In the United Kingdom, Time Attack is the only ‘new’ motorsport to be given official recognition by the MSA (Motor Sport Authority) in over 40 years. I think we can all agree that is an achievement in it’s own right! The Time Attack UK events really are packed with some of the finest highly modified production vehicles from Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions to Subaru Imprezas to R35 Nissan GTRs and many more. Lest we not forget the people that make it happen, the people that drive the vehicles and the women that promote the sponsors, they all add to that feel good factor which I had not experienced in the UK for a long time until I began coming to these events.
In the middle of 2011, I was invited to come and experience the UK Time Attack series as a guest by one of the organisers, Glen Horncastle. I managed to make it down to the last two events of the season, held at the Anglesey and Snetterton race circuits. I took along with me a basic kit layout of a Canon 5D and 7D and some support equipment just to capture what I experienced.
These events were two of the best weekends of 2011 for me. The series as a whole is fantastic and has such a good vibe, which is something I haven’t experienced in the UK for quite a while. I hope you enjoy what I have managed to capture!
