On Sunday the first Time-attack in the Netherlands took place, on the circuit of Zandvoort. The competition covered three categories. Semi-pro street (amateur driver w/street car), pro street (pro driver w/street legal car), and pro non-street.
I competed in Pro street. with the my daily driven WRX. Vf-22, RCE springs, Wilwood brakes, and Pirelli Corsa semi-slicks are the noteworthy mods.
Notable competitors included the Donkervoort which holds the Nurburgring lap record. A 650hp R34 skyline driven by Francesco Pastorelli, Nikki Pastorelli (champ car driver) was driving a Opel GT (pontiac Solstice), several Porsche GT3 RS's, a 500hp Evo 6, and several more Donkervoorts (essentially 200+hp Caterhams) and Skylines.
My best lap was a 2:09.4 which put me 23rd in class. The Nurburgring Donkervoort ran a 1:55. I was within a second of Pastorelli in the Opel, and beat most of the skylines as well as a GT3. So not too bad of a day.
The EVO6 with an amateur driver did amazingly well covering the track in a hair over 2 flat. And considering he had only seen the track during warmups it was a really good showing.
Overall I was around 28th out of nearly 100 cars, and if I would have competed in semi-pro I probably would have made top5. Didn't have time to take too many pictures, but i did find one...
