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.

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.

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.

When it comes to building cars, I've always tried to maintain a "keep it simple, stupid" approach. At the center of my dead reliable formula was my factory re-flashed ECU. When I decided to get serious about land speed racing, along with that came an exponentially growing need for more capability. I reluctantly dug my heels in denial, touting my "keep it simple stupid" argument. Ironically, that very argument was what would convince me to finally make the change to a standalone ECU. It comes down to this one question. Is a race car running a re-flashed ECU in tandem with a plethora of standalone systems for boost control, wide band sensors, variable valve lift, and data logging really simple? No. Enter the AEM Infinity 8 EMS.

With day one of competition in the books, it was now time for the final showdown to commence at Sydney Motorsports Park. Scorch Racing was at the top of the Pro Class leaderboard, with MCA and Tilton nipping at their heels less than a second behind. And who could have predicted that a Pro-Am car would be at the top of the overall rankings!? PMQ Racing's Evo blistering time of 1:25.27 was the talk of the paddock at the end of Friday's competition schedule and fans and teams alike we're anxious to witness what would happen on the final day of the 2014 World Time Attack Challenge.

The World Time Attack Challenge has come a long way since its initial running back in 2008 when it was simply an Australian time attack event. WTAC has grown from a national event to one of the most anticipated time attack events in the world. The formula has been a very simple one, provide a venue and the means for the fastest time attack machines in the world to compete while giving fans a wide variety of motorsport related activities to enjoy. The level of competition at WTAC is on a completely different level than we're used to seeing in the states. Couple that with an extremely passionate fan base and there is no surprise why the WTAC has earned a permanent spot in our event calendar.
