Dionne Mascunana is well known for producing great content for the automotive and aftermarket community. He got into the scene 15 years ago with a Mazda RX-8 which remained mostly stock, then went on to a three-year Honda Civic EK project car that he'll admit was a bit "ricey" at the time. He took a break from cars to satisfy an appetite for speed, riding and racing motorcycles, while also picking up videography as a hobby. His talents behind the video camera would eventually lead him into the role of media and marketing manager at Toyo Tires.
"To be honest, I love building the cars, but I don't consider myself a competitive driver. I used to race bikes at Streets of Willow and Chuckwalla. For me, the most exciting part of all this is building the car. Driving is fun, but I'm not going to pretend to be a pro driver."
Dionne Mascunana lives another dream for many of us. All the cool video media you drool over from Toyo Tires is created by him, he’s even listed on IMDb for directing and editing the 2017 video on the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. His talent goes beyond the lens as he also modifies his own cars like his Miata and even parts of this Cayman.
“A proper race car needs proper seating and securing. I have a set of Recaro P 1300 GT Seats contain both driver and passenger in the Cayman while a set of Schroth PROFi III-6 six-point belts keeps them from moving around in high-G forces. These RECARO seats also provide further head and neck protection from side loads during cornering and whips during accidents. It’s also one more part to prevent debris from contacting the driver’s head if something were to penetrate the polycarbonate window.”
Since 1906 we never stop searching for something new and are continually breaking new grounds. RECARO products are at the cutting-edge of technology.
We believe in the superior quality and masterly craftsmanship of our products and carefully select only the most precious and top-notch materials for our seats.
At RECARO, driver protection is about more than just giving you the impression you’re in safe hands. It’s our utmost priority.
