Georgia Tech Wreck Racing dominated the autocross portion of the Grassroots Motorsports $2017 Challenge by more than a second in their Subaru-powered Honda Insight. This was not their fastest run of the day, but it gives you an idea of the car’s performance.

Hey, that's me working station 1. 

I assume John Thomas was the driver.

Doesn't look nearly as quick as you'd expect...but you can see the Insight's secret: Rotation, rotation, rotation!

This was one of their earlier runs. They definitely dialed it in with the last couple.

Maybe no a motorsports video, but Mike Kelley used to come to our $2000 Challenge.

It's a motor-bicycle now, so yes it is a motorsports video!

Ask Matt Hoffman on his mega quarterpipe back in the day. Except the motor he put on his bike wasn't electric.

GRM $2016 Challenge Drag Pass, Parking Lot Build vs. Fraulein Rust

Amazingly, this G.I. Joe-inspired Challenge entry was built in just 48 hours in a parking lot. Going from a stock 1997 Pontiac Firebird to the caged, painted car you see staging in the left lane. Their top time was a 13.965 in the quarter mile, staged against Team Fraulein Rust with their 1974 BMW 2002.

Circuit Motorsports Justang $2016 GRM Challenge Drag Pass

What on earth is a Justang? If you watch our GRM Live! show, you already know. Subaru nuts at Circuit Motorsports swapped Mustang Cobra parts into this Subaru Justy and competed at our $2016 Challenge. Their best drag time was a 14.496, screaming through the lights with Ford V8 fury. The swap did wonders for handling, as they also placed first in the autocross segment, beating the competition by 0.8 seconds.
