Buttonwillow CW13 sub-50 club

It used to be that going faster than 2:00 was REALLY fast at buttonwillow CW13. It’s still an impressive benchmark, but there are more and more cars that will do that off the lot. I recall a stock GTR going 1:55 a couple years ago at the hands of Billy Johnson, so now I have […]

Willow Springs top 40 time attack cars

So due to popular demand I made this list longer, and updated it with the results from recent Shift-Sector/GTA and Redline events. I suppose one of these days I could go through some nasa or other events but due to the big rules differences and number of events that will be a little difficult. So […]

Willow Springs Top 20 Time Attack Cars

THIS POST IS OUT OF DATE. Please go here: http://hellafunctional.com/?p=490 I tracked down all the time attack results since 2007 thanks to Mike Bonnani (you got BONNANIED!) who’s in charge of the course records section on the time attack forums and has kept impeccable records since the start of time attack in the US. Nik […]

Buttonwillow Top 20 Time Attack Cars

I’ve recently noticed that it is very hard to track down results and times from past Time Attacks, especially the Redline events. Buttonwillow is what many consider the most important venue for time attack in the country, and you would think it’d be easy enough to find a database of lap times from there. Turns […]

FXMD NSX at Superlap

Here’s the Factor X Motorsports Development NSX running an 1:41.9 at Buttonwillow CW13: They’d go much faster on their usual Yokohama slicks, and perhaps also quicker on Hankook C91s. They made an attempt later in the day when the track was slower on the C91s and said they were on a faster pace when a […]
