Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix of Utah: A Fond Farewell

by Michael Chandler

Earlier this month, “this month” being August, we had what might be the last Pirelli World Challenge event at Utah Motorsports Campus for a while, if not ever.  Get yourself a sweet souvenir by buying a photo from the event!  With Utah Motorsports Campus being left off next year’s schedule, this event was probably the last time we’ll see the series roll through.  With that knowledge possibly weighing on the locals, they went out and had some solid showings.

David Askew and DXDT racing never left the podium for either of the GT Sprint-X AM class races, finishing first on Saturday and third on Sunday.

Despite only podiuming once, 2nd place on Saturday, Drew Stavely locked down the GTS-X Am championship on the very track where he teaches!  Yes, the Ford Performance Racing School instructor brought home the first championship for Ian Lacy Racing and G3 Racing with their Ginetta program.

Vesko Kozarov must be tapping into the same magic Arthur Golebiowski does, because he was no where near any of the other TC competitors!  He swept the weekend by bus lengths.

Other locals out racing on the weekend were the rest of the G3/Ian Lacy Racing team: husband and wife duo Frank and Jenny Gannet (Frank in the #24 Ginetta in GTS, Jen in the MX-5 Global Cup Car in TCA), and Steve Burns.

Daren Jorgensen was out and about in his M4 GT4 that’s probably been to more bucket list tracks than a lot of you reading this.  The car was shipped to Australia for the Bathurst 12 Hour, and has been doing regular GTS duty all season.

Lumber magnate (…sure?), and purveyor of fine grooming products, Jeff Burton was also out in GTS Am.  

In other news: I fell off a golf cart, almost ran into The Stradman (literally), met Tom O’Gorman, and caught up with friend of the program Ryan Eversley.  I also chatted with the dominant Bryan Herta Autosport Hyundai i30n TCR drivers about looking like the locals.  Anyway, here are a bunch of galleries to rifle through.  If you like what you see, you can buy some photos here.

A Totally American Car: 1991 GT bodied Lamborghini Diablo

by Michael Chandler

Sometimes good things just fall into your lap.  Chad’s ’91 Diablo is one of those things.

 

In the year of our lord, 1990, some crazy Italians using Chrysler’s money made the most glorious door stop shaped supercar to ever grace the earth: the Diablo.  Powered by a 5.7L, quad cam, fuel injected V12, the Diablo was absolutely mental.  It made 485 horsepower, and 428 lb/ft of torque.  All of that meant the glorious wedge hit 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, and topped out at 202 mph.

It was also utterly insane.  For reasons beyond comprehension, the Diablo came with a dog leg five speed manual gearbox.  What does dog leg mean?  It means that first gear is left and down instead of up.  You see this on things like the Mercedes 190E Cosworth, and other homoligation specials, not this high dollar beast.  Also, some of the cars had a SUPER tall cowl over the gauge cluster, making it a bit of a challenge for people not sitting on a stack of pillows.

Oh, Anti-lock Brakes, traction control, power steering, and airbags were non-existent on the early cars.

Mercifully, Chad Balloon white car has had a host of stuff from a later Diablo.  Specifically the 99-01 six liter cars.  It has the updated gauges, and seats.  Oh, and one other minor thing.

That sweet ass Diablo GT body!  Available only for 1999, the Diablo GT was there for 80 lucky people who wanted to die like heroes try their hand at racing.  The body is wider than the standard Diablo, has lots of carbon fiber, and had lights in different places.  And being from later car, it also had one key difference from the 1991 car it has been grafted on to.

NISSAN HEADLIGHTS!  Yes, the face lift cars ditched the pop-ups of the early cars and went with fixed headights.  Those headlights happened to be the same ones you’d find on the ’89-96 Nissan 300ZX.  It’s not a knock on Lamborghini, just a fun little tidbit that YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO UNSEE!

It stops as well as it goes, what with the massive Pirelli rubber on all four corners and the giant Brembos.

Chad has been going in depth with this car on his Instagram, and has some cool videos on his YouTube channel.  Check them out, and you can hear this thing in all of its V12 glory.

Here’s a gallery

by Trent

The inaugural Cars N Copters event kicked off last weekend on the beach in Huntington Beach, CA and it did not disappoint. More Koenigsegg’s were together in one spot than ever before, including the factory! 

I hit the road with Tommy Woot from Steady Broke(more on that story later) and checked out the Southern California car scene all weekend, but this was the highlight event.
