2013 European Time Attack Masters at Zandvoort
Just seven days after the conclusion of the 2013 UK Time Attack season, we find ourselves in the Netherlands for the first ever European Time Attack Masters. The idea is simple: Invite Time Attack cars from all around Europe to see who is fastest.
The venue for this first meeting is the twisting and technical Zandvoort circuit, on the West coast of the country right on the North Sea. Six cars from the UK Time Attack Championship are here to do battle against a range of cars and drivers, from local Dutch drivers with inside knowledge, to unknown quantities from as far as Finland and the Ukraine.
The cars are separated by just four classes – Four Wheel-Drive (4WD), Rear Wheel Drive (RWD), Front Wheel-Drive (FWD) and Naturally-Aspirated (NA). For this inaugural event, competitors can use any tyres they wish (including slicks) and pretty much anything goes – anti-lag, nitrous oxide injection, race fuel, the works. There aren’t any turbo restrictors here to slow the cars down After all, this isn’t Racing… this is Time Attack!
Wow! What a weekend!

For the first time our Showoff Imports team went over to Reisbrennen in Germany, an event with thousands of Japanese car enthusiasts! We were pleasantly surprised to see such an event this big with tuning on all levels. Our main goal was competing in Time Attack there. Reisbrennen took place at Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, a place far far away for us, but we made it
