WORKS takes 1st Place in United States Touring Car Championship Season Finale at Infineon Raceway
 
After qualifying 1st and dominating all weekend, the team went to work and refined the Lancer to suit the track conditions at Infineon Raceway. On Sunday, Dave Brown got an amazing launch at the start and piloted the WORKS/Lifes Good Racing/San Rafael Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart to a 1st place finish in the USTCC (United States Touring Car Championship) season finale! A great ending for the car's first season and we're looking forward to next year.

In Loving Memory Of Donny Brown


We regret to inform our customers and friends that this weekend, the WORKS team lost a valuable co-worker, partner and most of all, our friend. All of the people that knew Donny Brown were touched by his smile, determination and overall good nature.

He was instrumental in our day to day business and he will be missed forever. Over the last year, his personality and presence was a positive influence on everything that we did, be it professionally or having fun at a track day. His number one priority was our customers, always.

Life will slowly return to normal, but we will always miss our friend Donny Brown.
 
 
WORKS takes 1st Place in United States Touring Car Championship at Sonoma Raceway
 
After qualifying 2nd on Saturday this past weekend, the team went to work and spent the night prepping the Ralliart for the hot track conditions at Sonoma Raceway. On Sunday, Dave Brown never looked back after the launch at the start and piloted the WORKS/Lifes Good Racing/San Rafael Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart to a 1st place finish in the USTCC (United States Touring Car Championship) 3rd race! A great result following a slow start to the season.

WORKS takes 2nd Place in United States Touring Car Championship
 
Competition was fierce in the USTCC race this weekend as Dave Brown piloted the WORKS/Life's Good Racing/Mitsubishi Motors Lancer Ralliart Touring Car to an exciting second place finish by 1 foot! As Dave led the last laps with Pete Bovenberg right behind him, Pete dove into Turn 11 using very little brakes in the last lap and it was a photo finish. One of the closest in NASA's USTCC history!

WORKS takes 2nd Place in Modified AWD last weekend at Redline Time Attack

Competition was fierce in the Modified AWD class this weekend as we were up against the Cobb Tuning Nissan GT-R and the LIC-Takata Subaru STI. Our driver on Saturday, Lars Wolfe, drove confidently in the pouring rain (we can thank his background in rally racing for that!). Dave Brown drove the WORKS Evo X on Sunday to a Second-In-Class Time Attack and a Second-Overall Supersession win this past weekend at Redline Time Attack. Now we are preparing the car and our '09 Ralliar rally car for SEMA next week. Great job Lars and Dave!


 
We also had WORKS customers Palmer Sanderson take Third Place in Enthusiast FWD in his '08 Lancer GTS and Mike Butler take Second Place in Street Tire AWD in his '08 Evo X. We hope to see them out putting it down in future events here at Infineon.

Jeff Pippy takes 1st In-Class at Canadian Sport Compact Series Finale

WORKS sponsored Jeff Pippy wrapped up the 2010 season with a 1st place win at Toronto Motorsports Park on 9/26! Season standings are not yet posted, but it sounds like he threw a wrench in the championship. We can't wait to see what he does next year!


 



 



 


 

WORKS newest sponsored racer takes 2nd In-Class at Canadian Sport Compact Series

Jeffy Pippy drove in the Super Street class on Aug 22 at Toronto Motorsports Park in his 2008 Evo GSR and took 2nd place, beating out the next competitor by 2.3 seconds! With the help of our Brain Flash and Cosworth USA his best lap time was reduced by almost 5 seconds. He plans to race in the Targa Newfoundland someday, so we look forward to watching him hone his skills as a driver. We will continue to post his story here and on our Facebook page.

A week at WORKS
 
The last few weeks have been rather eventful around these parts. NASA was here the weekend of the 26th-27th running all of their racing and HPDE events. A few of the WORKS employees were running in HPDE and we were all here to enjoy the great racing all day. Also this last week, Time Attack Champion Ryan Gates stoped by the shop to do some work on his car before an event with Mitsubishi the following day. It was great to talk with Ryan and to see his recently rebuilt Evo X GSR.

WORKS TUNES DRIFT EMPORIUM S15 SILVIA WITH TITAN V8 
 
Drift Emporium is up at Infineon Raceway this week for a Formula D event that is supporting the IRL weekend. They brought one of their baddest toys over to WORKS for a dyno tuning session before the event kicks off. The Drift Emporium S15 Silvia is powered by a Nissan Titan V8 that has been worked over and tweaked with some cool modifications including individual throttle bodies topped off with K&N stack Filters. The car sounds like a monster and spins the tires with ease. We hope to have video up shortly, but for now here are a few pictures:

Fun in Vegas at the KDW Challenge
 
July 11th-12th WORKS spent the weekend in Las Vegas participating in the BF Goodrich KDW Challenge. We brought out two of our vehicles--the WORKS EVO X time attack car and the WORKS Lancer Ralliart rally car--and were able to give some lucky particpants a thrill ride on the track. WORKS driver's Dave Brown and Lars Wolfe were on hand to provide the tire screaching action. Both WORKS vehicles performed amazingly in the scorching 110 degree desert heat and big smiles were had by both passengers and drivers. Special thanks to BF Goodrich, HotBits, AST and Autopower for making this a successful event for WORKS.
 

 
WORKS EVO X Gets Seibon Carbon Fiber Treatment
 
The truck arrived yesterday with a special shipment direct from our new partner Seibon. The techs went straight to work installing the Seibon Carbon Fiber front and rear doors, 10mm wide front fenders, hood, front lip and rear wing.With all the carbon parts fitted to the car we estimate a weight savings of 300-400 lbs. On top of that we think the car looks fantastic. A big thank you to the folks at Seibon for making this happen. We also want to thank Autopower for sending over a custom made bolt-in roll cage in time for us to make the BF Goodrich event. Now we are off to the KDW Challenge!
