World Time Attack Challenge: V-Sport Clubsprint Class of 2016

/World Time Attack Challenge: V-Sport Clubsprint Class of 2016

As the premier event for modified vehicles on and off the track, World Time Attack attracts entries and spectators from across the country and around the world – and while the first thought we associate with WTAC is extreme builds and mega aero, the heart of time attack lies in grassroots classes like the V-Sport Clubsprint Class of 2016. With a great deal more likeness to their production forms, Clubsprint is a restricted class of cars, intended to be more financially and competitively accessible than prestigious groups like the Pro and Open classes. It is also the largest class of world time attack, with 47 entries in 2016, from every state and even countries like Japan and Finland.

As the first day of official competition for World Time Attack, Friday saw drivers and teams pushing their build to the limits, and with higher temperatures expected for Saturday it could be the best chance they’d get to set a robust hot lap. Pushing the limits is the quickest way to find faults, as many discovered, including Ben Arnold in the Arnold’s Fruit Market R32. Ben sits in third place at the end of day one, albeit with a blown turbo and low hopes of completing any laps on Saturday.

Saturday brings the masses to the track, another day of prime weather, neck-to-neck lap times and last minute mods to get across the line ahead of the competition.
With 2015’s champion Daniel Meredith sitting pretty in first place, and his BYP Racing teammate Jaylen Nader poised to take silver, it would be a tight race to the finish for long-time competitors such as Jason ‘Badass’ Naidoo to claim a place on the podium.

And so, with another exciting year of World Time Attack done and dusted, V-Sport and the Clubsprint drivers can start planning for the 2017 event – will it be a hat trick for Daniel Meredith in the BYP Civic?
