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.

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.

The Toyota Celica is a car that, if you are like me, you have probably admired and enjoyed over the years. And then wondered why it vanished from the lineup. Over the decades that Toyota produced this model they have been both fire breathing dragons and then merely enjoyable sporty type cars. Kyle Beaty's Celica GTS was the later. A sporty type car that began it's life with him nine years ago, as his first car and basic get around vehicle. The chassis of Kyle's Celica now has 380 000 kilometres or 236 000 miles on it. He has owned this 1990 model since he was seventeen. His first car. The one he drove to high school.

In 2013 Jimmy set multiple track records in the Canadian Sports Car Series (CSCS). Including a time at Toronto Motorsports Park of 1:14.376 in the unlimited Front Wheel Drive (FWD) class, besting his own record of 1:16.52 that he had set in 2012. Car and driver still hold the street car track record for CSCS, set in 2011 before it had forced induction. Not content with this season, Jimmy hauled his car 4000 kilometres to Buttonwillow to compete with Global Time Attack. He switched around his setup so that he could compete in the Limited FWD class. He placed second with a time of 1:55.685.
