Do you guys remember the "PINKS" TV show? The show where Rich Christensen would line up racers at a drag stip and they would race each other for pink slips. and then later, they did "PINKS: All Out" where racers would compete in brackets for cash prizes? The show ran on SPEED and also on FOX for a minute. It was canceled years ago, and the concept bounced around for a little while. Well, Rich has acquired the concept from FOX and is bringing it back!
The owner of Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina is going to open up his raceway for a July 4th celebration of raw power, shiny paint, and testosterone. The dragway will host the PINKS crew for a taping during the July 4th weekend.
Now, you might be asking why I am telling you about a television show that is taping in NC. Well, our little site here has been extended a personal invite from Rich and Brian Bossone. They have offered a 20% racer registration discount code when you sign up for the weekend. Simply add PAO in the checkout and you will receive the discount.
They are doing a grassroots promotion of this event as they don't have a large buget to get this thing off the ground. I think it is pretty cool that they are reaching out to the forum to go straight to the car enthusiast source.
This year is a TEST for future shows, and they need all the racer and fan support they can get. Support this event and maybe next season will be coming to track near you. They will be leaving room for group gathering areas or self run car shows at the show as well. It should be a great weekend for car enthusiasts!
I, for one, hope that they keep the show about racing and don't let it devolve into the drama-fest that the old show ended up being about.
CHRISTENSEN REVIVING THE ICONIC “PINKS ALL OUT” CONCEPT
“The fact that racers and fans still want PINKS is both an honor and extremely ...humbling,” Christensen said. “Their unwavering passion is the reason I’m bringing it back. I’m hoping PINKS Week at Rockingham will become the largest... [Read More]

Although the Ford Fiesta ST is one of the most fun and adrenaline-generating hothatches out there, keeping up with a rally car is quite a tough job. But not impossible.
If you're into rally racing and developed a passion for WRC (World Rally Championship) racing in particular, there's a good chance you miss Colin McRae's flatout runs behind the wheel of his Ford Focus WRC rally car.
Add a pedigree for motorsport that sits well inserted in Ford's DNA, especially in their ST and RS models, and you'll understand why came up with a mad idea. So, what do you say about a friendly duel between a stock Ford Fiesta ST and Rally American's Ford Fiesta ST rally car?
So, we already know the Fiesta ST is well equipped for the urban jungle, and it can also send shivers down one's spine out in the open, especially on twisting roads. But what about a rally course? I mean, a real rally course, covered in snow and filled with tight corners and jumping... let's call them opportunities.
Things are pretty clear here: tarmac is the comfort zone for the Fiesta ST, but what about going beyond that limit? Well, that implies gravel and as mentioned above, a fair amount of snow. And while the Fiesta ST rally car is powered by the same engine pumping fun in the stock Fiesta ST, the racing version comes with a tuned suspension system and special tires.
Oh, I almost forgot. Automobile Magazine named the video "Destroy the Ford Fiesta ST!" which is very intriguing, but we'll let you see whether they were successful or not.

Collins Performance has given the Fiesta ST 270bhp and 265lb ft, but has our favourite fast Ford been ruined in the process?
by Rory White, 26 March 2015
What is it?:
It's a chance for fans of the superb Ford Fiesta ST either to wince and shake their heads or sit up straight and take notice, depending on how they like their hot hatches.
We did the latter when Mountune announced it was hiking the ST's power from 180bhp to 212bhp back in 2013, and the results were good. For 2015, Collins Performance has somewhat raised the bar. You see, its ST, in this state, produces 270bhp and 265lb ft.
This actually represents the third and final tier of CP's ST upgrade packages. A new Mongoose exhaust, Airtec intercooler, ITG induction system, CPE turbocharger and revised ECU mapping are your rewards for choosing to laugh in the face of tiers one and two.
The cost for going this big? A full £2965, including fitting and a discount if you let CP keep your old turbo. Our car was also fitted with the firm's Dynamic Chassis upgrade, which swaps the ST's standard front wishbone and rear beam bushes for stiffer ones, and costs a further £440.
This sort of power from a 1.6 petrol is nothing new - see Peugeot's RCZ R - but that's a car that relies heavily on its limited-slip differential. So how does a similarly potent but slippy diff-less Fiesta ST get on?
What's it like?:
Noticeably more aggressive from the moment you press the Collins Performance-branded starter button and fire it into life. Our car's burbling single-box exhaust can be swapped for a quieter twin-box item for no extra cost, but if standing out is your thing, we'd keep things as they are here.
Pulling away reveals two things. Firstly, CP hasn't messed with the gearbox, which is a very good thing: it's as slick and positive as ever. Secondly, and less appealing, is the amount of vibration sent through the cabin by the exhaust as the car... [Read More]

What’s this? Well, it’s a dusty, sort of cobbled-together-looking Ford Fiesta hatchback. But look more closely. See that altered front bodywork with the giant air inlets? The tacked-on fender flares? The apparent intercooler peering out from behind the grille? This, friends, is no ordinary Fiesta—it’s almost assuredly a test mule for a hot-rodded Fiesta RS that Ford could be cooking up for 2017.
Ford’s RS game is strong recently, what with the 2017 Focus RS bringing its all-wheel drive and 300-plus turbocharged horsepower to the U.S. and the rest of the world. And when Ford unveiled the slightly larger Focus RS, the company hinted that the RS nameplate would become a long-term performance-oriented sub-brand. A fire-breathing Fiesta would sure fit nicely with that notion.
Our spy’s sleuthy photos of this Fiesta test mule seem to support that assumption. Running around in a convoy that included two camouflaged Focus RS prototypes, the wee Fiesta appears to have a wide-mouthed (and likely temporary) grille echoing the big air inlets of the bigger Focus RS behind it. It has also sprouted tacked-on fender flares and some temporary rear bodywork, both of which were seen on Focus RS prototypes when they were in the early test-mule stages.
If this is indeed a Fiesta RS, we suspect from previous conversations that it will feature an uprated version of the 197-hp 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder already seen in the current Fiesta ST, perhaps tuned to make north of 230 horses. We also expect a widened track, a thoroughly reworked suspension, a limited-slip differential, and perhaps some weight savings, along with... [Read More]
