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.
There’s also a nice onboard video of a lap of the New Jersey Motorsports Park with Brian driving to checkout below. Click over to the COBB Tuning blog at the link below to read up on the whole recap.
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.1 comment
