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.  […]

By |April 26th, 2017|

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.  […]

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.

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.  […]

The Final Chapter – Formula D Title Fight 2016

By |October 21st, 2016|

The end of another year, and the beginning of another book that solidifies the pro drift series of Formula Drift. What turned out to be a total different story in the end, when the 2016 championship was going to be decided between last year’s champ Fredric Aasbo and 2 time champ Chris Forsberg, with also a possible Vaughn Gittin Jr. to take it if the cards played in his favor.

But if history has taught us anything, is that Irwindale always changes the game right in front of us, and gives us what we never expected. In the top 32, Forsberg takes it away from Faruk Kugay easily since Kugay was supposedly down on power. […]

Famoso Returns – Import Face-Off Bakersfield, Sep. 2016

By |October 5th, 2016|

With Import Drag Racing finding it’s way to the top, there is still one racing series that is 100% consistent and known to have some of the best cars racing, and competing for that time slip. That series is Import Face-Off, and with sponsored partner M&H Tires backing the series there is no reason for you or anyone out there to not check out what IFO is doing for all the racers. Bringing a place to race, show and sell. IFO has over 45 races all over the country for 2016, and with 11 more left including the 2 that are coming to Fontana, and Las Vegas in December. It is heaven to the Local Street Cred guy, or the seasonal show goer. […]
