Here are some pics from WTAC this year, there was about a hundred cars competing, let me know if you want any info on them

This is the MCA suspension S13 "Hammerhead" driven by Earl Bamber (NZ)
Makes about 760hp, and was second overall, and fastest 2WD





Here it is without the nose on, that is Earl speaking to Barry Lock, Ex-McLaren Aerodyamist, he designed to aero for it



This is the Evo 9 they call "Nemo" it won last year, but only managed 3rd overall this time




The car Tarzan was driving, the Esprit NSX, very new car in development, and they were struggling for grip




One of the cars that Nob Taniguchi (Prob the most successful driver in Japan at the moment) was driving, the Top Fuel S2000, not sure on power, but at least 650hp



And the other car he drove was the RE Ameniya RX7, this was a 3 rotor turbo, sounded like a GP car at full revs!




This was the winning car, the Tilton Evo 9, this had just arrived back from Voltex in Japan where they spent a reported 30,000 pounds on wind tunnel aero on it!



Under Suzuki's S15, this finish 4th overall for the second year running, runs about 800hp out of the little SR20, his is the lap record holder for Tsukuba now, beating the long held HKS R230 car



Prob my favorite car (as it almost could still be street car) was the S15 of the Suttons, this was beautifully build, but still brand new, so some development yet to be done with it





This is Andrew Brilliant fro USA, Mitzi Eclipse, FWD class, they had to replace/repair the gearbox on the first day, so we didn't really get to see the full potential on this car, Andrew did the aero on the Aussie built Nemo Evo.




Quite possibly the noisiest car there, the 2.6lt NA Honda Civic "Mighty Mouse"



I quite liked this thing, Dihatsu Charade with a Honda turbo motor.....:chuckle:




Not a ton of Scooby's there, but this on was fast



One of the many GTRs there, none were running in the Pro Class, but a GTR wine the Open Class (not this one, I failed to get a photo of Steve's winning Car....he was only a couple of seconds off the lower Pro Cars with basic aero and an H Pattern box)
This particular blue one dud well, and sounded amazing!



I had to get some photos of this RX8 that is still being built, 4 Rotor PP NA, with the best looking intake I've seen on a non works car!





And a bit more for you Rotor Heads, this is the first in the world, NZ built PPRE 6 Rotor PP NA (Yes 6!!!). It sounded insane! Makes about 900hp, and Mad Mike Whiddett did some demo runs down the straight, he was sawing at the wheel when he flew past me, and the guy standing next to me said "he's trying to drift it", no, he was trying to keep it in a straight line!




This is just a small few of the hundreds of photos I took, if there is anything in particular you think I might have got, let me know.:wavey:

excellent photo's and some amazing cars.

Did you get any lower shots with bumpers off so we can see how they've secured splitters etc?

Thanks for the pictures are there any sound clips of the 6 rotor running?
Sorry, no, I only had a camera.

I did find out however that the Crankshaft that was made for it is five piece!

Thanks so much for sharing all this:)

Holy crap those cars are so advanced it makes our time attack cars seem like daily drivers!

Don't suppose you have any videos you can share??

I got PMs wanting some picks of the suspension on Nissans....was hard to get them, the front of the garages as supposed to be off limits

Here is the MCA S15's front


And here is it's flat carbon belly


This is Danh's R32 GTR with the front off, looks very similar to the R32 that Ark (Team America) were building.


I have another SD card that I haven't looked at yet, there maybe more on there.
Sorry I didn't get any video, look up World Time Attack on Facebook.....there should be some on there.
