Triple Victory at Redline Time Attack!!!

4th of July Weekend at Willow Springs Raceway: Sweet Success for the ER Team!

Results:

  • Street Class RWD Win: 1:29.331sec
  • Overall Street Class Win: 1:29.331sec
  • New Lap Record for Street Class RWD: 1:29.326sec
  • Circuit Battle Win: Over 2sec lead

We've had months of careful preparation and continuous development on our BMW 135i project car, not to mention the blood, sweat, and tears (literally!)... and we've finally reaped the rewards our dedicated crew deserves!

With our awesome driver, VJ Mirzayan at the wheel, and new sponsorship from Hankook Tires and Velocity Motor Cars, our twin-turbo BMW set a scintillating time of 1:29.326 during the Circuit Battle on Saturday night and smashed the previous track record for Street Class RWD by more than 3 seconds! We now own this track record.

VJ also laid down a smoking time of 1:29.331 during the Competition session on Sunday, which ensured us Street Class RWD victory. VJ's time also made us the fastest Street Class car of the day - beating even the AWD competitors.

Among a number of changes to aerodynamics and suspension, the 135i was using new Hankook Ventus RS-3 tires for the first time. The RS-3 is Hankook's Extreme Performance Summer DOT-legal tire... and VJ loved them! Velocity Motor Cars provided us with all the rear suspension arms which helped the 135i's stability and helped give us a competitive edge.

During Saturday's Circuit Battle, ER went head-to-head with Berk Technology's 135i. These two cars have similar engine and chassis modifications and are even using the same tires. However, the ER 135i was unstoppable this weekend, beating the Berk Technology 135i by almost 1 second, with an advantage of more than 2 seconds for the two combined hot laps.

After making more adjustments on Sunday morning, the car continued to run strong in the Competition Rounds. We set our fastest lap of the day at 2 pm, despite the high temps.

A big round of applause for the ER team, our driver, VJ Mirzayan, and our sponsors! Thank you!!!

Another Podium Finish!

Redline Time Attack Series Round 4 @ Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA saw us take another podium finish!  We were delighted to hold the fastest times through Saturday practice as well as Sunday's qualifying.  This was our first outing running a new tire, the Toyo R1R which performed exceptionally well through the weekend.  However, the softer compound caught us off guard and by Sunday's competition timed sessions, we were desperately in need of new rubber.  Undoubtly, this would have maintained our competitive edge especially with our new aero upgrades (rear wing and rear diffuser) tailored specifically for the high speeds at Auto Club Speedways oval.  We finished 3rd with a time of 1:52:463.

On that note, we are proud to announce our newest sponsored car, the Berk Technology BMW 135i.  Fitted with our charge pipe, came in 2nd place with a time of 1:51:373.  Congratulations to Mike Bonanni and the Berk Technology crew for the awesome finish!

Podium Finish!!!

The race season is back and we started it off strong with a podium finish! 

March 26-28th was the season opener for the Redline Time Attack Series @ Buttonwillow Raceway.  With the long break of the offseason, this usually means that major changes and upgrades are done during this time.  First races of the season are tough as this is usually the first time we put these changes and upgrades to the test.  This offseason, we decided that it's time to work on the aeros.  Front splitter and big rear wing.  Can't avoid it any longer.  We must do it, it works. 

Our goal going into the event was to beat our best time @ Buttonwillow Raceway (2:00:994) that we put down at the last race during the Super Lap Battle as well as try to break the 2:00 barrier.  Unfortunately however, for this event, we only had 1 set of tires.  The same set we used at Super Lap Battle Finals 2009!  Being many months old and now being on it's 3rd event, it had long past it's prime.  We rotated the tires to try to extend the life of the tires and it worked.  During our first pratice session, we did it!  We put down 1:59:738, our best time yet and under 2:00 minutes!  By the time the actual competition portion started, the tires were done.  With each lap during practice, our times got slower and slower.  We pulled in early to try to save what was left of the tires for competition.  With the great VJ Mirzayan behind the wheel, we gave it one last push during competition.  With 2:00:520 clocked during competition, we podiumed with a 2nd place finish in Street Class RWD!

Mounting the APR Performance carbon fiber wing.  Yes, we did it at the track.  Yes, we did not sleep the night before.

With the success of our first event, we going for the championship!  Next up: Redline Time Attack Round 3 @ Las Vegas Speedway.  We'd like to thank our gracious sponsors for continuing their support for our 2010 racing campaign!  Many thanks goes out to Yokohama Advan Tires, Brembo, KW Suspension, Forgeline Wheels, Hawk Performance Brakes, GIAC, RobiSpec, Wavetrac Differentials, Injen, Snow Performance Methanol Injection, Road Race Engineering, The Wheel Supply and GenX Graphics!  Special thanks goes out to our new sponsorship partner, APR Performance for their GTC-300 adjustable carbon fiber wing!  Another special thanks goes out to our tech friends from South Bay BMW.  They came out to watch the show and we put them to work hehe!  But always, thanks to our incredible driver, VJ Mirzayan for making our hard work look good!

End of the Year Garage Sale!

It's that time of the year that we do a major cleanup of the shop. We accumulate a bunch of stuff throughout the year that serves us no purpose anymore except take up precious space.  Take a look at our garage sale.  Might find something useful you can use for cheap.  Keep checking back.  We keep finding stuff to put up.


Super Lap Battle Finals 2009

It's that time again, Super Lap Battle Finals.  We improved our best time at Buttonwillow by almost 3 seconds this time.  Best time of the day was 2:00:944 which placed us in 5th place in Street Class RWD.  Not the best finish but big improvements in our best time made it a happy day.  We still have lots of room for improvements so we're very excited about 2010.  The car has no aerodynamic work yet but this off season we will address this.  Also have a few secret tricks up our sleeves.  Stay tuned.  As with everything we do with racing, you'll see it on our parts catalog after we thoroughly tested it through our race program.

 

We have a special treat this time courtesy of Sam Du, features editor @ Eurotuner Magazine.  He placed his camera on our 135i during the last session of the day.  We got some fun videos for you guys to see.  Enjoy!
