    New England Forest Rally: 2018

    It’s that time of year again, the time of year when Rally cars blast through the back-roads of Maine and New Hampshire, turning quite little towns into bustling race hubs. Bringing countless spectators and competitors in from all over the country, just to get a piece of the action. It really is an event to check out, and we highly encourage anyone who is even slightly interested to go and check it out. It’s a free event and it’s worth every penny of gas and food you will spend. I mean, COME ON, IT’S FRICKEN RALLY CARS! It’s a blast! See you all at next years Forest Rally, I know we will be there.

    SMCM Season Opener 2017

    Article by: Ben Getchell Some may say that it’s just a “bunch of cars in a parking lot” or that it’s a “waste of money” to invest so much time, money, and effort into building a the vehicle of your dreams. Well, that may be so…but to a community of 4,000+ enthusiasts, this passion is something completely different. It means building a drag car to run a 10 second quarter mile, because that’s what you have dreamt about since you were a wee young lad. It means slamming your car to the ground, and scraping over speed bumps, because “stance life” is the only life for you. It’s restoring a…

    Club Loose North: Snow Drift

      A rally school, drift cars, and a dirt course covered in snow, this is where we found ourselves this past Saturday. ClubLoose North and Team O’Neil Rally School partnered up for Snow Drift; where the Drifters from ClubLoose could unleash their drift missles on a snowy rally course.   The normal parking lot at New Hampshire Motor Speedway had been cast aside for a winding dirt road, tucked in the backwoods of New Hampshire. The course, where the student drivers at Team O’Neil normally learn car control on their way into the rally world, was handed over to the fun loving drift group and a different style of racing…

    Club Loose North Spring Fling

    Three words can sum up my Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: Non Stop Drifting. The drivers from Club Loose North are an absolute blast to be around, friendly to talk, you get the sense that they appreciate you coming to watch them enjoy what they love doing. It’s drifting, it’s man throwing machine around a track sideways and it’s so much fun to watch. If you are able to make it to any of the events this summer do it, it’s well worth the $15 entry fee and you get more then your money’s worth of sideways action. The drifting is split into 3 Groups: C Class: Your beginner…
