Inaugural Global Time Attack Breaks Off Records at WSIR



The AFI Turbo Honda S2000 was recently converted from a Limited GT class car to an Unlimited GT class in an extrememly short time span of just under two weeks.  A heartbreaking mechanical issue with the shift linkage combined with new car blues prevented them from showing their full potential. 


Berk Technology was the winner of the special wildcard award for the “Battle of the BMW’s” which was fought between the pair of BMW 135i’s of Berk Technology & Evolution Racewerks.  The BMW battle has been raging for over three years now with both teams always finishing P1 & P2 at any event where both cars are present.  The Berk Technology 135i also set the Time Attack Street RWD Class record at the event with a time of 1:29.041.


The Evolution Racewerks BMW 135i and GrandAm driver VJ Mirazayan fought the tightest battle at the entire event.  Evolution Racewerks broke their own record in Round 5 at GTA only to have it very narrowly broken again the next round.  VJ Mirazayan was still able to take home prize winnings totaling $500 courtesy of GTA and AFI Turbo.  They clicked off a blazing fast 1:29.209 lap time.


Oscar Jackson Jr. in the Sportcar Motion/Kraftwerks Supercharged Integra TypeR was able to fix setup issues over the weekend and dropped a whopping 20 seconds from Saturday to Sunday and took the class win in Limited GT FF.


Renzo Marsano was the winner of the the Mooby Award.  It is awarded for the biggest boner, or biggest muff up.  Marsano had a huge off track experience on turn 9 at Willow Springs and badly damaged his front splitter forcing him to retire early on Sunday.  Thankfully he put down his quick times earlier on Saturday and took 2nd place in the Unlimited FF GT Class.


It looks like the Snail Perfomance Subaru STI is running some of the LIC STI take offs.  You can still see the green Takata pinstripe on the wheels.  They took 3rd in the Limited GT AWD class and went home with some AFI Turbo contingency bucks and a set of steak knives.  


Evidenced by his utter lack of sponsor decals Adam Aquino was one of very few privateers at the GTA event. He was sporting a 600hp Subaru STI that he built by himself.  He stayed up all night fixing his oil pump in the pits and even did a hone job by hand with a rolled up piece of sand paper.
