Time Attack Round 1
Get ready to see some of the UK’s most spectacular, highly tuned performance cars on circuit.
Time Attack has grown into the must see track event of the year, featuring a wide range of machinery, from road-going trackday cars, right through to purpose-built, 1000hp+ monsters.
Not only will you get to see these cars on the circuit, but you’ll also you get the chance to get up close and personal in the paddock. From looking under the bonnet to talking to the drivers, Time Attack is – and always will be – the most accessible form of motorsport on the planet.
Originating on the race tracks of Japan, Time Attack has risen to become one of the most significant and engaging motorsport phenomenon’s of our time. Captivating audiences and inspiring an entire generation of petrol heads from around the globe to set about nailing down the quickest lap on a given day. Time Attack defines the art of purposeful car modification by crowning after market tuning champions and embracing the complete spectrum of tuning levels from a part-time racer to full blown record smashing circuit monsters.
The art of registering the quickest lap-time on circuit using a production based car with no power or upgrade limitations.The ultimate test of man and machine versus the clock, who will win? Running a car to the absolute limit and beyond – on the knife edge of engine power and response, reliability, mechanical grip, chassis set-up, aerodynamics and down force. Add that up and throw in a driver with no other expectation than to win by delivering the lap of their life while battling traffic of 50 other teams, all pushing to to do the same where every hundredth of a second counts.
To ensure the successful and relevant entry of cars and teams, our classing system has evolved into specific categories that are suitable to recognise differing levels of car, potential lap-times, modification and drive-line. This classing system encourages vehicles from ‘street spec’ to purpose built world class racing spec machines. Throughout the season lap-times are monitored and where necessary adjustments are made to ensure fair competition in all classes is respected, the quicker the cars go the further up the classing field they progress each season.
