Capping off a full day of racing Friday evening was the second-annual HyperFest / Street Driven Tour “Barbie Car Challenge,” in which NASA drivers and Street Driven Tour drifters battled each other in plastic, motorless kids’ cars through multiple elimination rounds of wheel-to-wheel racing down VIR’s turns 14–16 “rollercoaster.” Scrapes and bruises were the day’s badges of honor, and after a final-round “Le Mans start” that had racers running to their cars to start competition, defending champ and Captain Jack Sparrow doppelganger Jay West was edged out by Team Bimmerworld for the win.

Every year the audio portion of the event has grown to the extreme. You couldn't walk through the…

Redline Time Attack: Round 9

  As the 2010 Redline Time Attack season winds down, our second to last event is now in the books. The event was held at the famous Infineon Raceway (formerly Sears Point) in the heart of wine country, Sonoma, CA. While the normal talk in the region is about Cabernet, Merlot, and fine dining, the hot topic around the Infineon Raceway paddock was rain. Yes, there was rain, and lots of it. It rained virtually non-stop this weekend and teams were struggling to learn how to go fast in it. Rain does very funny things to race results. Front wheel…
