off topic a bit.

I heard many years a go some fool brought a Porsche to the King of the hill in Barrie and crashed and wrecked the car?

Any truth to this?

I don't know about a Porsche, but a young man totalled his Acura last year. I was away from Barrie for a few years following the CVM, and one year I spent much of the season at Sunset.

I also heard the one about a guy who stole a car in the London area and took it to KOTH at Delaware and raced it. Some fans in the stands told me that one last year when I was there.

As a sideline to that, my family used to own a 1968 Mustang coupe that we sold to someone. It was used as the pace car at Barrie for a while, and while I can't confirm it (I wasn't there when it happened), I heard it ended up in the wall one night and they had to find a new pace car.

A few years back a kid showed up with Daddy's Volvo & plowed it into the wall. The kid in one race came so close to hitting the wall that of course Glen Archer made him race again. Sure enough he smoked the wall then drove right off the track. Someone said the father went to Centennial that week & tried to get Gord Coates to pay for it. I think he was unsuccessful.

The first King of the Hill I participated in was 3 years ago.  Davenport Subaru wanted to showcase some Subaru's at the event, since they were sponsoring the evening.  Well, it was an eye opening experience for me, having never done this sort of thing before, and I watched as 2 RX7's take each other out during one of the runs, a young guy deflecting the front of a Buick (I think) on turn 4.

3 Weeks ago during a persuit race between a Subaru STI and Myself, he tagged the inside wall on the exit of Turn 4 and crunched a fender, headlight, and front mount intercooler.  All in all, the incidents are few and far between, and it's certainly nice to see the appreciation of the crowds.

With regards to Delaware, there's a video on Youtube that shows the stolen car going around the track.  If you search for "King of the Wall" it's not hard to find.

I'll be there this Saturday with a few of my friends, playing with the KOTH regulars.

Hope to see some of you there, and if you see a goldish family sedan with a baby seat in it, with stickers that show Toyo Tires, that's me.  Don't be shocked by all the grey hair.. LOL

Not worried about Shawn, the 240Z that's coming out has about 400 - 500 HP on it, and it barely breaks 2400 Lbs.  Shawn would have to have 800 HP on that 3800 Lb Camaro.

Besides, the 2wd's are doing the deed against each other, and the AWD's same thing.  Regardless who wins, it's all about the show and all for the fans.  For us, it's just plain fun.

I thought the red Honda? was going to hit the wall at the last turn.

They are cool races. I heard about the guy that had the stolen car. Did they arrest him at the track?  I guess if your going to wreck a car make sure it's not your own.

I was hoping someone confirm the one about the guy bring daddys Porsche and wrecked it and cried like a baby as his dad didn't know what he was doing with the car.

The guy the crunched up the stolen car at Delaware, left the car there and walked away, basically disappearing after the event.  Don't know if he was ever caught.  Now, Delaware checks the ownerships of the cars and drivers licenses to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Since we're posting up videos, here's the KOTH from the Davenport event last year, the sponsor of the event (Mike Davenport) was driving the red car, and he asked to get ahead on the launch, so that's what he got.  He's currently heading up to Targa Newfoundland to race in Targa in a modified Subaru SVX.  Now if you are looking for a sponsor of the site, I can be persuaded to do live introductions.  ;D
