The Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge is the pinnacle of tin-top lap-timed racing — and to make sure you don’t miss it, we’ve got the live-stream right here!

The event features the performance makes and models usually found at the race circuit, but with drag car–like horsepower, and more downforce than the average Indy car.

Two very well-known New Zealanders are taking part in the action this year — Kat Benson and Andy Duffin. We’re confident in our Kiwi representatives and excited to see how the overseas experience develops their skills in local competition back here in New Zealand in their respective race series.

Racing begins at 11am, so check out the live-stream below and get amongst the action!

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
