What a morning it was at day two of the Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge. After breaking the record on day one of the event, Tim Slade in the MCA Suspension ‘Hammerhead’ has hammered the record again with a 1:22.1920!

Event organizer Ian Baker was in the pits when the action went down, congratulating team members on their impressive run. To give you an idea of just how fast that lap time is, an A1GP car runs a 1:19 around this same circuit. 

It's only early in the day though, and Under Suzuki has mentioned that he wants to run a 1:19, so we'll see what the rest of the day brings! 

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.
