My name is Joel and I am the creator of 282 Touge Crew. I own a 1994 3.4l Chevy Camaro RS, and a 2001 Chevy Cavalier Z24. Currently I am sponsored by GoPro and Slick Products. My partner Kyle and I are running this crew as just a local enthusiast team for Touge. We have about 130 members, and about 20 in our close crew actually helping in the pursuit of our dream and wanting to be apart of it. Many people around our area know of us, over quite a distance too. We have even reached as far as another country already. We like the idea of friends getting together and sharing passion for the sport. Now Touge actually refers to Mountain Pass racing. Here in Pennsylvania, we don't exactly have that. So we go out between 1-3am on weekdays, some weekends, and practice on tight winding back roads. We go out at such times to avoid any traffic and other drivers. This summer we will be attending SCCA events to get into a more professional environment.
282 Touge has a bigger dream though. We want to take this off the streets. Everyone knows that everyone street races. Its a fact of life. You have drifting, formula racing, rally, auto cross, but nothing really gives the same feel as an actual road.
282 Touge wants to make this the new big sport. Closed courses, built courses, tight winding roads with either an incline, a decline, or level with frequently changing elevations.
Its a cat and mouse race, no stopping until there is a clear cut winner. Either the mouse loses the cat, or the cat takes over (passes) the mouse. If it stays even, then they switch positions and try again. If its still even, then it becomes an endurance race where they keep going until one eventually falls behind, constantly switching. No pit crews, no breaks, full concentration that will hold you at the edge of your seat every second whether you are the driver or the spectator.
Think about it, everyone watches nascar, formula 1, drifting, but hardly ever road racing time trials. And why? Because there is more than a car and driver against the clock. There are multiple cars, multiple drivers, neck and neck in a tight race. Its exciting, not just ticking seconds.
Now our sport can actually be easily achieved. Take the tight and narrow time trial courses, and add that extra element. The second car and driver, with a chance to become an endurance race for both as well. This will be the new exciting sport that everyone wants to get into, that everyone wants to watch. Quite a few are already highly into it!
That's our dream, to become Americas first recognized Touge crew. Pioneers of a new and exciting sport! We just need a little help getting there! So help us, and we will definitely help you! Be a part of a legendary addition to the auto sports industry here in the United States!
I take technique over power, driver and car, not just upgrades on the car.
