants to bring an amazing event to our area and understands how much something like this means to the local community and car culture. They aren’t afraid to ask questions and reach out for help from others in the area, if they have a question they ask it. With an event that is this big, that is exactly what you want to see from the people running it.

Every year we make the trek out to the beautiful state of Vermont for Wolfsgart. Wolfsgart is a European auto show in Essex Junction right outside of Burlington. The unique thing about this event is during the entire weekend there is always something going on to make the weekend the best it can be. They even do an 85 mile cruise through the mountains. The photos that were taken inside were apart of the Alpha class which is a where you apply to have your car showcased and judged among some of the craziest builds around. Enjoy the photos and be sure to check us out on Facebook and Instagram!

This past weekend marked the second year of Vacationland VagFair which is a VW/Audi car show. Vagfair was started by VW geek Cory Sterling in York, PA. Cory plays a huge roll in the VW community, and since he has moved up to this neck of the woods he started a show for us mainers. The show is held at the beautiful Thomas Point Beach and Campground in Brunswick. We were able to capture some of the best well put together cars from all over the New England area and beyond. We took some photos at the show and afterwards we went into the campground for more shots. Enjoy!

Maine’s Finest got the chance to do a short Q+A with the Face of ClubLoose North, Russ Barcomb. If you have made it to a ClubLoose event, chances are you have seen the man with the chest length beard, flying around the track in either a golf cart or a moped, picking up debris and resetting cones and tires. That’s the man we got a chance to talk to, and that man is a HUGE part on why we are still talking about ClubLoose today, and going to events in the near future. Russ Barcomb everyone, the man, the myth, the legend:
MF: What is Clubloose all about for those who don’t know?
RB: Club Loose is a worldwide club of bad ass men and woman who spit fire and shred tires.
MF: Is Clubloose a nationwide club?
RB: It’s worldwide now. NJ is where it all started 14 yrs ago when Matt Petty and his bros needed a place to drive, then John Wagner started hosting events as CLUBLOOSE II. I then started doing event in NH, now Eric O Sullivan is hosting events in Ireland.
MF: Where did you get your start in drifting?
RB: I started drifting in NH and Mass. parking lots on Sunday mornings at like 6 am, no one was up at 6am EVER on a Sunday, no police. So I’d do runs in warehouse sections and then I started going to Star Speedway in Epping a circle track, traveled all over the east coast to random events,then Clubloose went to NHMS and we have been shredding there for a few years.
MF: What was your first car?
RB: My first car was a Buick Century. lol gramma ride. My 1st drift car was a 1989 Nissan 240sx I got it 100% stock from a family in mass, had skittles in the seats melted crayons etc/ you have seen it I’ve had it for about 14 yrs now. My Maroon S13.5 Sr20det etc etcPhoto Credit: Kevin Nguyen
MF: Do you see yourself growing the club and making more events?
RB: 100% yes. I have no interest in doing this once and moving on. When My son Deven, who is now 8 yrs old goes to his 1st event as a driver (8 yrs) and learns to drive and is taught life lesson by his peers within the club, then and only then will I think about moving on AFTER a few years.
MF: Are there different Classes, and if so what is the difference?
RB: We have 3 diff groups now. C B & A C being 100% new 1st timers. We set them up with a hand out and with a ton of info on it, for car set up and driver tips. After they can show me they can handle the car FULLY in c group they are moved in to B, which allows them to now open up the course a bit and use the back section. I’ve seen a handful of cars get sent to the junk yard when the rear section is not done right, or someone has a failure in brakes. Once B group drivers have shown me they can control the car and themselves, you can see “fear” or lack of confidence in a drivers actions and listening to his throttle control, once I see they are 100% confident in themselves and can shred the course over and over with no spins I’ll send them up. A group is where a cage is needed and they will be running with other cars door to door, growing more skills and showing the newer drivers what to look forward too
MF: Is it all for fun or is their competitive events?
RB: 100% grassroots drift event no comps. we like to “keep drifting fun” everyone helps each other out and strives to be good drivers and people.
MF: How do new people get involved?
RB: Show up? If you would like info, clubloose-north.com has all the info for drivers and spectators. We hold events all summer long and all are welcome. We even had a few birthdays last event, Logan turned 6, and also had a older woman I’d assume 70, filming from a IPad. It’s a bunch of fun and each drivers personality is shown in his car and driving. It’s for families, dogs, cats, young, and old, as you’ve seen it’s just a bunch of wild boys.
