Hot rod club set to launch 25th annual old time drags at Ashcroft This weekend (June 8 to 10), George Criddle will aim his 700 horsepower 1933 Willys coupe race car down the quarter-mile Eagle Motorplex Drag Strip outside Ashcroft for the ALYN EDWARDS 25th year in a row. Classic His car is capable RIDES of going the quartermile distance from a standing start in just over nine seconds. The highly modified 80-year-old Willys coupe will be travelling approximately 225 kilometers per hour (140 mph) when the car trips the timing device at the end of the track. The 67-year-old driver says he has an ongoing need for speed. Criddle, whose business is rebuilding automatic transmissions, originally built his Willys coupe into a street rod from a pile of pieces purchased at a swap meet 30 years ago. He traded a rebuilt transmission and torque converter for the project car. He used his car to tow a tent trailer to hot rod meets around the Pacific Northwest. When the Langley Loafers began their Oldtime Drags at the newly opened Eagle Motorplex Drag Strip in 1988, Criddle was there with his drag car and he hasn’t let his foot off the accelerator since. “I’ve been at every one and I’ll be there once again,” he enthuses. “Over the years, I’ve just been putting more power in the tube chassis. You just get hooked on speed.”

the oldest hot rod clubs in the country. The Langley Loafers Hot Rod Club was conceived in a supermarket parking lot in April 1957. A group of young car enthusiasts had gotten together after seeing similar car clubs start up in other communities. John Halvorsen was at the first meeting and did the design for the original aluminum Langley Loafers plaque that full members would hang below their rear license plate. “There were a dozen or so car crazy guys in town with modified custom cars that got the idea to form our own club,”

His engine is a Ford 351 Windsor stroker which has a 434 cubic inch displacement and will lift the front end of the Willys coupe off the drag strip pavement when the “Christmas tree” timing light turns green. The Oldtime Drags competition for pre-1972 cars is held at drag strips in both Ashcroft and Mission. Last year, Criddle got knocked out of first place in the hot rod category in the last race. Criddle and 30 other hot rod drag racers have started their own class and have signed up sponsors including Big Rig, Seattle Tool Canada and Lucas Oil. The Oldtime Drags are run by one of

Nissan Canada and PowerStream demo the LEAF to Home charging system Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

Nissan and its strategic partner, PowerStream, made history recently when they showcased an interactive exhibit demonstrating the integration of electric cars like the Nissan LEAF into the home with the latest Smart Grid technologies. The display, which marks the first reallife demonstration of V2H technology in Canada, took place at Georgian College in Barrie. “V2H” stands for the “Vehicle to Home” system, which enables energy that is stored in an electric vehicle’s batteries to be used in residential homes. With a 24kW lithium-ion battery, the Nissan LEAF is able to provide the typical Canadian household with enough electricity for a full day, when the battery is fully charged. The “LEAF to Home” electricity supply system, which achieves high capacity and reliability only possible with a vehicle battery, is swiftly gathering attention as a new form of infrastructure, and as a contributing factor to energy saving and alternate energy use. For example, cutting off one’s own household from the power system network when demands are highest would be a significant contribution towards the stable supply of power.

SLS AMG + 178mph golf ball = worlds’ farthest golf shot caught in moving car The U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the 2013 Acura RDX a Top Safety Pick.

All-new 2013 Acura RDX joins Top Safety Pick vehicles Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

The all-new 2013 Acura RDX has received the highest possible safety rating of Top Safety Pick from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes, plus rollover performance based on ratings in the Institute’s tests. The all-new 2013 RDX, along with the 2012 TL, MDX, and TSX sedan and Sport Wagon, have all earned IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick ratings and the highest possible score of GOOD in all four Institute tests, including the rigorous roof-strength test. For 2013, a revised four-wheel disc brake system on the RDX teams with

an anti-lock braking system and Brake Assist to further enhance safety and greater driver control. To meet the federal government’s new standard (FMVSS 216) for roof crush resistance, the RDX body incorporates several new structural enhancements in the roof and side pillar areas. Standard safety equipment on all Acura models includes Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, ABS, dual-stage/multiple-threshold front airbags, front-side airbags with passenger side Occupant Position Detection System, side curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions, front seats with integrated active head restraints, front seatbelts with automatic tensioning system and load limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System and Daytime Running Lights.

