What is Zorce?

Zorce is an independent Trinidad-based Caribbean Magazine that showcases Car Culture and Motorsport, a.k.a. Speed Lifestyle. We highlight new and traditional facets, ideas and arenas, in which this lifestyle can be fulfilled, enjoyed and appreciated.
Were did we get the name? Trinidad slang. It's been in our local vernacular for decades, being used to describe (and exclaim) that something was fast, powerful and that it looked good or felt good. Hmmm... now what are you thinking?
Typical usage: "That car has real ZORCE in it!", "I was legit Zorcing on the autobahn".
The other debate regarding the Zorce name had to do with its spelling, many permutations entered the discussion. We decided on "ZORCE" because of its conceptual similarity to "Force" which perhaps is THE word that really conveys the idea in many senses (Physics, Star Wars etc). Upon our introduction to the Market shortly after Trinidad Carnival 2001, we seemingly acquired a few namesakes. As a concept, ZORCE encompasses excitement, performance, speed and power, the attitude or the racer, the enthusiast, the spectator and anyone who feels the rush.
We are ZORCE, the premier digital and printed car magazine in the Caribbean region, a.k.a. 'De Racing Mag in De Islands...'
