I hope to have a look at Oulton, curiosity has got the better of me.

I didn't make any events last year, but I did in both 2009 and 2008 (at Brands hatch), both of which were excellent days out.

I will definately try and make a round or two this year: especially as RCM are suppose to be back with their new toy...

It'll have to go some to beat the old one, Ollie said they may even bring it out of retirement for a run or two.

I have seen that video about 1000 times but I will still happily sit through it again. It's a phenomenal bit of engineering - and Olly isn't a bad driver either...

I understand the Gobstopper 2 won't be ready until this years Ten of the Best (at the earliest), so I don't know if they will run the GS1 car for the first few TA rounds then bring in the GS2 later in the year?

I think that's the plan, we had the original gobstopper on the stand at Autosport and it was in full working condition, still showcar clean as well.

Aside from gobstopper who are the other top time attack teams in British motorsport... I know the US has FXMD, Sierra Sierra, GST and the Scion... Japan has Garage Revolution, Cyber Evo, Panspeed, R Magic and the legendary HKS CTR230... but we never hear much about the euro teams stateside, any help would be appreciated

these reports from round 5 might help http://www.rpmvision.nl/en/features/...-caldwell-park and http://www.timeattack.co.uk/2011/pag...=1&s=241&p=241 rpm online also cover the dutch time attack

Thanks for the link... also is there a reason why we don't see more European time attack teams at the World Time Attack Challenge or even at Tsukuba in December, they all look quick in videos but it would be interesting to have a true comparisson in a head to head situation

no reason that i know of. It would be nice to be able to support someone closer to home at WTAC 2012.
some uk cars went to japan a couple of years ago http://www.driftworks.com/forum/othe...p-tsukuba.html also iirc the redbrick racing evo has been to ireland and holland to do a round

Time attack cars do not seem that quick to me, if you look at the times from the last round at Anglesey, the winner would have qualified 10th for North West Sports and Saloons race on the same circuit a month earlier!

Time Attack cars have tons of pace, now more so than ever... the FXMD NSX in particular is about as fast as a Daytona prototype... as you can see here ( http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1347746 ) they ran a 1:31 at Laguna Seca and about a 1:50 at Buttonwillow on inferior BF Goodrich tires... now they can run a 1:41.9 and have Yokohama A048 Japanese spec compound tires

I can never understand why they insist on running track day tyres
The cars are out and out race cars they should run slicks

It does seem a bit odd - some of the cars are hugely developed and are effectively crippled by their tyres. It must get to the stage where there's no point developing a car further as it would take it beyond what the tyres can handle. But those are the regs so that's what you have to go with
