The DeltaWing Revisited 

by Mike Kojima

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.  


 

K&N Mustang American Iron RTR

Fully Filtered: Dave Martis’ K&N Engineering Ford Mustang RTR

by Justin Banner

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!


 

Event Coverage: Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis

by David Zipf

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. 


 

350Z Track Monster - from Bling to Brute in 12 Easy Steps!

by Frank Ewald

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!

Sneak Peek: The Engines of IMSA Weathertech GTLM

by Khiem Dinh

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.


 

How we Killed the Value of a Partnership

by Mike Bonanni & Jordan Yost

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.

Yost Autosport at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill & VIDEO

by Mike Bonanni

The 25 Hours of Thunderhill; North America’s longest endurance race is no joke. Yost Autosport team principle Jordan Yost has always said “You have to know in January that you’re going to race the 25 Hour in order to have any chance of making it.” The race itself takes place the first week of December every year at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Northern California. Its cold and most years the race is thrown a curve ball by Mother Nature whether it be rain, fog, or both. The range of machinery spans from Spec Miatas and 100 horsepower Honda Fits all the way to factory GT3 spec race cars and top level prototypes providing an incredibly interesting race to not only watch, but be a part of, completely different from any other endurance race out there. Just finishing this race is something almost half of this year’s 65 car field didn’t accomplish.
