HSD SPONSORED DRIVERS
When you hear the name Pat Cyr, the first thought that comes to mind is him flying sideways in his AE86 Corolla. When Scion Canada decided to get its new FR-S involved in the DMCC series, it was only fitting to have a Toyota supporter like Pat on board as their driver.Fast forward and after months of hard work and late nights at his newly-opened shop, Cyrious Garageworks, Cyr’s FR-S started to take shape.
Trying to make his FR-S look different from the flood of other ones coming out, Cyr designed and fabricated a custom rear spoiler and front splitter he dubbed the ‘Meat Slicer.’ Paired with huge ML24 wide body flares and a matte paint job, it gives it a mean look that fits his style. The car is slammed using three-way HSD adjustable coil-overs and rides on Work Meister 17x9.5 wheels and Yokohama S.drive tires to get as much speed as possible.It is a DMCC car so the interior is all race car. The Cyrious Garageworks custom roll cage and stitch-welded chassis is all business, while Sparco takes care of the man with his steering wheel, seat and harness. AEM gauges help monitor the vitals.
