The fourth round of the 2014 Canadian Sport Compact Series returned to the Canadian Tire Motorsports park for another action packed day of show and shine, time attack and drift competition.

With great weather days being in somewhat short supply this summer I opted to use August 10th to get a few things done around the house, but Mike Branco of MB Fotgrafi and Shannon Pink were able to take advantage of the shinning sun and roll out.

Graciously both of them have offered up their coverage for the site, thanks again guys!

Show And Shine

Like the season opener the Canadian Tire Motorsports park show and shine field was packed with a variety of different cars. There’s some show familiars here in addition to a few cars that only come out a few times a year.

I love this 300zx the mods suit the chassis perfect and it could stay like this forever and still be relevant

Can’t say I have ever seen this car before and it’s pretty crazy how aggressive those wheels look even with the flares

Who can deny the appeal of wide RPF1s with fitting rubber shoved under a Supra?

Track Cars & Track Action

For driver’s round four was the second kick at the challenging, freshly redesigned, course at the Canadian Tire Motorsports park and once again the drift course was taking no prisoners.
On the time attack side of things I’m told a few epic David Vs. Goliath-esque battles also went down.

Word on the street is that Riley will be piloting his Hardbody (instead of the Subaru pictured here) at this weekend’s TOPP drift event

Three through one at round 4., should be interesting to see how things shake out for the final round September 21st at Toronto Motorsports Park Cayuga!
