It’s May! That can only mean two things: flowers blooming and racecars racing. Well I don't know about you, but I don't see no pansies above. That’s right, the world famous Month of May is upon us again and MotoIQ is back to cover The Indianapolis Grand Prix, Indy 500 qualifying, and the 101st Indy 500.

For the past few years, Formula Drift weekend at Road Atlanta has brought the Global Time Attack series in tow as a support event. By day, Road Atlanta sees lap after lap of GTA's classes pounding the pavement in pursuit of fractions of a second. By night, the machines of Formula Drift take the stage.

If you’ve been following World Superbike, you know Kawasaki has been dominating. The motorcycles used in World Superbike are highly modified motorcycles you can buy from your local dealer. World Superbikes are to street bikes like FIA GT3 cars are to street cars. Yeah, the bikes are highly modified, but the fundamental base is the same unlike MotoGP bikes. MotoGP bikes are the equivalent of Formula 1 where they probably don’t even share a bolt with the street bike. Back to the point- Kawasaki bikes kick ass in World Superbike, and the ZX-10R bike you can buy kicks ass too.

Global Time Attack returns to Buttonwillow Raceway Park to challenge the legendary 3.1 mile road coarse for GTA’s Pro Am Speed District round 2 event. With the weather predicted to hover around a beautiful mid 70 degrees throughout the race day, drivers arrive ready to attack the clock, reset records, and set a new standard of performance in their respective classes.
From completely stock Ford Mustangs and lightly modified Subaru BRZs, to the heavily modified unlimited class where one could stumble upon a J35A1 swapped Honda Civic Coupe built specifically for the circuit, a plethora of different types of cars can be found at any Global Time Attack event. Yes, you read it correctly, a stout V6 Honda Odyssey motor- in a Civic! This is the series where not only the world’s fastest and most dedicated drivers come to play, but a series where an enthusiast can find some of the most creative tuners in the industry. With this in mind, welcome to Global Time Attack! Let’s get started.

The cars created by Moti Almagor of Blackbird Fabworx have always caught our attention. More for less has always been the theme his creations. The Blackbird Fabworx cars have always eked amazing speed out of stock, very low powered engines. Lightweight, meticulous care in chassis setup, balanced brakes and carefully thought out aerodynamics have had a harmonious interplay in developing incredible speed from very little horsepower.

Repetition leads to boredom. Boredom leads to unrest. Unrest leads to new beginnings. Well, that, and running out of means will force a person to "reconsider the options available" in a fairly brisk manner. I've been precariously balancing the pocketbook of life for a while, be it health or wealth, youth and unrest, ambition and means. This is my life in motorsports, starting at 25.

Markos Mylonas just kicked a lot of ass in his Snail Performance WRX. See how he put the hurt on his Street AWD competition and threatened the times of GT-Rs with a smart selection of bolt-on components.

Global Time Attack is known to be the premier Time Attack series in Northern America, and arguably, in the western hemisphere of the globe. This isn’t MotoIQ’s first rodeo at another wildly successful GTA event, and it is far from being Global Time Attack’s first highly publicized, sold out competition. GTA teamed up with Honeywell Garrett for Boost Fest 2017, taking place at Southern California’s Streets of Willow Springs Raceway. Hundreds of teams and spectators made the trek to cold and windy Rosemond, CA, in order to pursue and find out who can put down the quickest lap times.
Drivers that are willing to risk it all for one hot lap are heavily rewarded at this track, however, isn’t that the very nature of Time Attack? This is why we love the sport, so let’s see what crazy competition there was and who brought their best!

JMS Racing is no stranger to AWD performance, having been in the Mitsubishi Evo game for some time. They also have been around the block when it comes to drag and other straight-line racing, having built the first 9-second Evo in Texas. At a customer's request they turned their attention to Subaru mile performance racing and built this 200+ MPH capable beast.
