Exterior Insulation Finish Systems have the ability to make your home beautiful, reduce outside noise, and use less fossil fuels. Racing and Indies on the other hand seem to be the antithesis - in your face, targeted to a somewhat questionable audience and loud with a goal of using as much fuel and rubber as required to beat out the competition. The two are not something you would expect to see joined together.
Imagine my surprise then on Sunday while enjoying an ice cold beer (or three) and working on my redneck (I do have one now thanks to brilliant sun) when I see two cars shoot by with Durabond plastered along the sides. I posted last year about Durabond participating in the CTCC but wasn’t aware they would be at the Toronto Honda Indy 2011 until they went screaming by, close behind the leaders. While the event goes against nearly everything the EIFS industry stands for, I guess the millions of barrels of oil Durabond‘s systems have/will save by making buildings more energy efficient more than make up for their participation.
I’d post up the pictures, but they’re not much more than a blur.
More coverage on the event can be found at the Canadian Touring Car article.
