Here is some video footage and a short write up of Redbrick Racing performing some tests on Yokohama A050 Tires that they plan to run on in Australia... lap times were around 1.40

Any word on the Fernandez Motorsport Falcon Ute this year? I've been trying to find information on whether or not it's going to be competing this year and I've had no luck.

Hopefully we will see more teams from different countries enter this year. Redbrick is a start, but there's a few crazy beasts on the continent I'd love to see.

I would love to see more european cars in WTAC but with final rounds around that time and the time the car will be tied up in transporting cars to and from australia. I don't see it happening too often unfortunately.

I thought it had been mostly completed just in time for last year's competition but still had a few kinks, hopefully they will be able to compete this year

Aa far as uk teams go, I wouldn't mind seeing this carbon bodied elise http://speedhunters.com/archive/2010...tus-elise.aspx and Roger Clark's monsters would be great to watch as well... same goes for the US teams if they ever allow full slicks I'm sure teams like FXMD and GST would be more inclined to participate

however there are still other great competitors yet to be officially announced like Project Nemo Racing

Nemo Racing reported that the along with their own Evo, the Tilton Interiors Evo, Red Brick Racing Evo and will be competing in Australia this summer... they also hinted that considering how the Cyber Evo came out of retirement to comlete in 2011, there is a chance they may return yet again in 2012

With Cyber Evo returning they would have to be favorites to repeat this year to make it three in a row... hopefully this time with Cosworth power

Some interesting news that Taniguchi will be driving for team Top Fuel... maybe he can challenge Yamada for that top spot

Looks like the Top Fuel S2000 has bumped their power up to 712ps while the RE Amemiya Hurricane is busy attempting to adapt many of it's Super GT parts to the RX7... the Cyber Evo appears to have switched to a Haltech ECU and now puts out 706 hp

before last years competition Mark Berry's E85 fueled R34 had gained 80 kg (176lbs) but was still able to go 2.2s fast mainly due to aero developments...

In 2010 1.34:109 7th place at Eastern Creek
In 2011 1.31:905 6th place at Eastern Creek

for this year they have found an extra 70 kw to bring their horsepower back up to around 800hp with a new turbo from Precision in place of the EFR unit

Nob Taniguchi will be attending this year's time attack as the driver for both the Top Fuel S2000 and the RE Amemiya Hurrican 7... he set the Team Top Fuel's fastest time around Tsukuba and he has prior experience with RE Amemiya during his time in Super GT and should have no problem jumping into the Hurrican 7 car which is said to have many parts adapted from the Super GT car

interestingly when Cyber Evo split with voltex and unlimited works, they went on to work with Team Top Fuel while Garage HRS and C-West have filled their places on the Cyber Evo expected to return this summer

once he gets acclimated to the track layout he should be able to set some decent lap times... he remains confident he can come away with the fastest time for a RWD car but with serious competition like the Cyber Evo, Team American and Nemo you would expect all three of them to beat the RWD cars to the podium

Official Press Release from WTAC website
http://www.worldtimeattack.com/index...d-time-attack/

Taniguchi's record at Tsukuba in the HKS CT230R still stands today but in all likelihood with good weather, and clear traffic Under Suzuki, Cyber Evo or Garage Revolution should be able to surpass it now

Panspeed, Cyber Evo, Nemo and Team America have yet to be officially announced but pictures of their builds can be found on various websites
