Times Are Changing – World Time Attack Challenge 2017

By |November 6th, 2017|

My second time back at the World Time Attack Challenge held in Sydney Australia, was nothing short of amazing. As 2017 rolled out in the beginning of the year, the Time Attack events worldwide, including home base USA was already big. Knowing that cars were being built, changed, or just getting out there chasing records, it was surely a great year. Fast forward to my decision to leave for #wtac again was hard since many major events around the same date and the following weeks would take place. So the budget was only good for one event, and after evaluating the choices I jumped on the plane and headed down under to join the buzz again that makes the World Time Attack Challenge that Great.  […]

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. […]

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.  […]

Hill Climb Heros – Pikes Peak 2016 by Rommel Estrada

By |July 7th, 2016|

Pikes Peak was insanely different and fun. Being part of an event that’s been going on longer than I have been on this earth is something else. Supposedly one of the oldest races in the USA coming in second to the Indy 500. Also possibly one of the hardest places for me to shoot. Pikes Peak has been just as much a challenge for photographers, as it was for anyone attending. Unlike most race tracks I’ve been to, we are talking about a whole mountain here, and one of 53 mountains called the “Fourteeners” which at the peak of Pikes Peak is 14,115 feet.  […]

Make it last a Lifetime – Formula DRIFT Road Atlanta 2015

By |June 2nd, 2015|

There’s a time and a place for everything. So they say, but for me Drifting will and always be home for me at Road Atlanta. I say it every year and for every enthusiast if you haven’t been to Road Atlanta for Round 2 Formula Drift then you haven’t seen it all. Plus, you get to be part of the Global Time Attack Pro Championship as part of the combo. All I’m saying is save a little more, buy your tickets in advance, and get reservations at cheaptickets.com months prior and it’ll be more affordable than you think. […]

A day late but could’ve been worse – Global Time Attack Road Atlanta 2015

By |May 28th, 2015|

The feeling of knowing you’ll be late to an event kinda sucks, but knowing it is one of your favorite events of the year could’ve been a catastrophe. Luckily, as fate interferes with reality, I somehow managed to get to Day 2 of Round 1 in the Global Time Attack Pro Championship x Road Atlanta. What I had planned for this event and Formula D was totally different from what I ended up with, knowing that more teams and cars were going to make it at this event I was overly excited to see it all. I wanted to capture new cars, teams, and the shenanigans. I mean really wanted to live this one up, I even had plans to visit this dope BBQ spot my friend Kyle Lewis aka Brophoto introduced me to last year. But as all good things thought of or planned, sometimes it turns out a whole other way. […]
