What turned out to be a quick visit, ended up becoming more of a catch up on some old friends I haven't seen in awhile, to making a few new ones in our World of Time Attack. This Gridlife event was the first West Coast trim from my knowledge, and I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy and capture more cars. Super Bowl (yes I know, I do watch other sports, lol) happened to be on the same day, and arriving early to capture some quality content while catching up with the drivers and their cars was straight to the point. It's been a minute since I last drove a car on track, and I still find it very pleasing seeing these people unfold and perform on track. This time it was under a different banner, but nonetheless the same concept. Attacking time in a certain way, getting the best that you can do on a given day, with your current car setup and goals. This is also the first Gridlife event I have attended or captured, and the Track Battle format is something interesting, but before I say more about it, I definitely need more field time to understand and dissect this new style of Time Attack. Hence the traditional format of Time Attack is still and will always be the foundation of the Time Attack Sport, but giving it different perspectives can enhance the Fan experience, and for many others I can understand why. Regardless, I had a great short time, and it was a good 2019 entry for more Time Attack events to follow this year. -Rommel Estrada [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Wind chills made it difficult to shoot but the rain from yesterday and fast-moving cloudy skies provided a nice backdrop for a track that's typically just clear skies and dry yellow dirt.  I'm all in for photo ops and it being my first Gridlife event, I'm excited to see their time-attack "TrackBattle Brackets" format.  Its Superbowl Sunday and I expected low attendance but its a good turnout.  A nice mix of talent of drivers, track/race cars and media.  Met up with friends and new people; putting a name to a face, car, camera or a social media @account is always fun.  The first half of the event ran like a typical track day, run groups out on track for HPDE and Qualifying.  But for the other half, that's when everything gets turned up a few notches.  Two cars are released onto an open track in a Tōuge style lead-follow battle. Green flag... gap 'em.  Blue flag, switch positions.  Green flag, close the gap and take the win at the checkered.  Live commentary and post-race interviews over the PA loudspeakers, as well as the crowd cheering, heightened the excitement.  This was a great experience, and I'm a fan of this time-attack format.  I hope we get more of this here in the West Coast.  But for now, check out these photos - Jeremy Adajar [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

RCO #002 – “Sheri” Written and Driven by Devin Giles

I’ll share a brief history on myself. I’ve constantly liked the beat up track abused look with aggressive aero. I was never one to drool over super clean builds, but that stock power planted civic with worn R888’s was always just enough to look over. Then my S2000 comes in which was supposed to be my street/auto cross car. Full interior and livable, well that last all of a month and then things like AC started coming out magically. […]
