As many of you know, Mike Skeen is a top professional racing driver that has worked with Forged on a number of projects over the year. You may recall Mike piloted the Forged GT-R to a record 1:24 laptime at Road Atlanta last year. Forged Performance would like to congratulate him on taking 1st place in the Open Class at the 2014 Pikes Peak hill climb. View the full run of the 2014 Pikes Peak Challenge Open winner, Mike Skeen, in the Hawk Performance/CRP Racing GT-R. In addition to the class win, this run of 9:55.471 earned Rookie of the Year and 5th place overall.
For those that missed our June Road Atlanta event with Chin Motorsports, have a look at some of the photos from this very fun event. Despite track temperatures close to 100F, the sold out event didn’t disappoint. Forged tuned cars making lap after lap in some of the hottest weather of the year is a very satisfying feeling. Hope to see you all again soon.

With warmer weather in full swing here in the Atlanta area, June’s C&O event is the unofficial start of the summer car season. Massive turnout as usually with over 1200 cars spilling out of the Dearfield parking lot. This is a great family friendly event and we encourage everyone to attend. Great cars, great people, and quite a few pets too. We hope you enjoy some of the moments we captured during the event.
