We love Status Racing's dedication to quality, so it seems natural that we've decided to partner with them. We'll be carrying their line of FIA approved racing buckets and FIA approved racing harnesses. The fit and quality of these seats are amazing and surprisingly comfortable for a racing bucket. Expect to see these buckets/harnesses racing in our SPEED World Challenge car and Time Attack car. I'll try and get a pic of the new harnesses they're offering asap.
The guys at Jim Russell have a great racing program. Given this, it was an honor when they asked us to tune their formula 3 race cars. We spent a great deal of time on the dyno perfecting the tune for these amazing machines, so it's always a joy to see them running at the race track. Take a look at what they can do.

This footage was taken by Jamie @ WORKS in our 350whp evo X with stock injectors. The camera used was a GoPro wide angle motorsports camera. Even with the sunset and a lack of ambient light, you can tell this camera is very capable of getting great video. Again, this is one of many videos to come, so stay tuned!
Found this little gem hidden away at work yesterday, so I thought I'd share it with you guys. It's kind of cool to watch because you can see how the G's and general vibrations of a race car effect a video camera using tape. I played with the RGB Balance on the video to make it slightly darker and a little more blue. let me know what you think.

WORKS is proud to announce their partnership with GoPro Camera. GoPro Camera's involvement in motorsports exemplifies the WORKS mantra of Passion, Precision, Performance. We've been playing around with these cameras at the shop and the quality is impeccable. WORKS will be using these little bad boys on all their race cars as well as tune the official GoPro Evo X. I should have some video posted shortly, so keep on the look out!

Over the years WORKS has competed in a lot of events and taken home quite a few trophies, but not too many people know the behind the scenes action. Hopefully this blog will help to enlighten you guys. We're usually busy testing new products on the race track, but with luck, this blog should be updated weekly. '09 is going to be a really exciting year for us at WORKS, so make sure to check in often!
