    Wtac 2017

    It's still a ways off but everyones favourite Porsche 968 was out and about doing some testing yesterday. Hopefully they are coming back with a billet engine this year.

    It's good to see a car being tested months before the actual event. Cars that finish development with 2 days to spare and blow up on the first day kinda ruin the show for me.

    Same logic.

    but back on topic if im back from japan i will go to it this year i have missed out a couple years in a row due to japan trips. would like to see these guys do well as you said same car not being built last min like a lot of the other teams.

    after following the global time attack series there are some very fast cars out there but i doubt we will see them in Aust.

          There's been cars from NZ, UK, USA, Japan & Eastern Europe from memory. Seems pretty international and respectable to me.

          I wouldn't mind going down again this year.

            The European events allow full slicks, fucked if i know why WTAC flat out refuse to. There is more to the world than Japan in Time Attack these days. Allow slicks and you'd end up with some serious vehicles like Twin Turbo GT3 Porsches etc being built. They'd start to give LMP's and Formula cars a real run for their money.

            I know it's all about club level and derived from the Jap Tuner industry but really the Pro and Pro Am are way out of "club level" league nowadays, why not turn it into a full professional affair for those categories and let them run slicks.

              WTAC won't cave on the slicks or tube cars - ever. This year is shaping up to be bigger than ever. Great cars coming from all over the world, and some amazing stuff in the pipeline for demonstrations. I'd go just for one of the demo's that are planned.

              Don't miss it.

                Yokohama don't make slicks. That's why they don't have slicks.

                If a new tyre sponsor comes onboard then slicks might happen, but Yokohama pretty much created the entire event so I don't see that happening.

                  That's strange, have been using Yokohama slicks for over 20 years on 18 inch rims.

                  And can find A005 slicks for wheels from 14 to 20 inch diameter pretty easy through the Google's

                      Yoko do make slicks, i saw a pic of a Euro TA car the other day with Yoko logos on their slicks. So that isn't the reason. I think it's got something to do with the Jap guys refusing to run slicks as their domestic TA comp runs only rspecs. Or something...

                              Japan time attack is good because they use stock strut mounts and cars a pretty much based off a stock shell on semi's

                              Eurovission time attack is extreme. full slicks big power very fast lap times. (also done over several country's as a full championship so more "world championship based" then WTAC is) Next year is going to be a full 8 rounds The SVA EVO 6 broke the outright lap recored at Oulton Park with a 1:21 2nd place was 1:22 old outright lap record was F2 car at 1:24 so there getting very very quick.

                              MERICA is boring as hell to watch some nice car but nothing to WOW other then a handfull, seems to be a big gap between cars like top of the field and bottom no real middle class

                              Australia - WTAC good special event for a weekend but still see it as biggest budget wins and no real development more just hire aero guy, build billet engine, pay driver. the tire rule is to help yokohama because if you remember the top cars all ran hancook and then yokohama had a cry and became main sponsors.
