Speeding B.C. motorcyclist turns himself in to police

Published July 27, 2012

Remember the name Randy George Scott? He’s that guy in British Columbia who allegedly posted video of himself riding his Yamaha at close to 300 km/h on a B.C. highway. The Saanich Police have reported that Scott turned himself in to the Kelowna RCMP just after 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening. Police have kept him in custody until his court appearance.

“We would like to thank the public and our media partners for all of the tips that were received and the publicity surrounding this incident. Our commitment to road safety in our community and our resolve in investigating incidents like this remains steadfast,” says Sgt. Dean Jantzen.

Chevy reveals Camaro NASCAR racer

For years now, Chevrolet’s entry into the NASCAR Nationwide series has been visually based on the venerable Impala. Even though NASCAR’s history is well connected to hopped up family sedans, the Impala isn’t exactly what comes to mind when one thinks race car. That is all about to change as the bowtie brand has unveiled their new Camaro-based racer which will make its race debut at the beginning of next season.

Subaru Impreza rescues stuck Dodge Ram and RV

How often has this scene played out? A weekend event is rained out and the camping area is reduced to a slippery, mucky mess. Usually some good old boys from neighbouring farms offer a hand with Dad’s tractor in exchange for a few free beers. Sometimes though a tractor isn’t really needed, as this video proves. A little bit of extra traction allowed a Subaru driver to extricate a Dodge Ram and the 5th wheel RV it was “pulling”. Not a bad deal, considering that extra bit of traction will cause the owner of the mighty Ram to eat crow for a long time!

Hooning at Lake Como in a vintage Alfa Romeo Close to twenty years ago, the rally bug hit me hard, thanks to some chance viewings of European tarmac rallies. The scenery, the crowds and the insanely cool machinery taunted me and I had to take part. Here in Canada, that means gravel roads, but in Europe they still get to play on tarmac. Cooler still, they have an active vintage rally scene that allows enthusiasts to keep the cool older machinery on the road. Watch as a team gets some “testing” done in an Alfetta Turbo in the hills above Lake Como.
