What is Time Attack ......

time attack is a type of motorsport where the race cars compete against a clock. Each car is timed through one circuit of the track. The competitors run together, in classes and are on circuit simultaneously. The person that posts the fastest time in the 15 or 20 minute timed session wins, which is the same scenario as the qualifying session for F1.

Time Attack Competition Car Classes

Time Attack is about turning up to a track and attacking it for the quickest time you can achieve from your car. It is open to all manufacturers and drive train layouts so whether its a standard front wheel drive Vauxhall to a four wheel drive Audi, we have a class suitable for varying degrees of tuning and modification.

The classing system is designed to roughly categorise cars which are of similar layout, power, modification and most importantly speed and time around a track in order to create competitive classing and a safe environment for those in each class. The cars are categorise by the modifications, what they are, what potential they have and how far removed from a standard car they are which can unusual and after 9 years of categorising a sport which is all about time, not winning a race – it is the only way to provide the classing for the cars that compete. There are many varied cars and drivers but all have the same challenge – how to kill the clock and nail down the quickest time possible.

The chart on the right hand side provides a quick reference guide that briefly describes the 2015 class structure.
