The World Time Attack Challenge 2012 was indeed a blast! It’s their second year at Sydney Motorsport Park based in Eastern Creek. This 3.93km circuit, previously known as the Eastern Creek Raceway has gone through a $12m revamp, refreshing the entire venue with works including minor modifications to the circuit itself. In fact, the changes made the circuit even faster for drivers by up to 0.2 secs.
We’ll take you through the car scene at the track side where spectators generally spend most of their time during circuit events. We’ve lots to share and because there’s just too many great pictures, we’ll split them in parts as usual. Here’s what’s coming:
