Redline TimeAttack: Brian Lock Race Recap and Next Round Info

April 17th, 2010

Continuing the updates from the Redline TimeAttack series, Cobb Motorsports’ pro driver Brian Lock has written up his race recap over on the COBB Tuning blog including how the guys were dealing with those pesky eletrical problems until the last minute.

Just when I thought COBB Motorsports was cursed with the worst bad luck on the planet (I could write a book on missed deadlines from vendors over the past two months), it got worse. The most random, confusing, undiagnosable limp mode was rearing its ugly head all day Sunday at the track. After pulling all-nighters, driving all around California to find a new motor for the GT-R, and just busting butt all week to get the GT-R repaired after the failure at Buttonwillow, to have the car possibly not finish the New Jersey event was almost more than I could bare. I saw the long faces in the paddock showing the disappointment in the prospect that we might not finish.

Redline TimeAttack: Round 3 This Weekend

On the subject of the Redline TimeAttack series, round three is coming up soon in Las Vegas. This should be a great one for GT-R fans as COBB are bound to putup a fight to make it back to back wins and it looks like quite a few NAGTROC members will be in attendance as well.

It’s on at Las Vegas Speedway from the 23rd – 25th of April and the organizers have announced a few new pricing plans for those wishing to take part and get their own car on the track from as little as $100 (if you sign up online for Friday). Las Vegas Speedway track time for $100!?! That even includes driver instruction and lap timing. Sweet deal. Head on over to their website for more information and to signup.

COBB Motorsports Win Big at Redline TimeAttack Round 2

April 12th, 2010

The huge 3,000 mile trek to New Jersey Motorsports Park for COBB Tuning Racing Team has paid off with an overall win for Brian Lock in the COBB Motorsports Modified class GT-R for round 2 of the Redline TimeAttack Series for 2010.

It wasn’t a walkover however and electrical problems with the GT-R causing limp conditions were damping their efforts to go all out in Sunday’s practice sessions. The guys worked hard on securing the cars electrical connections to ensure they couldn’t move about under high cornering loads and were rewarded when they were able to eliminate all trace of the problem. The GT-R’s laptimes improved instantly and they were able to turn an amazing 1:06.768!

This laptime was the quickest of the entire event meaning that, for the first time in Redline TimeAttack history, an overall win was given to a Modified Class car. The team also take home the Modified AWD and Modified Class trophies for the round.

Could the event win set a precedent for the rest of the series? We know the guys have the right car and the right driver to get there!

Congratulations guys and good luck for round 3 @ Las Vegas Motor Speedway on the 23rd – 25th of April!
