The Annual World Time Attack Challenge is fast becoming one of the countries, if not toe world's premiere motorsport and performance automotive culture events. Now in its fourth year WTAC attracts enthusiasts and motorsport fans from around the globe who come to the event to see some of the world's most amazing time attack machines up close and in action.
The Pac Performance team headed out to the event on Friday and Saturday with the 20B Mazda6 SP race car on display as well as the merchandise trailer filled to the brim with the latest and greatest Pac apparel, performance parts and accessories.
As a celebration of 30 years of Mazda Motorsport history the legendary Le Mans-winning Mazda 767B was in attendance at this years event, on display as part of the Mazda stand as well as in action on the track running several demo laps through the lunch time period much to the delight of everyone in attendance!
Having the Pac Performance Mazda6 SP and the legendary 767B Le Mans car in the one spot, together certainly was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, with both teams equally blown-away by the awesomeness of these two amazing machines.
Coming from quite different motorsport disciplines, driver and owner of the 767B, Senji Hoshino (left) and his Head Engineer (right) jumped at the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Mazda6 SP
Although there was a language barrier between the teams there was no doubting the mutual admiration of the engineering and development that has gone into each car. Those huge smiles speaking a thousand words in all languages!
And then there's the sound of these two amazing machines...Pure rotary heaven!
Traveling to Australia for the WTAC event all the way from Malaysia, this group of guys were super excited to meet and greet with their favorite race team. What they didn't expect is to be offered a ride in Sam 'The Godfather' Sadek's RX3 street car; a treat itself worthy of the trip!
For all involved the 2014 WTAC was a blast and will certainly be hard to beat next year! It certainly won't be the last time the Pac performance team is involved and we're already looking forward to 2015's event!
