Shift Autosport and VCMC recently took up the Canadian Scion Tuner Challenge FRS Edition. I was there with them when they went to pick up there Scion FRS from OpenRoad Toyota in Richmond, BC. The team, adorned in their tuner challenge team shirts were all ecstatic to finally get their hands on the car.
We checked out the car for a few minutes and then it was off to capture some first time photos of the new rear wheel drive sports car in it’s stock form.
The VCMC Team Leader, Richard Basford(who has quite the impressive driving resume, including the 2003 Canadian Nationals C-Stock Champion, 2003 Rookie of the Year and 2011 VCMC Competitor of the Year) was very pleased with the car right off the bat, and looked like he was having the time of his life bombing around in it.
After the photos were done it was back to the garage for a team meeting, and time to dive into the first modifications of the new FRS!
