Ultimate Track Car Challenge & Forged GTR-Life Track Event @ VIR

Tirerack Presents 
Ultimate Track Car Challenge

   

The Annual Ultimate Track Car Challenge at VIR

Friday July 18th

Will You Be One of Our Fast 50?

 

From Grassroots Motorsports

With our annual no-holds-barred track competition, the aim is to find the fastest machine on four wheels. The Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports returns to Virginia International Raceway on July 18, 2014. Bring your raucous, flame-belching beast to the track and see if you can best the competition.

The rules are simple: All your car needs to do is pass a NASA safety inspection. Run any tire and any suspension type; add seven turbos, superchargers, displacement, spinning triangles; mount it to a production-based chassis or tube frame; use chromoly, carbon fiber, lexan-whatever your wrenching heart desires.

What do you win? Bragging rights. Wave your trophy of triumph in the air and watch 49 of your fellow track mates quiver in fear of your awesome horsepower and incredible ability as a wheelman. There can be only one ultimate track car, and only one ultimate track car driver. It could be you.

6th Annual GTR Track Day at VIR

Friday July 18th

Still time to sign up!

 

From Forged Performance

The 6th Annual Forged Performance VIR Track Day is just ahead of us!

This event is a must for super car and modified vehicle owners all across the U.S. We’ve hosted this event the past five years, in accordance with NAGTROC, with great success, and we have now opened the event up to all kinds of performance vehicles (Porsche, Nissan, Infiniti, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Lotus, etc.).

We have always had a blast at this event, and there’s an awesome turn out from the GT-R community. Whether you’re a performance car owner or just an enthusiast, this event is never a disappointment.

Virginia International Raceway presents 3.27 miles of challenging corners and includes two 3000ft – 4000ft straightaways that allow you to fully open up your beast. This is, arguably, one of the most enjoyable road course experiences a car enthusiast will have.

Come out and see what your vehicle can do on one of the greatest tracks in North America!

Team Traqmate will be on hand for sales and trackside support. 

Look for Andre’ in the big hat!

Canadian Historic Grand Prix

   

VARAC 2014 Canadian Historic

Grand Prix at Mosport 

  

The Canadian Historic Grand Prix is the largest vintage race in Canada and we were very excited to be a part of it.

The races featured famous marques like BMW, MG, Triumph, Jaguar, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Mini and many more! Mosport is one of the last historic Grand Prix tracks in North America and hosted the Canadian F1 Grand Prix for several years. This nearly 2.5 mile track has loads of elevation change and high speed blind corners as you can see in the video. Heard in the paddock from a very experienced racer, “The thing I like best about Mosport is that it scares you at least 3 times per lap.” 

 

Check out our video as the Lotus battle at Indy continues in Canada.

 

 
NEW PRODUCTS !
TraqData USB allows any Traqmate system to connect, control and charge 2 cameras at one time. It also provides 4 analog inputs, 1 digital and rpm data logging. 
You can even use it in conjunction with your existing TraqDash cameras for up to four cameras at once!
The TraqData USB is designed to work with the Mobius, Replay Mini, and upcoming Replay Prime X cameras.
The Replay Mini camera is perfect for open cars. It is aerodynamic, lightweight, waterproof, supports an external microphone, and has replaceable lens protectors. Mini will be available for direct connection to the TraqDash in early July.
The Replay Prime X is the new super camera with unparalleled video quality that will raise the bar in action cameras. It is expected to debut in late July.

 

Also available in July, TraqData USB will control and charge Mobius and Replay cameras on TraqDash, Traqmate Classic, and Traqmate Basic systems. There will be Traqmate bundles and upgrade packages available so watch for the announcements.
