What is Time Attack?
“Time Attack, also known as Superlap originated in Japan in the 1980s as a proving ground for street-tuned cars built by highly respected tuning companies. With a quick rise in popularity, the event became well-known and tuner shops started developing race cars purpose-built for the event. Within a short period of time the Time Attack format has spread throughout the world, with the US, UK, New Zealand and Australia all hosting their own national events.
Superlap format is not unlike a qualifying lap in traditional motorsport with competitors racing against the clock with the fastest single lap collecting the prize. The most exciting thing about this type of racing is the fact that the rules are limited almost purely to the safety aspects meaning the vehicles can have almost unlimited modifications making for some seriously spectacular on track action.”
Time Attack is about challenging oneself, man and machine against the clock. It’s about setting new personal bests and records. It doesn’t matter if you start with a Honda Civic or a Porsche 911, build it, break it, go out, have some fun and set those lap times, as they will do the talking for you.

Time Attack Tasmania uses the rulebook from World Time Attack Challenge for 3 of it’s 4 classes, and only available to tin tops.
Street follows Clubsprint, anything from your “off the showroom floor” vehicles to your mildly modded and club day racer on a street tyre such as a Yokohama AD08 or Hankook RS4.
Club is the same as Street, but allows the use of Semi Slick tyres that would normally be found on track focused weapons, such as the Yokohama A050 and Dunlop DZ03G
Modified follows Open, this is where you will find wildly modified track toys, that only live on the tarmac. Rollcage and safety apparel is a must.
Unlimited follows Pro and Pro Am, this is where the wildest of monsters live. Expect records to tumble, we allow slicks here
Regulations will be released shortly defining each class.
For your safety, any vehicle quicker than a 59.5 will require a 6-point roll cage, frontal head restraint and appropriate safety equipment.
If your vehicle does not fit into one of our classes, and you would like to enter, please contact us.
