FWD Take Over -Global Time Attack Road Atlanta 2017

By |May 31st, 2017|

For the first time at a Global Time Attack event a fwd not only breaks the long standing record, but tops it off by clenching the fastest overall time. Every year at Road Atlanta it seems to change between who to look out for or what to expect. No matter how many times I’ve tried, my predictions never match the results. With my mind set at the usual Unlimited AWD class taking the best time of the day, I search the list for the players. Seeing Brian Faessler return with his Paul’s Automotive Engineering Ford Mustang and the only Pro/Comp entrant, he was extremely fast last year but just got edged out by last year’s winner Jeff Westhphal driving the hard to beat GST Motorsports Subaru Impreza and LYFE Motorsports Nissan GTR driven by Cole Powelson. So off the bat, I figured if it wasn’t going to be Rick MacPherson with his DBW Motorsports GTR or Tony Szirka and his UMS Tuning EVO, or  just maybe one of the Canadians with their oh so powerful Honda’s might do it. But if I placed a bet as if it where a Vegas sports book I would have lost for sure.  […]

But in the next few weeks, we’ll be following up with the cars and drivers through social media on their progress and journey to GTA Road Atlanta.  […]

Boost Festival 2017 – Streets of Willow

By |March 8th, 2017|

The start of the season for us was kicked off with the much anticipated Boost Festival by Honeywell Garrett. Partnering with Global Time Attack, Just Drift and Drift 101. Held at the Streets of Willow, in Rosamond, California the pits filled in with the usual variety of all makes and models. From the Subies of Snail Performance to some never seen exotics coming out of the wood work. The Time Attack portion filled the day with some fast laps and records. […]

Just Time Attack – Global Time Attack x Super Lap Battle 2016

By |November 30th, 2016|

What a perfect way to end a season. Although there are several other track events and days still left before the actual year ends. Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle is the finale for me. Through all the years from a spectator, to a visitor, then a photographer, and pretty soon a competitor. The Super Lap Battle 2-day event is the icing on the cake for a lot of drivers and teams. Including myself, and I can go on and on, on how great this event is. But I don’t want to bore you with that. Lol. Coming from all over the USA, including Canada, and sometimes from other countries, it is the Time Attack Championship Finals, this is Super Lap Battle!  […]

The beat goes on – IDRC Finals 2016

By |November 16th, 2016|

In the world of Motorsports, drag racing still beats hard on a lot of gear heads across the globe. While some still believe that it takes no skill to pilot a car down a straight line, haven’t experienced it long enough to get to a level some can only dream about. But here at Motolyric, it don’t matter, and some of you can relate, that we all know that any racing is good for us. Although I haven’t Drag Raced a car since the local LACR closed down in 2007, I’m still a fan and follower since the Battle of the Import days, and I can say I will never get tired of it. I still enjoy that quick thrill watching 2 cars go at it from a dead stop. There is truly nothing like it in the world.  […]

Time Attack Down Under – World Time Attack Challenge 2016

By |November 4th, 2016|

If you’re reading this, you’re probably at SEMA or WCF and I was suppose to go to both of those. But without getting you lost in other stories, I stayed behind to finish this feature, and gallery before the big Global Time Attack x Super Lap Battle coming on November 10-11th. As a huge enthusiast and supporter of Time Attack, I have always wanted to go to the “World Time Attack Challenge” in Australia. For years watching and reading up on the stories, the cars, drivers and the experience magnified me to make it happen. Well, I finally did it in 2016, and it was a tough decision since I also wanted to do those other events I mentioned, and some major ones, like the Formula 1 USGP Race, or the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2017. But being on a budget and trying to do some of these events can be hard, and since Time Attack has taken my heart for the longest, I knew I had to go to WTAC at least once. First and foremost the Australian people along with the New Zealanders I met and made friends with during this trip are some of the coolest people I have ever met. Truly friendly and talked about cars and racing during breaks was never ending.  […]
