Time Attack: Motor racing distilled down to its purest form.
Time Attack is about turning up to a track and attacking it for the quickest time you can achieve from your car.
A time attack is a type of motorsport where the race cars compete against a clock, and not directly against each other. Each car is timed through a circuit of the track.
It is, in its simplicity, all about speed. There is no qualifying, no races and very few rules as drivers, engine tuners, suspension experts and aerodynamic gurus compete to see who can make the fastest car across a single lap.
Time attack events began in Japan in the mid-1960s. They have since spread around the world including right here in Malaysia.
