World Time Attack Challenge 2012 – Final Competition Day
By Martin Gonzales
The Australian teams kicked ass and took names on the first day of World Time Attack competition. Nemo Racing obliterated Cyber Evo's 2011 championship time and Tilton Racing was not far behind. As soon as day one was over the pit-chatter started circling around the track regarding what the top teams were up to in preparation for the second and final day of the World Time Attack. The late afternoon arrival of Cyber Evo, after being absent all of day one, only added to the anticipation for the final day of competition.
Read the rest of our 2012 WTAC Coverage:
|It was all hands on deck in the Cyber Evo pit late Friday afternoon, as they prepared for what was to be a dog fight for the Pro Class 2012 championship. The team and Tarzan were going to have to leave everything on the track if they were going to have a chance to catch Nemo.|
|Tilton Interiors' Garth Walden was confident of his team's late night efforts on Friday and was anxious to get on track to squeeze a couple more seconds out of their Evo IX.|
This is now the third year of the World Time Attack Challenge and just like last year we were amazed at the level of participation and fan involvement. No doubt we can attribute this to the Aussie love for motorsports, but tons of credit has to be given to the entire WTAC staff. They have created an atmosphere catering to Motorsport buffs worldwide. If you can't find something that interests you at WTAC, then you're simply not a gearhead. With a full time attack entry list, packed vendor row, historic racecar display, show-and-shine, drifting demos, and motorcycle stunt shows, there's something for everyone.
|Plenty to do in the paddock in between time attack sessions. The area behind the garages hosts a vendor row where fans can see the latests products being developed by the performance aftermarket. The Whiteline crew was not only displaying their R35 competing in the Clubsprint Class, but they also brought out their FR-S test mule. Whiteline has been doing extensive on-track parts testing for their FR-S/BRZ line up and the parts will be released very soon!|
|This blue R32 kinda reminded us of the ARK-Team America R32. It was heading towards the drift competition as we were leaving 😉|
