Default PR: Takata/LIC Motorsports RTA Season Opener

March 27-28th 2010

Redline Time Attack recently hosted their season opener at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, and LIC Motorsports was there to debut the Takata Time Attack Impreza. Adam, Noah, and the rest of the LIC Motorsports crew were proud to debut the car as the 2 months preceding the event were consumed with long hours to prepare the car. The last week was a carefully orchestrated plan including a trip to Cobb Tuning Surgeline for dyno tuning, graphics application by Creatis Group, and little sleep for Adam and Noah.

"Because of our tight schedule, James did not have an opportunity to test the car prior to the event" said LIC Motorsports manager Noah Levy. "We were impressed by how quickly James adapted to the car and was running fast laps.

In Saturday's testing James steadily improved in times with each session as adjustments were made. Modifed AWD was shaping up to be one of the most competitive classes at the event with talented competitors such as Brian Lock, JC Meynet, Nils Leufvens, and 2009 Season Champion Ryan Gates. Unfortunately Meynet and Gates did not make the starting line on Sunday as their cars suffered failures prior to the Time Attack. In Sunday's Time Attack James managed the sneak past Nils in the final session to capture 2nd place by mere tenths of a second, while Brian Lock in the Cobb Tuning GTR took the win.

The event had a spectacular conclusion for Takata Time Attack in the Super Session as the fastest cars at the event lined up for a 5 lap wheel-to-wheel sprint race. With the Super Modified cars opting not to compete, the front line consisted of Brian Lock and James Elterman in row 1, with 6 cars behind them. As the green flag dropped, Brian's Cobb GTR leaped to secure first. On lap two, Brian went too deep into turn 1 allowing James to sneak past on the inside. James was not able to pull away from the GTR and Brian once again reclaimed the lead on the front straight on the start of lap 3. Brian began to pull away from James and had a good lead until a mechanical failure forced him to retire on lap 4. James reclaimed the 1st position and retained it to the checked flag! This marks the first Super Session win for Takata Time Attack and James Elterman. The bonus points accrued in the Super Session put Takata Time Attack on top of the Modified AWD class after Event 1.

"I am very grateful for the hard work the LIC Motorsports crew put into preparing the car" said driver James Elterman. "Their efforts clearly paid off as we had one of the most reliable cars at the track. I have never experienced the shakedown of a new car that went so well. We have some minor hurdles to overcome, but I am confident that we soon will and I expect us to be a front runner all year. Thanks to all of the friends of Takata Time Attack and LIC Motorsports who came out to the event to support us"
