Mark, along with his co-driver Miles Markovic, took Mark’s 1971 GMC farm truck (much modified since his dad bought it for him at age 14, for $100) to Newfoundland, raced for five segments in one of the most difficult endurance races in North America, astounded the locals and the other racers who could not believe that a truck could be successful in such a gruelling event. Successful they were, taking home Rookie of the Year and a second place in the Classic category.
As is usual with those dreamers who do not do things the easy way, Mark began to scheme for what’s next, what would be that challenge? Well, the new goal is Pikes Peak, to race there and survive would require an unusual amount of modifications. So the work began. In the P.I. booth you will see the amazing changes that are being made to what was once a farm truck.
Our booth will be displaying a number of unique products built from Canada’s own Vibrant Performance parts. Items such as a complete Intercooler/Heat exchanger setup by Proper Fabrications, a set of Baja 1000 headers built by Iik Design and Fabrication, and a Schmuck Built Turbo manifold. They will also have on display the world’s most expensive Muskoka Chair, built entirely from Vibrant Titanium pieces, It’s amazing!
