In this episode of #GRIDLIFE Trackbattle, we follow Street and Track Mod frontrunners as they attempt to survive the unforgiving BRACKET BATTLE format. Can our drivers claim victory over their competition? Or will their dreams of Trackbattle victory be cut suddenly short?
Touge-style time attack, or "Bracket Battles", first debuted in the Gridlife scene last year at Speedring 2017. Now, the format has made its way to Trackbattle proper, and the results will be brutal.

Thanks for watching guys! Always such a fun process filming and editing these Trackbattle videos! Round 3 is already in the bag and waiting to be edited, and Round 4 will be at Road Atlanta once again, beginning August 24th! Hope to see you guys there!
I love watching time attack. I like all forms of racing, be it drag racing, rallying, time attack, Formula 1, etc. I hate seeing cars just sit there and be show cars. I want to see more people drive the piss out of their cars. When me and my parents go up to New Hampshire for the Kancamagus, I use all their 2011 Sonata 2.0T has. It’s a big, heavy sedan but has 274 horsepower and paddle shifters which make it a lot more fun than a normal car. I believe that you don’t need a cool sports car to have fun on a track, autocross, or even a fun windy road. I still have fun even with my automatic ‘99 Camry
This is mastercraft. G&G changing the game with these videos. Absolutely amazing. Not only does it showcase the cars and racing footage but also incorporates the story with the drivers and cars - cant say I've seen anything like it in Motorsport videography.
Amazing work as usual guys! This type of cinematography/filmmaking goes mostly unnoticed on YouTube and it's really disappointing. Everyone needs to share these long form type films because it really show's that YouTube has quality creators making content on the same level as the guys behind shows like Top Gear and now The Grand Tour! Keep up the great work and I look forward to your shows to come. YouTubeRed...take notes! these guys need a series!
Lol no.1 seeded, a supercharged M3 coupe, lost to a all motor, convertible M3. Wtff is that?! Amateur drivers v.s really amateur drivers?! I thought I seen it all with these grassroots racing. No wonder the REAL pros get paid the $$$$. This is boring ass to watch too.
Gears and Gasoline that's a great point. It didn't even occur to me that the DQ was a safety driven policy. It makes total sense though, people will tend to go 9/10ths instead of 11/10ths more often than not this way.
I agree that it's a good rule to have. It will help a lot of guys save a lot of money, dignity, and wrench time by DQ'ing off-tracks when running the heats. It's unfortunate sure, but I think it's a really good rule. Safety and smarts first! :)
You won't ever know how happy I am seeing another grid life post by yourselves. This should be a tv series. Always done in the most epic fashion but couldn't be done without the people who participate in the races. Great sportsmanship all round. Well done guys.
Great video. I organized my entire tool collection and garage while watching and listening. Serval times I had to rewind when an amazing car or great action caught my attention. There’s something beautiful about battle-scarred race cars. Reminds me of knights in armor doing battle.
In a Q&A video, Suzy says that she is the manager for Game Grumps.
Suzy is often around the office while the Grumps are recording. On her Tumblr, Suzy has stated that she has woken up to Jons screaming while he and Arin were recording many times. She appeared very briefly in Arins Gotta Poo, alongside Barry and Mimi, when Jon starts recording a video and walks out of the Grump Room. She makes her first vocal appearance in Pay Your Workers, after Arin tries to call Barry into the room, and she can be heard saying "Hes pooping." Suzy makes her first appearance as a player in the Mario Party 4 Steam Rolled series, playing alongside Arin, Barry and Ross. She has now become a recurring player on the Steam Rolled episodes, replacing Danny.
Arin has suggested several times that she would play The Lion King on Game Grumps while he and Jon commentate. On February 14th, 2014 she appeared alongside
Arin on two Valentine-themed episodes on Game Grumps, called Date Grumps. One of these was The Lion King, and the other was Super Paaauzzle Fighter II Turbo. On instagram Game Grumps posted a photo of Suzy with a text explaining that Suzy is working on a new fan showcase show on the Game Grumps channel. The name and format of the upcoming series is still unknown, but it is speculated that the show will be Suzy announcing and discussing new fan material, like fanart, Game Grumps animated and remixes, making the Game Grumps fan content more known. On June 25th, 2014 a new intro debuted on Steam Train with the first episode of Kings Quest VI on the shows one year anniversary. All the five grumps were featured in the intro which suggested that Suzy (along with Barry) will be featured in the series outside of Steam Rolled as well. This was confirmed by Ross on reddit, and Barry made his first offical appearance in Cliffhorse. Suzy made her official appearance two days later on Mount Your Friends.
Suzy and Barry have a series called Table Flip. The series involves them and certain guests playing various tabletop games, such as board games, card games, dice games, miniature wargames, tile-based games and other games that are normally played on a table or other flat surface. This is different from Game Grumps, Steam Train, and Grumpcade as they play video games.
