I absolutely love it when the fantastic humans at Corksport approach me to blog it up for them. So let’s dive right in, no time to waste.
August is kind of a sad month if you look at a calendar. No real holidays to speak of, it’s hot and miserable across the entire United States, and with the exception of Vigil of Assumption Day(whatever that is), August is kind of boring. But, look no further than the CorkSport’s Dyno Day, Show & Shine and Drag Racing on August 25th!!! It’s almost like Christmas in August. Free stuff, raffles, food and drink but most importantly, great people. Be sure to let them know if you are coming on their EVENT PAGE!
Oh, you forgot who I am. Well, I put on one of the craziest meets for us Mazda junkies. Mazda Takeover, yeah, I’m that guy that annoys you on the Facebook groups reminding you to come and have a weekend of a lifetime. You might be wondering what that has to do with a Corksport Dyno day? I will gladly tell you.
Corksport has gotten behind Mazdaspeed Idaho’s little shindig in a big way. You see, the good folks over at CS year after year make the trek, a pilgrimage if you will to Idaho for Takeover weekend. It’s only right that we return the favor! As soon as CorkSport announced their dyno day event, posts from Mazdaspeed Idaho members flooded our local page with questions, ideas, plans and straight up commitment to making the trip to CS in August.
I might be a little biased about the Mazdaspeed Idaho group being the best group of people ever, and they are. The cars in Mazdaspeed Idaho may not be showpiece material, nor are they the fastest on the planet, but us members love our Mazda’s as if they were show cars or all out HP cars.
Hell, one member sold his Gen 1 speed and within a year picked up a Gen 2 just because he loved the community more than the other community options given his other cars, so that’s saying something about not only the Mazda brand, his local Mazda community, but it says a lot about Corksport as well. Having owned his new Mazdaspeed 3 less than a week, he was the first to commit to wanting to go with the group that forms to the CorkSport dyno day! He is beyond excited to meet the people and see the building where his car part dreams come to fruition.
As of right now, I’m guessing Idaho will roll into Vancouver with 10-20 Mazda’s, which is a huge improvement over the 4 we took last year. I’m really looking forward to this event, mostly because it gives the Western Washington Mazdaspeed and Nator OR communities another group to bond with. Which is what Mazda should be about, forming and building a strong, unbreakable community that forges lifelong friendships through one shared passion. I really hope some California members make the trip as well. It’s always refreshing to see other Mazda’s, other ideas, and other builds.
I didn’t ask my boss, I told him I won’t be available because I have race car stuff to do with my race car family. And you all should tell your boss the exact same thing, and show up for one hell of a weekend out at Corksport.
See you @ CorkSport August 25th!
