Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle | Buttonwillow Raceway Park | Teaser Photos

I’ve been up for almost 24 hours, but the action at the Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway Park earlier today was too awesome not to share some photos with you fans. The weather was cool and mild, the sun was out, and the grid was full of cars anxious to get out of the track to see who could get the fastest lap time in their class. It was an awesome day to hang out at the track with some of the most passionate car enthusiasts around.

We saw tons of photos of this beast that was just at SEMA at the Turbos by Garrett booth. Great to see a SEMA car go from the show to the track just like that.

Our good buddy Will behind the wheel of the WWR 240 out there doing well. He was one second away from breaking the record in his class, but a bad clutch slave costed him a lot of time and made it difficult for him to put together a clean hot lap.

Another face familiar in the Formula D paddock was Tyler McQuarrie, who was getting things done in the Platte Forme a.g. e46, the limited-class RWD record holder from last year.

Brand new wide fenders from Victory Function on the Gates 311/AMS Evo X. Expect to see a lot of great products from this company in the near future. Designed by a group of engineers who are also big car buffs.

Congrats to the Platte Forme a.g. team for a successful day at Super Lap Battle. They managed to run a 1:48 before blowing their diff that ended their day in the early afternoon. That time got them the win in the limited RWD class, the overall fastest car in the limited class, and also the fastest car of the day period. A big win for them.