Formula 1 legend and DTM driver David Coulthard and professional golfer Jake Shepherd set a Guinness World Record May 30 at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, as part of a viral film for Mercedes-Benz. Coulthard, who was driving a 571 hp Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster at 120 mph, caught a golf ball in the cockpit of the moving car which was 275 metres from the tee, and hit by Sheperd at an astonishing 178 mph. This amazing achievement secured the world record for the furthest golf

shot caught in a moving car in only the second attempt of the day. The outstanding feat of skill was captured on film and will be launched in early July to celebrate the power of the SLS AMG Roadster which, thanks to its AMG hand-assembled M 159 V8 engine, rockets to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. “This world record attempt is definitely one of the most unusual things I’ve ever been asked to do with a car!” Coulthard said. “Jake Shepherd was great to work with and the performance of the SLS AMG Roadster made driving to catch a mid-air golf ball even more exciting.”

Former FI driver David Coulthard driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG actually was able to catch the golf ball hit by pro golfer Jake Shepherd in mid air to set a new Guinness World Record.

LIMITED TIME OFFER

Did you know? The largest speeding fine was $1,000,000 to a Swedish man who got was doing 180mph in Switzerland. Switzerland has no fixed penalties for speeding; instead the ticket price is based on the speed and the salary of the driver in question.

New stylistic notes for Ferrari: the SP12 EC is born Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

For a Ferrari enthusiast and great musician like Eric Clapton, a one-off car just had to be produced. Designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and the engineers from Maranello, the SP12 EC was created as homage to Clapton’s career and his long-lasting experience as a Ferrari owner. His story is told in the latest edition of Ferrari Magazine. The world-famous guitar player has been attached to one particular Ferrari model: the 512 BB, of which he has owned three over the years.

So his desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia. Exclusively in the latest issue of the Ferrari Official Magazine Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born. Meticulous attention in terms of style and technology was paid to the proportions and architecture of the SP12 EC (Eric Clapton) – which is part of Ferrari’s One-Off Program – making this exceptional car even more significant. Just like music is created, applying the right notes in the right places to build a musical score, so was the creative process behind the SP12 EC.

Exclusively in the Ferrari Official Magazine Eric Clapton, talked about his passion for Ferrari and his one-off model.

Western Speedway hosts the annual Strawberry Cup Saturday champion Ryan Wade is in third spot with 324 points and will be looking to win his first feature of the year, club president Dave Reside sits in third, only three points behind Wade at 321. Rookie driver Brandon Steen rounds out the top five with 313 points on the strength of his second-place finish at the last race. Other drivers expected to challenge for the win include former champion Brian Clutchey and Darryl Crocker, who debuted his new car last race. The Old Time Racing Association will make their second start of the year on Friday. These beautiful cars from the ‘30s and ‘40s resemble the first cars that raced at Western in the 1950s and ‘60s and always put on a great show. George “The Jet’ Jenson will be looking to make it two wins in a row after his victory at the opening race; others expected to fight for the win include Tom Cinnamon and two sets of father-and-son teams,

chased Stewart to the checkered flag in both features, and last time out set fast time and won the fast heat. The next three positions are separated by only three points. Sidney’s Rob Scott and Chris Root have 112 and 111 points respectively, with Saanichton’s Paul Verhagen is at 110. New drivers expected to be out for the first time this year include last year’s champion Jesse Dardengo, Deter Lejeune and Lance Wade. Winged driver Matt Mansell should be back in action after running in the Idaho Speedweeks last weekend for Winged Sprint Cars. The Island Series Stock Cars will run on Saturday and leading the way will be points leader Cody Aumen from Duncan. Aumen is leading the points with 387, with Kyle Cottam at 364. Cottam picked up his first ever main event win May 26, while Aumen set a new track record and finished third in the main. Defending

At this year’s Le Mans 24-Hour race, Audi will use a digital rear-view mirror employing the latest active matrix OLED (AMOLED) display technology.

