The Spoon Sports Center Seat Civic at Super Lap Battle!

by Mike Kojima

We hope you've been following our progress in updating the Spoon Sports USA Time Attack FWD Unlimited Civic here on MotoIQ.  The idea behind this round of modifications was to mildly update the car, improve its safety and reliability, clean up the aerodynamics, and to try some new ideas that will be incorporated into a possible new build by Spoon Sports with the Type R Civic due next year.


 

Area 27: North America's Newest Road Course

by Frank Ewald

Area 27 is now fully paved. All 16 corners. All 4.83 kilometres / 3 miles. The pavement is a total of 4 inches thick and 12.2 metres / 40 feet wide. The total elevation change over one lap is 109 metres/357 feet. Turn 7 consists of two parts. 7a is nice. 7b has 11° banking and is absolutely incredible. The huge paddock is also paved along with the pit area - which is a combination of pavement and concrete. A trailer is currently housing the offices but clubhouse planning is in the works. In the not too distant future, members will also have the opportunity to have onsite condos. Obviously they will be complete with expansive garages! This track is set to be among the best of the best in North America.


 

Level Motorsport BMW E30: Part 2 - Brakes and engine

by Pablo Mazlumian

We're back to check out Level Motorsport's great work on this little BMW racer, and this time we conclude with the brakes and engine components. How much power is this car (which is fully built with used or in-house fabricated components) putting down, you ask? We've got the dyno chart, too.


 

Update: Spoon Sports USA Time Attack Civic!

by Mike Kojima

If you are a Honda fan or a follower of Time Attack then you are probably familiar with the Spoon Sports USA Civic, the little Honda that could. Last year the Spoon Civic with Formula Drift Champion Dai Yoshihara at the wheel, set the Time Attack world on its ear by surpassing the previously thought unbeatable FWD Unlimited lap record for Buttonwillow 13 CW.


 

Driving Impressions: The CXC Simulator! 

by Mike Kojima

I am not a gamer, I have never liked video games and never gotten good at them.  I have always felt that I don't have the time for them.  I mean, I own a driving simulator chair with force feedback that my daughter plays with when she does Grand Turismo on our home big screen TV but I never got into it and when I have played it, I have always felt that it feels nothing like a car, not enough anyway where I could jump in and drive it.

by David Zipf

The greatest man to ever lead a racing team is Roger Penske.  NASCAR, Formula 1, Can-Am, Trans-Am, ALMS, IMSA, V8 Supercars, and of course IndyCar:  All are series where Roger has fielded cars; cars that have won.  In 2016, Penske Racing celebrates its 50th year and as the track that helped make Roger who he is, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum has a special exhibit on Penske Racing to commemorate this golden anniversary.  Follow us on a journey of half a century of great American Racing.

When Motovicity Distribution announced The HKS Speedring Time Attack at Cal Speedway, the unique draw besides the guaranteed purse for the winners was announcement that HKS would be bringing their Time Attack R35 GT-R to the states, throwing down the gauntlet and offering a $20,000 prize to any team that could beat the car.

When Cole Powelson set out to build an R35 GT-R he initially didn't have the ambitious plans to build one of the world's fastest time attack cars. The 2012 GT-R originally was built as a modified but streetable time attack car which was run for fun.  Then the car was repurposed and underwent a metamorphosis, eventually being rebuilt into the sophisticated machine that appears on our site here.


 

Nerd's Eye View: Alex Kelsey's MC2 Rally Car

by Khiem Dinh

Rally cars are awesome. They are small, nimble, and pack a lot of horsepower to roast four tires worth of carbon into some smoky state between solid and gas. Most rally cars are built to a pretty common formula for rally cars based on a strict set of rules. There’s also a lot of heritage that goes along with rally racing. But what if you raced where the rules were more open? What would you do?


 

The Life of Opy: The Nissan Juke Multi-Purpose Racer: Part 3

by Khiem Dinh

The last time we saw the Nissan Juke Multi-Purpose Racer Opy, Opy had some fun competing at a hill climb event. However, Opy ran into some over-heating issues and Lars started working on upgrades. It was time to put in more equipment to put some more ‘Racer’ into the Multi-Purpose Racer too.
