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.  […]

Before we head out to our favorite event of the year, which is Global Time Attack x Formula D Road Atlanta in the next few weeks. We just finalized the first Motolyric New Era Hat, that will be available for a limited time, and in our store starting “May 1st”. So make sure to cop one before you head out to Road Atlanta, or before they are all gone. 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. […]

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. […]

Live it up – Global Time Attack PRO AM RD-1 2016

By |April 5th, 2016|

Buttonwillow Pride – Well, actually it’s more like Global Time Attack takes over. Finally, after a season break, we get our first taste for the year, of true time attack in the states. GTA makes it even better for 2016. Alongside with Speed District again, the event was packed with Mild Cars to Full-Out purpose machines. Truly an event that I always encourage others to come or drive with the series. With more events added in 2016 including some new collaborations, it’s going to be one hell of a year. […]

GTA x SLB 2015 – The Gateway Drug to Breaking Records

By |November 20th, 2015|

Not for the fame, but for that time. The one set of numbers that Time Attack Drivers have been working on all year, or for some their whole lives. Either it be an addiction or straight lunacy, Time Attack continues to be a Hot thing right now. I mean, who can blame people for not loving these cars, from the technical things on what works and doesn’t to the beautiful aesthetics of the aero. It’s all eye candy, and every year in our industry, there are always new cars, and new products. While some go with these changes, there are those who practice and rack up seat time rather than change anything. […]