Audi looks into the future with digital rear-view mirror Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

When the Audi factory drivers tackle the Le Mans 24 Hours (June 16 and 17) a very special technology will enhance their vision. Used for the first time in a closed LMP sports prototype, the digital rear-view mirror provides a clear view of the rear and thus substantially improves active safety. Aside from the physical and mental strain in endurance racing, life for the quick racers compared with their DTM colleagues is made more difficult by the special aspect of totally different vision. A camera of very light weight and dimensions of just a few millimeters sits behind the antennas on the roof of the Audi R18. It captures the action at the rear on film and transmits the information to the cockpit as digitalized data. The racing situation behind the vehicle is shown on a screen that sits in the place where an inside mirror is typically located. This has only been made possible by the latest diode technology. Instead of conventional light-emitting diodes an active matrix OLED (AMOLED) display is used. Its name has been derived from organic semiconductors. Their major advantage: Like displays, AMOLED screens can show multicolored images and offer better resolution thanks to particularly small pixels with diameters of merely around 0.1 millimeters. Outstanding image quality and short response time are further positive properties of AMOLEDs.

Smart material use drives Cadillac ATS performance Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

Cadillac engineers have used a wide variety of materials to make sure the new ATS that goes on sale this summer meets performance and weight goals.

When engineers set out to make the all-new 2013 Cadillac ATS as light as possible they used advanced materials to minimize weight throughout the compact luxury sports sedan but never compromised performance capability. Lightweight parts such as an aluminum hood and magnesium engine mounts help ATS achieve a curb weight less than 1,542 kilograms (3,400 lbs), and highway fuel efficiency is expected to be lower than 6.5L/100km. Keeping weight down also enabled balanced distribution of vehicle weight that helps delivers a world-class driving experience. One seemingly heavy way the ATS engineering team achieved its performance goals was using cast

iron in the rear differential instead of aluminum, a learning taken from the performance-tuned CTS-V. The differential provides torque and rotation to the wheels, and ATS’s cast iron design helped distribute weight equally between the front and rear wheels to provide agile handling while reducing noise and vibration. Cadillac benchmarked it against world-class competition to deliver a driving experience that is as well tuned for sound as for ride and handling. The ATS team also achieved significant weight reduction in the rear suspension by using specially engineered straight steel links with lightening holes instead of using aluminum. Inside the ATS, the vehicle team took advantage of a new process that places sound-absorbing material between two layers of laminated steel. By doing so, Cadillac refined a part and process it pioneered on CTS.

The New BMW 7 Series combines sporting elegance & superb refinement Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

The new BMW 7 Series reinforces BMW’s commitment to building the finest flagship model possible with a focus on sporting elegance, superb refinement and luxurious comfort combined with efficient yet high performance powertrains. Small design enhancements, including new optional Adaptive LED headlights, accentuate the strong, powerful lines and balanced proportions inherent to the 7 Series. Inside and the pursuit of innovation is apparent with an enhanced control display and a new optional multi-function Instrument panel providing access to the latest in BMW’s ConnectedDrive technology.

Additional in-car refinement measures and further optimization of the 7 Series’ chassis have led to an even higher level of driving comfort for the occupants. With a revised range of highly efficient engines, a standard eight-speed automatic gearbox and the full array of EfficientDynamics technologies, the new BMW 7 Series combines enhanced performance with significantly reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The latest BMW 7 Series is also the first to be offered an ActiveHybrid in both standard and long-wheelbase guises courtesy of a 3.0-litre sixcylinder engine mated to a synchronous electric motor and lithium-ion high performance battery which will allow for electrically-powered driving at given times.
