Welcome to Sebring Florida – For the first time in Redline history, the peeps that run “Redline Time Attack” are headed
to Florida. For those of you that are not familiar with “Time Attack” because your one of those that just like to go straight, let me enlighten you on a phenomenon
growing underneath your nose.
“Time Attack” : 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 at a large budget by highly respected tuning companies. Unlike other timed motorsport disciplines such as sprinting and hillclimbing, 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. Commonly, as cars consists of modified roadgoing cars, cars are required to wear tires authorized for road use and in all, drivers are allocated to three laps in a final event run; warm-up, timed and cool-down.Largely as a result of the popularity of the tuning industry, the name appears as a category for modified production vehicles at the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb utilizing Time Attack regulations which allows aftermarket modifications to the car and is split into two categories (2WD and 4WD).
