It may have only been the practice day for the 2017 Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge, but there was already plenty of action as teams get ready for an all out assault on this year’s leaderboard. There was plenty of drama today too with Chris Alexander’s R32 Skyline and Paul McKinnon’s Porsche both catching fire and now out of contention. There was a the usual hive of activity at the end of the day with engines out, heads off, gearboxes out and modifications to aero and set-ups. Andy Forrest from Scotland was all smiles though, with his answer to any work needing to be done overnight being “we need to replace a piece of race tape under there and that’s about it”.

The 2017 Honeywell Garrett Brisbane Jamboree may have had the best sports compact drag racing on the plant happening on track, but there was plenty of eye candy to check out off track too in the Babe and Bikini comps.
The boys from Croydon Racing Developments are primed for action at this weekend’s Jamboree. As well as sporting a refreshed engine, JUNII was also sporing new stickers and a new drag wing for testing today at Willowbank Raceway.
Once you get far enough into modified car land and you start owning “track only” cars, there reaches a point where you need something to tow with. Getting old also means you need something more sensible for daily transport. The usual “go-to” for a solution to this problem is either a big SUV or a traditional tradie ute, but, we beg to differ. There is a better solution. Something we consider the ultimate vehicle. The Hyundai iLOAD.
Meguiars MotorEx is the largest indoor car show in the country, and also considered the most prestiges. Our parent company, Jet Multimedia, was hired to film for MotorEx, but we were also invited to have a Motive DVD display and bring some cars which would help add some variety to the show.
We’ve known Ender for a long time, having competed in the Australian Drifting GP, but now his focus on his workshop, JDM Industries. We headed over for a look and were met by an array of tough JDM machines. Street, strip and circuit is now his focus, which was evident by the cars in the shop
We are proud to announce our newly designed R32 Skyline ducted headlight. Perfect for modified Skylines as the vent allows cold air into the engine bay and feeds straight to the pod filter. Highly beneficial for performance in such a tight engine bay that suffers from heat soak. Unlike other vented headlight ducts, it has a working head light that plugs straight into the factory headlight plug. Please note there is no park light or high beam, just a headlight.

The 2017 Motorsports Mechanical GT-R Challenge and Tuners Edge Drag Battle has been run and down and was by far and our biggest and craziest event to date as it continues to grow each year. Over 80 competitors from around Australia, including Tasmania, Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, converged into the small town of Cootamundra to attack the airport runway. We saw almost every record tumble this year and over 20 cars ran sub 10-second passes. The action, the racing and the drama was an all time high and we had more cameras, and a helicopter, than ever to cover it all. This year’s coverage will truly be our best yet.
At the 2017 LiquiMoly Bathurst 12-Hour we followed the Hobson Motorsport team on their journey for the weekend. Their first time racing their recently acquired GT3 GT-Rs and their first Bathurst 12-hour event. The ups and downs, the drama and the emotion. Part 1 covered Friday’s practice and we got to know the team. Part 2 overs qualifying and the big race. Watch the video to check it out.
