Hi all,

This year at World Time Attack Challenge / Superlap, The Tuners Group is sponsoring 3 cars ...

The first car that we are sponsoring is Mark Berry's Advan R34 GT-R.

Without doubt the R34 is one of the leading Australian challengers in the top level Pro Class.

The next car that we are sponsoring is the Tomaszewski R35 GT-R.

The R35 is competing in the Clubsprint Class at World Time Attack Challenge, as well as in the NSW Supersprint Series (which the car is currently running second in).

The third car that we are sponsoring is an entry from Kakavas Racing.

Competing in the top level Pro Class, the Kakavas Racing Subaru WRX has been dubbed "The Gobstopper".

With an approximate weight of 1200 kg, and 400 kw at the wheels, The Gobstopper will be very exciting to see competing in the Pro Class.

Also as announced on our website a few weeks ago, Japanese D1 driver Toshiki Yoshioka will be competing in the drift event at WTAC.

Yoshioka is sponsored by Works Bell, as Works Bell's exclusive Australian distributor we have been working hard behind the scenes with Yoshioka to help him organise his visit.

Among other things, we organised the invite for Yoshioka to compete at Eastern Creek.

Yoshioka will be driving a 475hp 1JZ Toyota powered S13 at Eastern Creek.

In D1 in Japan this year, Yoshioka is driving a Mazda RX7 FD3S with Team Magic (pictured above).


SAY G'DAY AT EASTERN CREEK

As many of you know, we work extremely hard at The Tuners Group and very long hours, so our opportunities to attend JDMST events are very limited. So this weekend will be a great opportunity to meet some JDMST members face to face at the environment we like best - the racetrack.

We will be working closely with both Mark Berry's R34 and the Tomaszewski R35 over the weekend, so drop past the pits and say g'day.

Sweet write up and coverage!
Am curious to know where the WRX was? IIRC it wasn't there?

Hi Kory,

The crank broke in the Kakavas Pro class WRX on Thursday so he drove his Evo 9 in Clubsprint class.
