After the victory in the Dutch TOYO TIRES TIME ATTACK behind the wheel of Misha Charoudin’s Subaru Impreza made by Jeroentje.nl Tuning and EMS-Tuning, the famous Russian racer Inessa Tushkanova got invited to participate in the WORLD TIME ATTACK CHALLENGE SYDNEY under the full support of Nulon Oils.
Time attack (alternatively known as Super Lap or Tuner Battles) originated in Japan when the tuning media organized the event on race circuits such as Tsukuba Circuit, where it commonly occurs, as a proving ground for street tuned cars built with a large budget by tuning result of the quick rise in popularity, tuners developed purpose built cars for the competition. The Time Attack series became widely known in a short amount of time and soon various tuning shops began to build and prepare cars purely for these events. Today Time Attack is known all around the world.
Unlike other timed motorsport disciplines, the car is required to start off under full rolling start conditions following a warm up lap where they will have to accelerate out as fast as possible to determine how fast they enter their timed lap. Moreover, this nearly eliminates the aspect of car contact, as Firstly she will share the drive of the Pulse Racing Evo 9 with rally legend Steve Glenney in the Pro Class. Secondly you will see her with another Australian rally legend Rick Bates in the V-S sport Evo X. Next up you can see her sharing a drive in the Topstage Composites S14 with former Australian Karting and Sports Sedan champion James Sera and finally she will be accompanying the BPG Racing father and son team of Craig and Adam Burgess in their crazy fast GTR.
Australian’s Time Attack World Cup will be held in Sydney on October 17-18. Every year this show has a huge number of spectators, fans and participants. Not all the cars at the World Time Attack Challenge are built to go fast round corners. Some have been built purely for spectators viewing pleasure – one of the biggest outdoor car shows in the country. This year, organizers are expecting close to 400 cars on display.
