Dai gives us a walk around of his 2016 Turn 14 Falken Tire Subaru BRZ drift car. We also caught up with him after his 2nd place podium finish at Formula D Rd.2 Atlanta. It was his first podium in 3 years so you can see how happy he is with the results!

In case you missed it, the Indianapolis 500 celebrates a milestone this year. While the 100th anniversary of the great race occurred in 2011, the 100th running of the race is happening in 2016. The Indy 500 has been a racing institution for over a century and 2016 is arguably one of its biggest and most important years. With the largest paying crowd since The Split two decades ago, can the Indy 500 reclaim its place as the biggest race in the world? It all starts with qualifying and you can read about it here.

We first took a look at the famous and controversial Elan Delta Wing a couple of years ago. At the time the car was a super radical departure from the norm that made headlines all around the world. If you have been living under a rock for the past few years, the DeltaWing is the brainchild of Ben Bowlby whose design concept is that less is more.

NASA’s American Iron series is the modern equivalent of the Trans Am Series of the 60's and 70's; where Ford, GM, and Mopar cars slug it out in American Iron (AI) and the cars follow a weight to power ratio much like our own MPTCC series. In addition to AI, NASA also has classes for American Iron Extreme (AIX), where rules are more lax and horsepower gets insane; and Spec Iron (SI), where cars are built to one specification with the 05-10 Ford Mustang being the only chassis allowed. Dave Martis competes in the AI class with his K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR and has allowed us to show you the details of his amazing ride!

The month of May means many things to many people. To some, it means breaking out the swimsuit and enjoying the sun for the first time in months. For others, it’s a reason to celebrate a popular science fiction series. And for plumbers it mean replacing toilets after they’ve been destroyed by a night of Corona and tacos. But for racing fans, all eyes turn to Indianapolis as the Verizon IndyCar Series visits one of the most famous racing venues in the world: The Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These days IMS hosts not one, but two races for IndyCar: the world famous Indy 500, and the growing Grand Prix of Indianapolis held on the infield road course. To kick off the month of May, we’re turning both left AND right.

If you are a fan of drifting, then you know all about Forrest Wang, who is renowned for his spectacular high angle and smoky driving style. His car builds have a lot of style as well and we have been trying to catch up with him for a year to be able to capture one of his masterpieces in a story.

In just a few years this 350Z has transformed from a pristine example of a Nissan 350Z to a mean and lithe example of an incredibly effective track car. Aesthetics being tossed aside in the aim to gain that fraction of a second to attain the top of the podium. The question that I asked, and likely some of you are wondering also, is how did Mike go from being a hard parker to being one of the most focused time attack drivers that I have met. I mean, he is so intent and tenacious at the track that it is difficult to have a conversation with him. When the competition is over, he is more than ready and willing to talk about his car and his journey into the world of Time Attack. Sorry for misleading you, though, it actually took a lot more than 12 steps to build this race package and none of them were easy!

The weekend of March 11th to 13th, 2016 marked the 7th annual running of Endurance Karting’s “24 Hours of America” event. This year’s enduro was held at the karting complex at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana. While only open since late 2011, NOLA has quickly become a favorite facility for fans and racers alike here in the South.

The IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship has some of my favorite cars in all of motorsports because the GTLM class cars are based off of cars you can actually buy. Granted, they are very heavily modified, but they do start off as something you can buy. They also borrow heavily from their street car brethren putting some street parts, namely their engines, into accelerated race car durability testing.

Partnership, sponsorship, what’s the difference right? Although most of the automotive industry uses “sponsorship” as a general blanket term there is a major difference between a sponsorship and a partnership and they should in no way, shape, or form be treated the same way.
