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.

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!

Improving Dai Yoshihara's Formula Drift Engine Wear With WPC Treatment!

by Mike Kojima

The world of Pro Drifting is a brutal place for machinery. Since I started my involvement with Pro Drifting 10 years ago, I have been amazed by the appetite for parts a pro car possesses. In all of my engineering career, I have yet to be involved with a motorsport that eats more expensive stuff on a regular basis.

Dai Yoshihara's 2018 Formula Drift Rebuild

by Mike Kojima

After 3 years of Formula Drift competition, our team had pretty much developed the BRZ chassis to where we were satisfied with its performance. After some post-season testing to try out a few new ideas we decided that with the development stable, it was time to completely go through the car, repair some minor damage incurred during three seasons of hard use and to rethink the car's layout.

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.

PRI 2017 - What's New and Cool Edition

by Erik Jacobs

It’s been almost two weeks since the 2017 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show finished its last day, and this coverage is just now coming out. This should serve as a testament to just how much is at this truly racing-oriented trade show. Unlike the party time vibe that the SEMA show fosters, PRI is all about serious racing business. Sure, there’s a few models here and there, but, for the most part, the wares are the star of the show. Here are a number of things that the MotoIQ staff found interesting this year.

The Spoon Center Drive Civic: 2017 Changes

by Mike Kojima

2016 was a pretty disappointing Super Lap Battle for Spoon USA.  In the rush after the Formula D season to upgrade the cage, repair the broken transmission and switch to a center seat driving position, the car was not fully ready for the 2016 Super Lap Battle and it showed with a slower lap time than it's winning 2015 speed. A little time was needed to finish the car off and that was not happening due to the end of the FD season, SEMA and everyone's time commitments.

480WHP Honeywell Garrett Powered F20C: Devin Giles' Time Attack S2000

by Khiem Dinh

It all starts the same way. “I want to go auto-crossing!” you say. So, you start browsing the interwebs and research the S2000. You start auto-crossing and start modding and moving through the classes. Then, you do a track day. Then, you mod the car some more. Then, you do time attack. Then, you end up with a highly built race car like Devin Giles- owner and driver of this fast S2000. It’s a familiar path; there’s probably a support group for it out there.
