    My Timeattack results

    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...

    Very nice showing - the car looks great too, very mean looking. It sounds like that was a lot of fun!

    Very nicely done. Could you post a more detailed list of your suspension mods?

    My suspension setup is nothing particularly special.

    STi v.7 Shocks
    RCE lowering camber plates
    RCE Springs
    Group-n rear top hats
    17" wheels wrapped in Pirelli Corsa semi-slicks (215/45)

    Alignment:
    Slight toe in front
    2.4 degrees camber
    3.5 degrees caster
    0 toe in rear

    Definitely still a lot to be won suspension wise.

    That is a nice setup. I run something very similar for AutoX.

    My only difference is I have Koni Inserts and JDM STi springs.

    What are you running for swaybars?
