#555 Snail Performance / IAG Performance Subaru WRX -GTA Finals SLB 2018

#555 The Record Breaking Subaru WRX Driven, and owned by Markos Mylonas of Snail Performance / IAG Performance. It’s been quite a season seeing different cars, but still remembering certain ones that has made an impact in front your camera. This car and the driver is one of them, as it continues to set and reset records. In Time Attack, trying to be at different parts of the track will always be challenging because once the track goes hot on a session these cars may do one lap, or a few, and if I’m lucky they’ll be out for more. This years GTA FINALS, I found Markos out more then I thought he would, and it’s his car that I have a personal memorandum in my head because he puts on a fast show. Not knowing if he broke another record, and sometimes instead of capturing his car in action, I take in the moment to see his quest. Lol Although he didn’t break his own record this time, he still grabbed 2nd in Street AWD with a 01:49.563. I guess we’ll have to wait till next year to see what’s next Markos. Will he stay in the Street Class, or will he go to Limited? Unlimited? #motolyric

#310 Novak Racing Honda Civic EK9 – GTA Finals SLB 2018

K Powered and built with class. Everything I see in Novak Racing’s Honda Civic is truly tasteful. From the obvious clean color choice, and RAYS Wheel TE37’s the more you take your time to check out this piece of art. At first glance, you comb the engine bay, passing by the JRZ Suspension, and Kraftwerks Supercharger System. Then you start to take notice of the body panels, stitch welds throughout the chassis, and the similar hardware you’d find on a Top Level IMSA Race Car. But you also notice, the simplicity of the parts chosen. Still no crazy livery, no insane aero or over exaggerated body fixtures. It’s got one Recaro Seat, in a intricate Roll Cage system, acrylic front side windows, and just a lot of awe. Lol. Nevertheless it was nice to capture it on track, driven by Pro Driver Alex Peng of Momofoolio Racing, this car popped it’s cherry at the Global Time Attack Finals SLB with a 1st Place Win in FWD Unlimited taking down the Buttonwillow Raceway Park#CW13 with a 01:51.435 Lap Time.. #motolyric

#60 Imperious Rex Racing Honda S2000 – GTA Finals SLB 2018

12th place Street RWD -01:56.501 Ted Park #60 Honda S2000
ImperiousRex Racing / CounterSpace Garage.
S2000 Takeover -Now before we get shots fired at us, like what we posted on IG, hear me out. Lol. This time around at the Global Time Attack Finals 2018. We counted over 14 Honda S2000’s, and possibly more that was just there from the spectator crowd. Now in 2017 we had over 12 Mazda Miata’s competing and an X amount of S2000’s. That’s what I meant! Nothing against Miata’s and for the fact that 2 Miata’s Won 2 of their classes out beating the S2000 crowd, means I might have to come out of retirement. Jk. Lol. As a previous S2000 owner I just happen to have a shitload of Honda S2000 friends as far back as 2002, and granted till now, a lot of them still compete! But without getting out of line here, I gotta say one thing about Ted’s AP2, this thing is straight gorgeous, and I’m not being bias, if you take your time to inspect this car and the details, you’d be hard pressed to see what I’m talking about. From the Real Voltex Kit to the Volk CE28’s, there’s just a good combination of Quality Functional Components on this car that make me want another one so bad. #motolyric 

#96 Can Jam Motorsports Subaru WRX STI – GTA Finals SLB 2018

1st Place Unlimited AWD – 01:38.281 Richard Boake Racing #96 Subaru WRX STI Can Jam Motorsports The New AWD Record Holder -It’s always interesting seeing a New Race Car, and Team I haven’t seen in person. Although I’ve heard of the car and it’s driver through the Motorsports Channels, but to see it in person and witness history in the making is another story.

The Global Time Attack Finals Super Lap Battle every year has shown me different winners, and different cars. Notably always after the famed SEMA, the GTA Finals aligns well with it. Through the years we’ve seen cars from other countries and other parts of the US come to Race. This year Can Jam came out to chase the record, and to beat it. After an engine replacement over night, and several attempts they didn’t get the Overall Track Record they wanted so badly, but they did get the AWD Record. Will we see more of this Race Car in 2019? I hope so.. #motolyric

Congratulations on another podium finish to add to your list, especially this one at Global Time Attack Finals Super Lap Battle 2018. It’s always great seeing you at any event. See you in 2019! #motolyric 

End of Summer -Global Time Attack Pro-Am RD3 Buttonwillow 2018

After a few months, we returned to our favorite Race Track Buttonwillow Raceway with Global Time Attack for Round 3 of the Pro-Am Series.

Teaming up again with Speed District, we were able to check out the latest Time Attack Cars in all categories, and some new blood of those that have either came back after a long hiatus sporting the new to me stuff, or fresh into Time Attack type cars.  […]
