2014 GTA Pro-Am by Shift-S3ctor Round 3 - Photo Gallery

Streets of Willow Springs hosts rare short track event for time attackers

Sep 15, 2014

Global Time Attack Pro-Am RD 3 Details:

  • Set at Streets of Willow Springs, CA on Saturday, September 6
  • 3rd of 4 2014 GTA Pro-Am West events | Shift-S3ctor, Targa Trophy also ran
  • Cole Powelson had best lap of 1:17.014 in his Unlimited AWD Nissan GT-R

It isn't all that often time attack series travel to Willow Springs International Motorsports Park to take on the technical, 1.8-mile, 15-turn Streets of Willow. Usually, it's the big track people hit; by many standards Streets is too short, not to mention the circuit boasts very few areas to really open up a vehicle. But none of that seemed to matter to the 30-plus hot-shoes who braved nearly 100-degree temperatures on September 6 to run Round 3 of the Global Time Attack Pro-Am by Shift-S3ctor.

It was event 3 of 4 of the 2014 Pro-Am West schedule, and joining the GTA lot were Shift-S3ctor track day enthusiasts as well as challengers in the Targa Trophy Super Track Series. Each had their own run groups, making for a pretty full day of competition across an eclectic mix of cars - from Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R to Mitsubishi EVO and Honda Civic.

Cole Powelson was unmatched in the entire field, putting down a blistering 1:17.014 in his Unlimited AWD R35 GT-R. In Limited, Will Wattanawongkiri took the class with a 1:19.837 from his S13, while Craig Peyron's 1:22.286 in his WRX STI was best in the Street Class. Finally, Frank Vasquez had the best lap in Enthusiast Class, orbiting in 1:32.375 with his E36 M3.

GTA Pro-Am is back in action October 18, this time on "Big" Willow, before closing out the year November 15 with us for the 2014 Super Lap Battle x GTA season finale at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. You can be sure some of these cars will be on hand for the biggest time attack North America has to offer.
