World Time Attack Challenge 2011 Pro Class Controversies

by Eric Hsu

The Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC) 2011 was a massive success for the promoters, competitors, fans, sponsors, and vendors alike. Ian, Nathan, Kyle, the announcers, and the volunteers who all make up the World Time Attack Challenge and Superlap Australia successfully put on the best damn Time Attack event anywhere in the world to date! But there were some controversies and I attempt to clear them up here.

Sierra Sierra EVO Pre-WTAC 2011 Update

by Eric Hsu

The World Time Attack Challenge is coming up pretty fast next week on August 5 and 6. There have been some changes made to the EVO since winning the 2010 Source Interlink Superlap Battle final at Buttonwillow, but we've been pretty quiet about updates mostly because we've all been pretty busy concentrating on other things. Mike, Jet, Richard, and Ron have been able to squeeze in some work between the Ferrari races and I've been able to get up to Sierra Sierra a couple times for some engine testing in between my 900 other tasks and travels. The results are pretty cool I think considering what little time we've been able to spend on the EVO. Will the changes be enough to fend off the new domestic Australian and Japanese competitors? I sure as hell hope so. Pictures are inside after the jump.

Turbosmart Comp-Gate40 Wastegate

by Eric Hsu

A trick, tiny, high flowing, new wastegate from Turbosmart Australia. I used a pair on the Sierra Sierra EVO. Good enough for Sierra Sierra, plenty good for you (or those of us with normal cars). The tiny package size means you can fit this wastegate in almost any engine bay.

2010 Source Interlink Superlap Battle + Sierra Sierra = Domination

by Eric Hsu

It's been a long hard road to get to 1:41.0, but we've arrived. We are nowhere next to finished so you can expect even faster times in the near future, but for now winning the Source Interlink Superlap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway, CA two years in a row is pretty damn sweet.

Sierra Sierra EVO Update & BorgWarner EFR Turbos

by Eric Hsu

The last test at Buttonwillow was the straw that broke the camel's back both for the choice of turbocharger and the cylinder head sealing issues. You can see the despair (and my head scratching) in the picture above, but with any down there's always going to be an up. BorgWarner with their EFR turbo lineup and Cosworth with our turbo race engine experience are coming to the rescue.

Images of broken turbos, fire damage, and other cool stuff are just inside.

World Time Attack 2010 - Overseas Cars Have Arrived

by Eric Hsu

The cars from the USA and Japan have arrived in Australia safely. Look inside for some pics and some detailed pics of the RX-7s. The Superlap Australia World Time Attack event is surprisingly mainstream. The picture above is a billboard advertisement on one of the freeways between Eastern Creek International Raceway and Sydney. There are also plenty of printed ads and radio ads as well.

Nashville Redline Time Attack - Sunday 7/26/09

I remember why I don’t play roulette much in vegas any more (see yesterday’s post). You never know what’s going to happen sometimes. The Sierra Sierra EVO 8 had a rear differential mount failure in the first time attack session on Sunday that prevented Bomarito from completing a timed lap. The car was running solid all day Saturday and even cranked out a 1:01.3 in a Sunday morning practice session. The constant beating of the Nashville Super Speedway’s relatively rough infield to oval transitions and the massive G loads of the oval banking took it’s toll on the SSE EVO’s rear end and bent the front portion of the rear differential mount and cracked ...

Nashville Redline Time Attack - Saturday 7/25/09

I like it out here in Tennessee. The people are nicer than in LA (I’m not too friendly myself but nodbody’s perfect) and the landscape is super green everywhere which makes for a much nicer drive than say a drive to Buttonwillow in California where it’s nothing but brown nothingness. Its crazy to see younger guys with import cars talking about JDM this and Buddy Club that in a southern drawl. I never thought I’d see the day where building import cars has become this mainstream. I guess we can thank Nopi and the F&F movies for that.

Sierra Sierra EVO 8 Test 7/9/2009

A couple weeks ago I drove up to Buttonwillow to meet up with Sierra Sierra for a couple days of testing. What a lot of people forget is that the SSE EVO 8 is still a new car. Already the SSE EVO is being compared to some of the fastest, more highly developed cars, but its only competed in only one time attack and has only been on the track three times in it’s life. So while the guys at SSE built a good car to begin with (and Cosworth builds a good 4G63), no ground up built unibody race car rolls off the trailer without any teething issues. On top of that the goal was to make some significant improvements in the car’s handling and lap times. NOTE: this post is just an upda...
