Comments Off on TG’s Lamborghini Huracán Performante review
What do we have here?
The new Lamborghini Huracán Performante. Or, what happens when you lock a Huracán in a cage, feed it raw meat and poke it with a pointy stick. You know the drill: like the Gallardo Superleggera before it, this is the harder, faster, stickier and more track-focused version of Lambo’s baby supercar designed to monster race tracks, but retain a whiff of usability on public roads. If Lambo had a GT3 badge, this would be wearing it.
Yes, we have driven it already, but that was an early prototype wrapped in black and white sticky tape and we were limited to a few laps of the track. This is the finished article, and while we have the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (Lamborghini prefer to call it Imola for some reason?) at our disposal once again, we’ll also be braving the Italian highways.
Let’s talk horsepower.
Good call. The engine is still a naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre [...]

Comments Off on Lamborghini Motorsport Driver Education Track Day @ Area 27
Incredible, this is how we would describe this past weekend at our Driver Education Track Day. Natural talent and pure adrenaline came forth in all of our drivers and we could not have asked for a better outcome.
This event started late morning on Sunday, May 28th with a majority of our drivers convoying together from the Lower Mainland up to beautiful Osoyoos. With a quick pit-stop in Princeton, the crew traveled further and arrived, mid-afternoon, to the spectacular Spirit Ridge resort. After freshening up and relaxing after a long drive, the group got together in a private banquet hall for a filling, BBQ-style dinner and an itinerary refresh by our crew of skilled instructors.
Early Monday morning came quickly, and after breakfast our group gathered together and travelled, convoy-style, to Oliver, BC – this is where the challenging Area 27 track is situated. After an informative sit-down session with our instructors and the on-site flag [...]
