Pani Pastou and the LCE Racing team made us Cypriots proud by winning first place in the PRO category of the UK Time Attack Championship 2016.
At the last round of the event which took place at Snetterton Race Circuit last Sunday in Norwich Pani also won first place in the best presented car category for his Mitsubishi EVO.
The Championship took place over six rounds in which Pani won three of the rounds with lap times that broke existing lap records in two of the rounds.
The team is now considering whether to participate in the European Time Attack Championship.
Originating on the race tracks of Japan, Time Attack has risen to become one of the most significant and engaging motorsport phenomenon’s of our time. Captivating audiences and inspiring an entire generation of petrol heads from around the globe to set about nailing down the quickest lap on a given day, Time Attack defines the art of purposeful car modification by crowning aftermarket tuning champions and embracing the complete spectrum of tuning levels from a part-time racer to full blown record smashing circuit monsters.
The art of registering the quickest lap-time on circuit using a production based car with no power or upgrade limitations.The ultimate test of man and machine versus the clock, who will win? Running a car to the absolute limit and beyond – on the knife edge of engine power and response, reliability, mechanical grip, chassis set-up, aerodynamics and down force. Add that up and throw in a driver with no other expectation than to win by delivering the lap of their life while battling traffic of 50 other teams, all pushing to to do the same where every hundredth of a second counts.
Introduced in in 2006, the UK Time Attack Championship has grown into the largest and most professional Time Attack events in the world. In 2010 it was formally recognised by the Motorsport Association, the UK governing body of motorsport, as an official form of motorsport with specific rules and formats recognised as official regulations. Multiple classes are employed to give relevance and purpose to a wide variety of cars and drivers, from entry level street classes to Pro classes. Events take place at major race circuits in the UK with official timing supplied by TSL Timing, the race industry standard.
