Looking through the #IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER Tumblr feed, I can’t help but be amazed at the variety of images coming through. It’s the same on Twitter and even our e-mail inbox is getting a huge variety of love on a regular basis. What makes this even better is that all of these fantastic images from around the globe are coming from you, our readers. You’re helping to create an amazing record of car culture, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. The details of how you can contribute are at the bottom of this post.
Max Müller managed to catch a couple of stages from last weekend’s WRC event in France. The hard charging Fords were again powerless to prevent Loeb earning his ninth world title. Incroyable.
Meanwhile in Thailand, a familiar man is working on another project.
Sondre Mydland contacted us from Norway with some images, including this Lotus Exige.
Scott Rankin was on hand to capture some of the action from the British Drifting Championship finale at Knockhill.
This Dakar yellow E36 caught my attention on Instagram. The car was captured by IG user @theraggededge at the recent H20 gathering in the US.
This Porsche 908/3 is certainly keeping good company.
@mazlimusa shared this beautiful Toyota TE27 with us – we thought it was only right that we share the love.
Joe Shaffer sent us in a couple of images from the Voodoo Hoodoo gathering in Kentucky. This Chevy hot rod has my affection.
V8s of a different sort and almost half a world away – Imraan Gallo sent us in these shots of two of the Masters V8 Mustangs.
@GrifBatenhorst tagged this shot of the mid-enigned Clio V6 sitting pretty.
I’m sure lots of you have enjoyed Maiham Media’s recent 962 video that Dino posted on Monday. Neil MacMillan was kind enough to share a photograph of another 962 in the wild some years ago. Where? In Japan, of course.
Asahiko Higashitsuz submitted this video to our e-mail address of a local drift event in Hokkaido, Japan. We’ll always have time for grass roots action.
Ed Lim was kind enough to share some of his photographs from a recent meeting in Xiamen, China.
They had an incredible turn-out with an eclectic mix of cars present. We need to keep a closer eye on the evolution of China’s automotive scene.
We’ll finish up this week’s round-up with a shot of a Fiat 500 somewhere in France, taken by Chris Illing. From this 500 to the exotics in China, from the Chevy hot rod to the dirt dropping S15 in Scotland, this is only a small sample of global car culture in recent times. I’m already excited for the next one …

Whats that orange car in the background on the left of the exige? Camaro? Either way it looks tough as hell!
When I and a couple of other people suggested something like this a while back during your suggestions threads I don't think we could have imagined this amount of support and also the quality of the cars being shown off. I had a lot of faith in the community when I made the argument for a "readers rides" section but this has still continued to blow me away. Hopefully soon I will be able to take advantage of my own suggestion and show off. Really amazing stuff. So thanks to Speedhunters for giving us a stage to really be a community, and more importantly thanks to the Speedhunters community for proving we are a very awesome crowd.
I like in that group photo of the event in China there's all these beautiful exotics and some nice performance rides, but just off to the far left... "Alright, who's the a-hole who brought the SMART car? Huh? NOT FUNNY DUDE"
can anyone id the silver aston looking thing poking its rear in the porsche 908 picture? it's got my curiosity piqued.
@Dan n Yah new camaro. Looks like it has one of the gt3/road racing fiberglass bodies on it.
@majik16106 YES-we are a awesome crowd!
@HSSLTYO thanks a lot man!
@R3d Baron Our Tumblr page is mostly automated, so I can't guarantee it would get picked up on. If you have something though, please be sure to e-mail it to email@example.com as it's the most reliable method of all!
@FunctionFirst OH MY GOD-its a smart! In Germany we say "trash can" ;)
@FunctionFirst It's not the only Smart car there either :-)
it is a Porsche 550 Lemans Coupe. It is the closest thing to the original since the original was destroyed in a wreck. You can see more of it at 502AC.com or follow them on Facebook. I have a bunch of pictures of it since I am there all the time
