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.  […]

RCO #005 – The GTR without a fact sheet

By |October 7th, 2016|

Blame it on me, or the race track for losing my fact sheet and notes I had when I shot this car at Road Atlanta during the Global Time Attack PRO Championship RD 1. So I’m just going to use my good ol trusty instinct from what I see visually to describe this awesome GTR you see before you from DBW Motorsports. […]

The Southern Drift at Road Atlanta – Formula D 2016

By |May 30th, 2016|

Nothing can ever replace the great memories I have with this round every year. Formula D at Road Atlanta is the best, and I know I always say that every year, but it’s the damn truth. In conjunction with Global Time Attack on the same days, it’s almost a perfect combination of Motorsports. With a interesting battle among the best in the World, Vaughn Gittin Jr. worked his way with what some may say a perfect drift to the finals. After taking out Tyler McQuarrie, Dai Yoshihara and Chris Forsberg he clenched a 1st place podium on this round making him a possible champ for the season.   […]

RCO #004 – “Time Attack Formula” Mark Jager’s always evolving Subaru STI

By |May 19th, 2016|

In 2016 the Time Attack world continues to grow. With cars being built by not just one person anymore, but by a group of like-minded people that have the same passion and goal. With shops, tuners, and Industry companies involving themselves with these cars, the recognition is becoming apparent.

Not to long ago, a enthusiast from the desert of California got hooked on a track day, and just went from zero to more. Mark Jager not only had a passion for cars, but a willingness to succeed to a racing career. Having already purchased a Subaru STI, he was doing some drag racing at the now defunct LACR, but found more. Staying active with his local track, Willow Springs International Raceway. He started to gain more interest in Time Attack and progress within the ranks. […]

The Road in Atlanta – Global Time Attack PRO Championship RD-1 2016

By |May 17th, 2016|

Well the one and only ROAD ATLANTA. The famed track that’s been talked about every year, not just because of the cars, the track, or the people. But about the experience, if I could have one person come as a spectator, one a vendor, another one a competitor, and so forth. Every single one of them can write up a great story on their own and what they felt about this event. Never a duplicate and always a joy when I come off the plane, and get my rental to start my adventure. […]
