Racewars 2018- Top Speed Racing Done the Australian Way!

by Blake Parry

Nestled in the Western Australian town of Albany, lies a runway – normally used for a quick transit to avoid the 5 hour drive from capital city Perth, or for handful of crop dusters and the local flying doctor service. Once a year, with the support of the local government and townsfolk, this airport is shut down, and transformed into what is now Australia’s only 1000m (3280ft) V-max event. This is Racewars.

Originally conceived by a group of WA locals over maybe one too many beers, Racewars is now in its 5th year, showing that a dedicated bunch of people, supported by a strong car community can achieve great things. Welcoming all comers – irrespective of vehicle type as long as it’s fast, to put man and machine to the test over 1000m of prime tarmac.

Curly's Corner: A Nerd's Eye on Formula 1 - Australian Grand Prix

by David Zipf

It’s been five months since we got to talk Formula 1...and quite frankly, that’s five months too long. With Easter nearly on us, it’s finally time to polish up those new paint jobs, warm up the 1.6L hybrid V6s, and get racing once again. Formula 1 is back!

GridLife IceBattle 2018

by Connor Harrison

Are you slowly going insane from sitting in your garage staring at your car? Wishing for warmer weather so you can actually go out and do car stuff with your car friends? Just go ice racing instead; it's essentially an autocross on a frozen lake and is a nice way to keep your sanity while shredding fresh powder with your buds. Just like an autocross, these events happen all over the place, and odds are good that a local club near you is doing something pretty similar. I decided to take a break from my thoroughly half-assed attempts at getting my Sentra off of jack stands for the first time in two years to go see what GridLife IceBattle was all about.

LA Auto Show 2017: Nerd’s Eye View – Unique Cars, Engines, and Things

by Khiem Dinh

The LA Auto Show always has some unique new vehicles that budding automotive companies want to show off. For example, this new Saleen mid-engine and turbocharged car. It’s got the right recipe in my mind for an awesome performance car platform. It’s good to see Saleen back out making products. The big OEMs sometimes like to show off a little flair too along with new technologies. Then there are the other random going-on stuff at the show which I find amusing.

Nerd’s Eye View: LA Auto Show – Go-Fast Vehicles

by Khiem Dinh

The motorsport scene has undergone large technical changes over the last half decade with the implementation of high-efficiency technologies. Some of the technology has shown up in concept cars. Some of the technology in road going cars have been eliminated from the race car version. Then there’s just good ole big displacement with forced induction on top. There was even a bit for the off-road guys.

LA Auto Show 2017: Nerd’s Eye View – BMW

by Khiem Dinh

So, what was going on in the BMW booth? A lot of electric stuff. A lot of ‘M’ stuff. A lot of carbon fiber. It seems you can get a M Performance version of just about any model BMW now- much like how you can get an AMG Mercedes everything. What do you get for the extra Benjamins dished out for the M Performance packages? Fancy carbon fiber exhaust temps with the M logo etched into the tips for one.

Nerd’s Eye View: The Cars of PRI

by David Zipf

PRI is full of cool and new speed parts, which the rest of the MotoIQ team is showing you.  But for a PRI newcomer, it’s the cars that really overwhelm you.  They are everywhere!  And, they are all amazing and varied, everything from rally demo cars to Drag Week veterans, to dirt track cars, to original Indy 500 winning racers.  We could fill a novel with the cars we saw, and in fact after walking the PRI floor for an entire day, I STILL hadn’t seen everything there was to see!  Note to self: plan for more vacation in 2018…

LA Auto Show 2017: Nerd’s Eye View – Porsche

by Khiem Dinh

I was short on time this year at the LA Auto Show, so I had to do a bit of a blitzkrieg. The one booth I have to visit every year is Porsche because the cars are simply awesome. In addition to the GT2RS, Porsche was highlighting the Cayman and Boxster GTS siblings, 911 Carrera T, and a few 4-door sedans. I got sucked into the GT2RS and almost completely ignored all the other cars.

$20,000 at Stake: The Speed Ring by Motovicity!

by Frank Ewald

Photos by Motovicity and M1 Concourse

The Speed Ring by Motovicity is the richest Time Attack event held in North America. The fastest time of the weekend headed home from The Speed Ring with $20 000.00 cash in their brand new briefcase. Plus the ultimate bragging rights as the fastest Time Attack car in North America - backed up by a big, shiny, and hugely coveted 'Ultimate Badass' trophy. This is the second year that Motovicity has held The Speed Ring and it is, without a doubt, a not to be missed event.

2017's Speed Ring took place in the mid-west at Michigan's new M1 Concourse. It was a two day event with Saturday being a standard time attack event while Sunday was a crowd pleasing, Touge-style bracket race with the best two out of three laps coming out on top as the winner. Motovicity teamed up with GridLife to build the event which is just two years old. This is a quick overview of The Speed Ring with a focus upon the cars that ran in the Touge Bracket Racing. Did you miss The Speed Ring this year? Plan for it next year. And if you are overseas, start looking into booking your shipping container now so that you will be ready. The North American's are ready for you!

People’s Choice Car Show and Parade of Garages

by Pablo Mazlumian

During this time of the year, every week in the Kansas City area you'll find multiple car shows or meets to feast your eyes on. I went to this one not expecting to see much, but a few minutes into I had to grab some shots to show our readers. Check out this tremendous mix of cars, ranging from current and old-school muscle, to exotics and hot rods, to Jeeps with machine guns, and a garage parade! Enjoy flipping through the cars and garages of the Carriage Houses of Johnson County and KC Automotive Museum. If you make it to the last page, tell us what you think of our new styling updates on one of our Midwest garages!

Event Coverage: Red Bull Global Rallycross Indianapolis

by David Zipf

MotoIQ and Global Rallycross go quite a way back. In fact, all the way back in 2009 Dave Coleman gave us a peek at the Olsebergs Fiesta engines and just a couple years ago our chief nerd was in the pits at the Long Beach GRC race and brought us An Inside Look at mountune's GRC Ford Duratec Engine. GRC is much like the circus: they pop-up in town, put on a show, and leave without a trace. Well, if you don’t count a bunch of skid marks as a trace. GRC has hosted a ton of new events in the Midwest this year including in Louisville, Memphis, and Indianapolis. I'm in Kentucky so attending the Louisville race would have made much more sense for me, but I was a bit preoccupied that weekend covering the IndyCar Grand Prix. So to get my rallying fix, I took the drive north to Indianapolis.

Motor Massive, Global Time Attack, 86 Fest: Everything You'll Want In One Place

by David Kim

Toss in a little Global Time Attack into the mixing bowl, add a little 86Fest into the mix, include a touch of Auto Club Speedway, then sprinkle in everything motorsport to make yourself a delicious treat of Motor Massive. Enjoy on a beautiful, but very hot, Sunday afternoon- the collaborative affair between GTA and 86Fest brought one massive automotive event to Southern California, and yes, I was probably a little hungry at the time of writing this, but this event catered to literally all forms of automotive interests. Want a slice of high performance Time Attack? Sure, it’s only a few steps this way.

#LeMansDay at the Petersen Automotive Museum

by Khiem Dinh

The Petersen Automotive Museum has started a tradition of holding a 24 Heures du Mans (that’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in English) watch party. This year, a little competition on Forza was also held to be entered into a raffle to win a set of tires from Michelin. But really, the Petersen Automotive Museum has a stunning array of vehicles showing both history and modern technology, so anyone should visit the museum regardless.
