MotoIQ's Project Scion TC Wins in Speed World Challenge!

MotoIQ Staff Report

Our Project Scion TC, fresh from its victory at the NASA PTC National Championships continued its winning streak by dominating in its inaugural outing in Speed World Challenge's new Touring Car 2 class last weekend October 9-11 at Mazda Speedway (Laguna Seca) in Monterey California, the seasons finale.

Veteran racer Scott Webb, took the win during the 50-minute Touring Car race.  The TRD supercharged and intercooled Scion tC put on a great show for tens of thousands of fans, as he not only won the class, but actually mixed it up with the faster class TC cars. For Laguna Seca, team manager and two-time NASA national champion driver, Dan Gardner, had decided that Webb’s experience at the track made him the best fit to pedal the car.

This past Sunday, our own Project Scion tC campaigned by the JD Scion Road Racing team put another mark in the history books, winning a second consecutive national championship in NASA’s Performance Touring series. Perhaps most impressive was the fact that the team started in dead last and managed to climb back through the field and win the race.


 

Project Scion TC Part Two, Chassis and Cage Construction Details

By Mike Kojima

In our last segment of Project Scion TC Racer we had brought our car to Technosquare in Torrance California for the construction of a custom roll cage leaving the car in the capable hands of master fabricator Richie Watanabe.  It’s no secret that many of MotoIQ’s project cars and staffers personal cars end up spending a stint at Technosquare sooner or later. Richie has many years of experience constructing Pro Rally and race cars, and is quietly proud of the fact that every racer that has ever crashed while driving a car equipped with one of his cages has walked away unharmed.  The last Technosquare cage to be tested in such a spectacular manor is Taka Ono’s AE86 who flipped at a Formula D event at Irwindale raceway last year.

Project Scion TC Racer: Part One

So when Scion was launched as the brand of Generation Y, after looking at the cars specs, I sighed a yawn seeing that they were probably designed for cool kids and those who emulate them that were more into clothes, hair product and music than cars or at least the performance part of it. I immediately dismissed the brand as something I was not interested in and never paid attention to it again.
