The Atlanta metro area is quite a big place. But, despite its size, most residents wouldn't know where Ball Ground, Georgia is. To anyone wanting to get down the drag strip with 4,000+ horsepower, however, this exurb 50 miles outside of the city is special, because that is where Pro Line Racing calls home.

We are starting a new feature at MotoIQ called "The Alley". The Alley is our ultimate photo location area, which also happens to be the alley behind the palatial and luxurious MotoIQ Megashop. With its mix of legit urban backdrops, great lighting and convenient location, it's perfect for our lazy ass photographers! The Alley moniker will be used when we feature street builds that we would be proud to drive ourselves.
When I first saw John Lazorack's 1988 Conquest TSi at the Japanese Classic Car show, I immediately did a double take and backtracked to get a closer look. You see I have always had a soft spot in my heart for these cars after having wanted one really badly when I was a young man. Well not a Conquest but but its badge engineered sibling, the Mitsubishi Starion ESi-R.

Overnight William Au-Yeung burst onto the Global Time Attack stage at Road Atlanta. Not only did he place first, but he broke the track record for Limited Front Wheel Drive in the process. And now he is back in the United States, this time at Buttonwillow for Global Time Attacks’ Superlap Battle. Ready to duplicate his overnight success on the east coast by doing the same thing out west.

A pass to SEMA is akin to an invite to the Playboy Mansion for most nerdy teenage boys. But just like any 14 year old geek, once there, they have no clue how to navigate. The grotto first, the game room, the Aviara- where to start? Luckily it gets much easier after some experience but there's still so much to see that leaves a lot that gets missed. Come along as we find the Rocket Bunnies among other things.

Once a year, Toyota located in Torrance, CA hosts an employee car show titled Octoberbeast. This year’s event was the 22nd running displaying an eclectic mix of vehicles. Don’t think just because it is a Toyota employee show that only Toyota vehicles are on display; the mix is far from it.

The 2014 Global Rally Cross season wraps up for the 3rd consecutive year in Las Vegas, but at the Linq Hotel and Casino for the first time. The Strip's reputation for being flashy and over-the-top could only be upstaged by one of the most exciting finales in Red Bull GRC history. Four drivers were vying for the top of the podium in the Supercar title- Joni Wiman, Ken Block, Nelson Piquet Jr., and Scott Speed.

How do we become better at driving? Practice makes perfect, right? Well not necessarily. Without feedback and direction, additional practice won’t always improve your ability and can possibly lead to the development of bad habits. So in reality, perfect practice makes perfect. In Part 2 of the Driver Development series, we discuss how drivers learn to improve their craft through various methods from coaching to data analysis to simulators which all aid in the advancement of the skill of driving.

The Ferrari 458 Italia, what needs to be said that isn’t already blatantly obvious? It is an amazing machine and you can tell just by looking at it. It is a Ferrari after all, but there’s much more to it than just being a fast looking car.

Those crazy blokes from England have a knack for making ‘streetable’ track cars. Caterhams, Ariel Atoms, and Radicals come to mind. Sure, they really really stretch the definition of streetable, but they can be equipped with head lights, brake lights, turn signals, and mirrors. One of the latest cars designed across the pond is the BAC Mono and it’s even more extreme than the others.
