Time Attack is where it’s at -Global Time Attack Finals Super Lap Battle 2018

By |December 4th, 2018|

Time Attack Is where it’s at -If you haven’t been or know much about Time Attack, I strongly encourage you to come through at a Global Time Attack event. Unlike other forms of racing, I still find Time Attack the closest thing to grassroots builds that were once in someone’s mind and then executed on a car to race. There is no one sided build here, or marquee, I mean you can sway that way like some. Lol. But if you like Honda’s or Chevys, LS swapped BMW’s and just much more, you’ll notice it all here. What I love most about this sport is the ingenuity of what goes on with the cars. Sure there is the common name branding and components you’ll find on most other race cars especially from other forms of Motorsports. […]

#149 Jager Racing/ Yimisport Subaru WRX STI – GTA Finals SLB 2018

By |December 1st, 2018|

DNF -Not the type of result you want, or expect to have when competing for the Top Spot. Which is what Mark Jager and his team has been chasing for quite some time. Not a newcomer to the sport of Time Attack, but recognized for his Fast Blue Subaru WRX STI tuned and built alongside with YimiSport. He’s been down this road before, attending and competing in Time Attack for a long time. Especially with Global Time Attack. Unfortunately this year it wasn’t in the cards for him, and due to an engine failure of some sort he was out before he could even grab a good lap. His quickest to date is a 01:41.309 at Buttonwillow Raceway #CW13 when he won a First in his Class at GTA Finals Super Lap Battle 2016. Welp that we couldn’t see what this Fast Subie could do with it’s latest. We’ll have to wait till 2019 for what’s to come. #motolyric 

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

By |December 1st, 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

By |December 1st, 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

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

By |November 25th, 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
