The first thing that springs to mind when you say Subaru BRZ and/or Toyota 86, is not drag racing. Circuit racing yes, Drift yes, AutoX yes… certainly not straight line activity.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
