WORLD TIME ATTACK CHALLENGE 2019 // A PRE-COVID19 EVENT

Although the recent COVID-19 pandemic appears to be on the decline in Australia, it certainly managed to leave it’s mark even within the car community. Your weekend cruises with the boys? No more. Couple of mates helping a friend fix his project car at his garage? Don’t even think about it. With easing rules, some of these experiences have come back from a hibernation but for one major car event which draws car enthusiasts across Australia to attend and takes months to plan, the damage was done. World Time Attack or WTAC would have to be one of the best motoring events each year in Australia. Held in Sydney generally in October, each year brings out some of the craziest and fastest cars from across the globe to compete around the Eastern Creek circuit across an array of different race classes.

Over the years it’s become much more than just circuit racing with added events like drifting, roll racing and of course the Show n Shine event. You’ll be hard pressed to not find something that takes your fancy if you have any remote interest in cars as the diversity in manufacturers, modification style and car application is unmatchable for a single event. So, while it’s a shame that such an event had to be pulled, the event organisers have promised an even bigger return in 2021 so for anyone who’s never attended WTAC before, be sure to check it out next year as I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with what you see at these shows. If you need more convincing, here’s a couple of the highlights from the 2019 event – enjoy!
