NEEDED: MSA Streetcar Competitors
Ok, so here’s the deal – As some of you might know, I’m a regular at Street2Strip events at Killarney for more than a year now (aka IB6UB9 – white turbo’d Mk2 Golf).
I became curious about what exactly MSA events was about and had a ton of questions, like:
- What this “Bracket Racing” was all about?
