Event Coverage: 2017 Indianapolis 500 Presented by PennGrade Oil, Part 2

by Dave Zipf

We follow up after Dixon's mindblowing crash from Part 1 and continue to break down each wild scenario during the Indy 500. This was one of the wildest 500s we’ve seen in years.  It had everything: From huge crashes, to four-wide battles, mechanical intrigue, big name rookies and veterans, and a deserving dark horse winning in a shootout- racing really doesn’t get much better than it did at the 2017 Indianapolis 500.  It’s a great reminder, that there really is no place like Indy.


 

Global Time Attack Round 3: Willow Springs International Raceway

by David Kim

Big Willow at Willow Springs International Raceway is an unforgiving 2.5-mile road course that favors high powered vehicles and significantly rewards those with the finesse and confidence to push the limits of speed. Unsurprisingly though, this exhilarating track has claimed some of the finest engineered race vehicles throughout its creation since 1953. The first turn 1 and last turn 9 is unforgivingly quick to dish-out punishment for any driver error, and does not play nice with any chassis that is improperly setup for the high-speed corners. However, it is a challenging battlefield that is a favorite among many drivers that appeared at Global Time Attack’s 3rd Pro Am round of the 2017 season.


 

The Cars of Knox Mountain Hill Climb

by Frank Ewald

There was something for everyone at Leavitt Machinery's Knox Mountain Hill Climb that recently took place in Kelowna, B.C. The spectacular views of Okanagan Lake surrounded by mountains truly set the scene for this event. The cars ranged from open wheel through fully caged track cars to street prepared and then vintage. These cars ranged from obviously well-used track toys to vehicles that looked like they would be more at home at a show and shine placement. Make no mistake, the drivers were all here for one thing: to find their personal best and, just maybe, become the King of the Hill!

There is no place like Indy.  It’s big, it’s fast, it’s narrow, and the track is like no other on earth.  Even in this modern, high tech world, winning Indy is one of the toughest tasks in motor racing today.  The cars may be much faster and more reliable, but winning Indy in 2017 is still just as tough as it was in 1911.  


 

A Tribute to Nicky Hayden: The Kentucky Kid, The Champion of Champions

by Khiem Dinh

It has been some number of days now since Nicky Hayden passed away in a cycling accident. The world of motorsports still hurts with the void left behind. The Kentucky Kid, as he was known, was special in the high profile world of top-level motorsport athletes. His character, his work ethic, his love of riding and racing, his easy-going personality, and the time he made for his family and fans is what puts Nicky a step above any other athlete in motorsports. It is said over and over Hayden was the nicest guy in motorsports. He was the commensurate professional and never spoke negatively of anyone.


 

NX GTi-R: Hill Climb Edition

by Frank Ewald

Two years of wait time is over. With the car now running and putting down reasonable horsepower, it was time to dust off my driving gear and check out how rusty my skills had become. The NX GTi-R was pulled out of AES Auto, loaded up on my tow dolly, and started the trek east down the Trans-Canada Highway and Coquihalla Highway to Kelowna, B.C. and the home of Knox Mountain Park. This was the location of my next bucket list adventure, the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb.


 

Event Coverage: 2017 Indianapolis 500 Carb & Legends Day

by David Zipf

If you’ve followed our coverage of the Indy 500 here for the last couple years, you may have been mistaken for thinking that there isn’t much to do on Indy weekend aside from...you know...watch the race.  But that is where you would be mistaken.  The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has dedicated a lot of time and resources into turning the Indy 500 into a three day event, celebrating tradition, speed, and teamwork.  If you’re planning to attend the 500, plan to call in sick and spend Friday and Saturday enjoying the sights and sounds of Indy.


 

Analyzing Turn by Turn- the Leavitt Machinery Knox Mountain Hill Climb Course Technical Analysis

by Frank Ewald

The cover photo is of Wouter Bouman's 916 whp 3-rotor Mazda that put down 916 whp the week prior to the event while. During this anniversary edition of Knox Mountain Hill Climb, Wouter captured the overall victory and set a class record in the process. This is the 60th running of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb hosted by Leavitt Machinery. To this writer's knowledge, this is the oldest continuously running hill climb event in North America. The parkland at the start line quickly changes to the mountainous terrain that you can see in the background. That should give you a hint for what is in store.
