This year’s Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge is set to break all the records. A new track lap record has been set every year since the event’s inception in 2008, and it looks like 2013 will be no different.
The reigning champions – the Queensland-based Nemo Racing team (with driver Warren Luff), will be fronting up with a more powerful and faster incarnation of their 2012 winning car and are ready to break the lap record once again.
However, the local heroes will face their fiercest competition yet, with highly-competitive local entries plus international stars from Japan, USA and even Cyprus lining up to challenge them – and the clock – for the coveted World Time Attack title.
Held over two action-packed days, from Friday October 18 through to Saturday October 19 at the Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek, the Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge is a true motorsport festival with a number of supporting events taking place on and off the track:
• Turbosmart Flying 500 – a 500m rolling start race featuring Australia’s fastest tuner cars.
• Motul Turbo Legends – see the cars that shaped the history of Australian motorsport back in the 80s and the 90s. Far from being extinct, these fire-breathing monsters are alive and well and just have to be seen in a full flight to be appreciated!
• Tectaloy International Drift Challenge – as soon as the sun goes down, the show moves to the South Circuit for a drifting spectacular under lights, featuring the very best drifters from Australia, New Zealand, Scotland and Japan.
• A Freestyle BMX Show, Miss Time Attack contest, and the biggest outdoor Show’n’Shine display in the country
The records may keep falling at the Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge, but this year’s event is guaranteed to reach all-new heights.
