MotoIQ - Global Time Attack Round 2: Buttonwillow Raceway Park


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.

VtecClub-USA - Vtec Club 2017 Season, Round 1

March 26th marked the start of the 2017 season of VTEC Club, almost four months of off-season had passed since the final round of the 2016 season held on December 3rd 2016 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. The paddock was packed to the brim at the Streets course of Willow Springs International Raceway, Hondas of all generations and models were well represented – to the tune of 99 entries. Ninety-nine competitors, all Hondas, battled it out for the top spots in each class. It became apparent that many competitors had made the most of the downtime between seasons to revamp their cars for this year, of the five classes – two had their records rewritten by the end of the day. Not only were the times faster, the aesthetic presentation of many cars were also notably improved, several cars were freshly painted, some competitors had new wheels and we even spotted a new livery or two. Though these factors may not translate into faster times, spectators and drivers alike were visibly excited to see the result of what the competition had been up to during the off season.
