2010... that was the last time I saw the JC Meynet/AQ Motorsports sponsored STi compete at Super Lap Battle. This whole time I thought the car was parted out, sold off, retired, or something in between. But lo and behold, eight years later, the car is still intact and actually received some upgrades since the... Continue Reading →
After having attended about a dozen or so time attack events here in the U.S. over the years (mainly at Buttonwillow), I realized that there's a handful of teams or shops that always show up with car(s) that are both well tuned and aesthetically pleasing. Some of these teams include Evasive Motorsports, Snail Performance, Go... Continue Reading →
Before I get into the Professional Awesome Racing Evo, I just want to give a shout out to the RS Motors Evo that competed very well this year in the Unlimited AWD class. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the car but it looked absolutely stunning in all white attire. The car definitely looked... Continue Reading →
First off, for those reading in the United States, I hope you guys had a fantastic Thanksgiving with friends and family. I myself is still full from my dinner earlier and in desperate need of a long nap, but I had these photos edited a couple days ago, so I decided I should throw them... Continue Reading →
The Super Lap Battle event has been the grand finale of the time attack season in the U.S. since its inauguration in 2004. Every year since then, Buttonwillow has played host to this fall classic that brings in some of the best time attackers from near and afar. This year was no different as 80+... Continue Reading →
I don't know if it's just me or not but the motorsport of "Time Attack" seems to be on a fast paced growth the past few years especially in North America. I've been seeing more teams and individuals competing in time attack events across both Canada and the United States with many traveling long distances... Continue Reading →
I can't believe it's almost time to ring in the new year, and I can't believe I'm sick again... which is why I have time to write this post I guess. It's my second time being bed-ridden in the past two months, so I've definitely gotta focus on taking care of my body this up-coming... Continue Reading →
Alright, so this is the last bit of photos from Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle and it's pretty much all shots from out on the track. Keep in mind, these are not my best work because some are heavily cropped due to my lack of a telephoto lens for the event, but in this... Continue Reading →
With the SLB coverage winding down to its final stretch, I just want to say that it was a pleasure covering the event again after all these years and a big shout out to the guys and girls at Global Time Attack for setting up a great event. Also, congrats to all the winners, new... Continue Reading →
Moving right along to the last portion of day one, I'm gonna keep the writing here to a minimum and get straight to the photos. However, just a heads up, this post is heavily focused on the Evasive Motorsports R35 GTR and the Go Tuning Type R. Now that you've been warned, let's get started!... Continue Reading →
Every time I set foot on Buttonwillow Raceway, it always brings back some good memories from past events. My fondest memories of Buttonwillow were the first years of Super Lap Battle as I've mentioned in the previous posts. It wasn't because the competition was better but rather the audience was on a larger, more global... Continue Reading →
About a week after SEMA every year, some of the fastest time attack cars gather at Buttonwillow Raceway in Central California to battle it out for the fastest times around configuration clockwise 13. This year was no different, and since the revamp of this site the past several months, I've been focusing a lot on... Continue Reading →

Other new record times include Unlimited FF... Continue Reading →
Here's the in-car footage of the Hankook/Revolution RX7 FD3S lapping the Tsukuba Circuit in 53.673 secs.....just a tad slower than HKS' CT230r Evolution. Enjoy. Be sure to check out the full coverage of the 2010 Rev Speed Super Lap Battle on Speed Hunters.
Here's another street car I shot during the Super Lap Battle. It's a super clean TSX/Euro R equipped with a barrage of J's Racing goodies, such as the front bumper, rear diffuser, titanium 60rs exhaust, BBK, GT spoiler, etc. I love all the authentic parts on this car and it even has the sticker to...
