The minute that HKS had broken the 49 second barrier at Tsukuba, it seemed as if their were rumors circulating about it’s potential bid for WTAC. After some speculation, it was revealed that the car was built outside the Pro Class rulebook and wouldn’t be eligible to run competitavely. That didn’t stop anyone from wondering just what it could do on the world stage of Sydney Motorsports Park, however. Well, according to Superlap CEO Ian Baker, it looks like we’ll get an opportunity after all.
Site News: Storefront Announcement
In an attempt to expand the communication in regards to storefront opening dates and times, I’ve committed to announcing on the site each time the store is restocked and I plan to re-open it. I get plenty of emails from people who missed out, or request to be notified each time I open the store; as you know that would be impossibly tedious to individually email hundreds of people. Instead, the easier solution, is to subscribe to the site via the ‘follow’ button located on all pages, and when I post opening dates you will receive notifications straight to your inbox!
Site News: Poly-Tech Outerwear Pre-Order

I wanted something practical, something with a styled, motorsport feel, and ultimately something that would keep you warm (especially those cold winter mornings in Japan)! So it is with great satisfaction that I present to you the Dogfight Poly-Tech Sweatshirt.

News: US F1 Austin Track Layout Revealed
People who know me will tell you I’m somewhat ‘obsessed’ with Formula 1; and with F1 being the absolute pinnacle of motorsports, it doesn’t go without reason. So when I logged into Formula1.com today and saw that legendary track architect Hermann Tilke, along with the race organizers, had revealed the new Austin layout, I was pleasantly surprised.

Many of the other corners take ques from legendary circuits around the world, increasing the anticipation to see this track completed. F1 has been gone from United States for 5 years now, and many of us American fans are dying to see it’s return. Now if we could only get a team up and running by 2012 as well.
