Budget Bond P1800 Lucky Number 7 Just Sleeper Tuner Things

Arūnas Rimkus acquired his taste for open tarmac and scenic road trips thanks to Test Drive Unlimited and his car-enabling brother. Currently piloting a Volvo V40, he dreams of conquering European roads like the Transfăgărășan in something a little more… focused. When he’s not studying and working in the energy field as a software developer, Arūnas creates some of your favourite soft things to wear like "Budget Bond", "Lucky Number 7", and "Unusual Suspects".

Arūnas exercised his keyboard to answer a few questions:

Daytona 2017

Waiting in for alternate-side-of-the-street parking in the city got kinda boring and cold, so we decided to road trip to Florida for the 24h of Daytona endurance race... and found more cold rainy weather. Plus, speedy cars!

Bank of Daytona

The day started with some hot laps from the handsome folks at the BMW Performance Center. The M3s are more than capable for this track... you can bank on that.

Chris Holewski Artist

Chris Holewski can say it and spray it thanks to careers as both an Art Director and stencil artist; whether he’s creating branding for clients ranging from offroad magazines to pharmaceutical companies, or spraying down his varied project vehicles in addition to his automotive stencil designs. It's these hand-painted works that have formed the basis for classic tees like "2-Thousand-Ooh", "Landy", and "DTM3".
