Blast From The Past: 2013 Super Lap Battle Photos

This post was 4 years in the making! 2013’s Super Lap Battle was a year we didn’t compete and because of this, we flew the Professional Awesome crew out to enjoy the race, provide coverage for MotoIQ.com and to help our friends. For the online story, I jumped in a bit over my head as I didn’t know much about photography. Luckily, I enlisted the help of Alec Cervenka and Paul Kapoor so we could produce a respectable article for MotoIQ. We literally took thousands upon thousands of photos and I never really got to go through them all before […]

Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle 2017 Recap

I lay in bed, a bit over 24 hours after the end of Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle 2017 event, reflecting on how crazy the race went. The team came so prepared, with the goal firmly on setting the fastest lap of Buttonwillow ever. The last 8 months have been nearly 7 days a week work on the car to prepare ourselves to the highest standards possible. The chassis was thoroughly reworked, 200 pounds lighter than before, a whole new suspension front and rear, revised brake system, sequential transmission, new aero, a fresh engine, fresh turbo and the best […]

Recap of Global Time Attack/Super Lap Battle

Global Time Attack’s Super Lap Battle has always been a tale of two stories for the team. One where we are hit with monumental adversity and challenges in the highest-pressure situations.

Riding this knife edge is full of tension and stress, but the team has been able to thrive in these conditions. Leading up to the race, we had done everything in our power to reduce the chances of problems popping up, but of course Buttonwillow seems to always […]

Hello again, loyal fans of Professional Awesome Racing! All the rumors that I have been abducted by aliens/pirates/pygmies have been grossly exaggerated, I’ve just been slaving away at work while the rest of the guys have been busy breaking records. My priorities aren’t in order and I look to fix that soon. Promise. Dan-O passed this video along to me and I thought that I would be kind enough to share it with everyone on the internets! Take a ride along the fastest AWD Street car in America and see what it’s like to go flat-out on one of the […]

Global Time Attack- Infineon Raceway 2011

So it has been 15 days since I have returned from California and there is no recap of the event. What gives? Well, for me, the write-up of an event is a story to tell. I learned in English class, between naps and reading Road & Track, that stories are either comedies or dramas. Our trip out West was incredible fun, challenging, rewarding and something I look forward to doing again sometime soon, but it was without any major drama or ironic humor. Our previous event, in Chicago, we had to find a transmission with hours to spare. Last year in […]
