While the blistering heat from our own TIMETOATTACK at Sepang International Circuit has yet to wear off, another urgent assignment called us in again to SIC, but this time this is not Sepang. Covering Team Aylezo Motorsport’s progress in the 2013 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia Series, the first race takes us all the way behind the Bamboo Curtains of Shanghai International Circuit. So with a quick prep and very little rest, the thousand-kilometer journey to the People’s Republic of China begins. Read the rest of this entry »
Over at TIMETOATTACK, we never stop receiving the best and most impressive entries every year with every single one of them being more than ready to grab the throne of being Sepang’s fastest man. The journey to the top is nothing close to being easy, but having the right tool for the job is a good start. And the most preferred weapon is undoubtedly the JDMs; not only for their relatively affordable cost compared to other cars, but also for the immense power that comes with it.
TIMETOATTACK is finally back to rock the Sepang International Circuit for its third year, and the years passed had definitely made it a bigger and better event for automotive enthusiasts in Malaysia. Although the TIMETOATTACK is widely known as an event where the fastest machines in the region congregate to Sepang and shave every single millisecond they encounter with all their might, we at Zerotohundred also aim to celebrate the current happenings of the autoworld and adding a bit of our own twist.
Proven to be the crowd’s favourite, we brought the main straights of Sepang International Circuit into life with the howling sounds of angry horses and screeching tires through the TTA Drag Attack. With a massive fleet of GT-Rs from ATS Automobile and hardcore supercars like the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale and Lamborghini’s Aventador LP 700-4 joining in the mayhem, you do not need to travel all the way to Russia to experience an all-out supercar drag race.
Again bringing a whiff of fresh air to TIMETOATTACK is the new Run What You Brung Car Park Autocross, which is basically what it is as said on the package. Whether you drive a full-on Lotus Elise or just a normal four-door Civic sedan, you will never look at the car park the same way ever again as they managed to bring fun and excitement with just the bare necessities!
Since the EPICSTANCE proved to be a huge success back in 2012, it is back again this year to give the slammed and stretched community a place they could call home and share their most outrageous fitment and stance they could fit on their rides. From the local MyVis to Wiras, going all the way to the Mercs and Bimmers, this new crowd-puller was being livened-up with the Limbo Rock Challenge! So how low can your slammed car go?
But just when we thought we have seen it all, the TIMETOATTACK still keeps the best for the last as we are seeing more time attackers emerging into the scene, all showing great potential in being the next big thing in the scene. Although new cars like Pitworks’ mean-looking Nissan 200SX has a lot of potential in grabbing the title of the fastest machine around Sepang, champions like ST Wangan’s Evo and Neverland’s impressive car line-up will not be letting it go without a fight.
And of course, this opening round for 2013 will not be a success if it is not for the support poured down from our great fans and the generous sponsors; a big thank you to all of you! Do stick around as we will be bringing you more goodies to all of the folks at home and the ones that matter the most, the fastest men of this Round 1!
Pentagon Racing, based in Kuala Lumpur, is one of Malaysia’s most recognized tuning house for anything Honda. Namely the K20A powered Type-Rs. Setting highly respectable lap times and leaving their mark at top Malaysian circuit events has brought them into the spotlight.
Being one of the must-show faces at TIMETOATTACK, we met up with Chris at Honda-specialist’s headquarters, and had a little chat about their progress in the pursuit for that magical lap time. It is to our amazement though that the car that used to represent Pentagon (driven by Chris) during the 2012 round had already changed hands earlier this year.
Aside from the cute little Cygnet, Aston Martin is well known for their luxurious Gran Tourers housing extra-large V12s, ferrying the occupants through long distances in great speeds. And also with a very active motorsport division that enters almost every single type of race available in Europe, it is hard to associate Aston Martin with saving the environment, until now.
The Round 2 for the 2013 Super GT is not like any other rounds as this is where the 500km Fuji GT race takes place at the Fuji Speedway. With the participants having to complete 110 laps around the 4.563km circuit, the battle saw a fierce competition between four Lexus SC430 rushing for supremacy in the GT500 class.
Akio Toyoda has a deep passion in motorsports, and despite already making his way to the top chain of Toyota Motor Corporation’s management, that is no excuse for him to put it away. And for that, it is not much of a surprise that later this month the CEO of the world’s largest automaker will be making an appearance as a driver in the Nurburgring 24-hour race.
Peugeot’s Pikes Peak machine is a beast. Weighing only 875kg, they could fully utilize the 875-horsepower from the mid-mounted V6 and possibly reach the peak before the 10-minute barrier. But while all heads are towards this stealthy hill climber, Nobuhiro Tajima is not going to sit back and do nothing about it.
Set to pave a new direction in motorsports, the FIA Formula E racing series had caught a lot of attention around the world. With countries like Italy, China, Britain and even Malaysia already signing up to host the race which will tour the globe in 2014, this all-electric race might just be the next big thing in the annual motorsports calendar.
Back in 1976, the Nordschleife saw a terrible tragedy where Niki Lauda got into a fiery accident that almost got him killed. Since then, the Green Hell was deemed too dangerous for the high-speed Formula 1 racing that it was taken off from the calendar soon after. That however did not spell the end for these death-defying cars screaming across the legendary circuit as Nick Heinfeld took a BMW Sauber and went around it in 2007, but that is not the last of it.
