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.

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.

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 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.

Ever since we laid eyes on the conceptual drawings and parts of the NASA/Elan NP01 at the PRI Show 2 years ago, we have been enamored by it. Since we have loved the exotic cars in the various Prototype classes throughout history, we saw the NP01 as the affordable Prototype. The fact that it looks like a contemporary P class car seals the deal!

There was a time in the import world when a 10-second car was considered blazing fast. The Nissan GT-R was always a little more special, though. 10-second GT-Rs, especially in street trim, were not hard to come by. Mark Johnston’s 2012 GT-R “Premium” definitely fits into that special category, knocking on the door of the 8.0s with a best run of 8.15 at 177 mph in the quarter. But that’s not why we’re here.

When thinking of the 24 Heures du Mans that takes place at the fabled Circuit de la Sarthe, Gainesville, Georgia is not the first place that comes to mind. Even though Georgia may conjure associations with the Petit Lemans, a 12-hour enduro that takes place in the fall of each year at Road Atlanta, the storied French endurance event and metro-Atlanta aren't exactly synonymous. Those who fail to make the association between Mulsanne and Gainesville Highway are overlooking a crucial part of Ford's GT racing history, as this is where you will find the current home of Robertson Racing.

The good old stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar has been doing yeoman duty, reliably lasting for the last few years racing in the MotoIQ Pacific Tuner Car Championship and doing many for-fun track days. The stock SR20DE in our Project G20 Racecar came from a Japanese engine importer and has never been opened up, other than to add big cams back when we used to run the car in N/A trim. For the past three years the engine has been turbocharged which has greatly increased the strain it's experienced.
