A great day of racing on Saturday for Lakeside International Raceway Round 4. Air was cool and sun was warming the bitumen and it was the best conditions seen at the event all year.

Terry Ayres had the biggest news as he finally got the highly sought after HOLY GRAIL time of a sub 60sec lap! Well done mate, we're all super proud of you. Wear that sticker with pride because you truly earned.

Hannah Taylor also beat her old PB by over half a second and made it into reaching distance of the Holy Grail with a 60.8.

Jason Keen followed Hannah into the 60sec bracket in the Monkeen Motorsport STi, also getting a 60.8 and improving by half a second thanks to the assistance given by fellow club member Malcolm Clark.

Mike Wittkopp was able to get a 62.7 which he was very pleased with. Matthew Martin smashed his old PB by 1.2secs and got a 63.6.

Great job by all, and we'll be seeing them at the next round of Time Attack held at Queensland Raceway on the 27th of August.

Based in the heart of Brisbane, the Cootha Classic makes motorsport easily accessible to local residents.

At the core of the event, it is a celebration of motorsport, but there is so much more to it. With boutique food stalls, live entertainment, trade exhibitors, music, interactive displays and celebrity drivers complimenting the non-stop on track action.

The Club will be well represented with approximately 10 cars on show in the display area from the older GC8's to the current VA's, but all will be beautifully presented to represent the iconic WRX brand.

To go along with the looks, the Club will also be showing off some of its muscle with at least three cars already securing their spots.


Representing Monkeen Motorsport will be Club President Jason Keen in his STi built by John French Motors. "The Monkeen Motorsports '06 STi "Cindy" has been built as my daily car that regularly drives to the race track, wins its class, and drives home ready for normal weekly duties. It has been built to be a reliable race car for the road"


The club is represented in the Modified class by Hannah Taylor in her MY02 WRX. Hannah is a regular at Queensland Racetracks and runs extremely well in the Queensland Time Attack series.


Running in the Ultimate class, Stephen Faulks and the Bitten Motorsport STi will be pushing it all to the limit for outright honors. "I’ll be up against GTs and some other high performance cars, so it’ll be interesting to see how I go against those guys. The historic and special vehicle classes will be something to keep en eye out for as well – they’re always awesome.”

Daniel Callow will also be representing the Club in his recently completed Car Mods Australia Wide Body STi.

Treat yourself to a great father's day weekend on the 5th September and head to the local hill climb and enjoy all the sites, tastes and racing.

WTAC 2013 is coming fast - BE THERE!

.Well with World Time Attack Challenge 2013 only weeks away, Nev Scott and Steve Faulks are in the final stages of preparation and testing.

Both cars are currently having some last minute changes made, but are well on track to be ready in time.

Nev pilots the Car Mods Australia WRX which is competing in the hotly contested Open Class. The brightly coloured GC8 is not all about the looks; it runs an EJ20 blocked stroked to 2.1l, Custom fuel system, Dailey Engineering dry sump, TSSFAB F&R subframes and arms, Process West Intake, V-Mount and fuel rails, KAPS 6 speed sequential, Front-Alcon Monobloc 6 piston calipers W/355×34 rotors , Rear-STI brembo 2 piston calipers and 300mm rotors, Custom diffs, Custom built WRC spec cage, MoTeC M800 ECU, MoTeC CDL dash, fibreglass doors and lexan windows along with some trick custom aero.

All this adds up to a car that should be right on the weight limit and have over 450hp at the wheels.

Nev backs up from WTAC 2012 where he blitzed the Club Sprint class to come away with a well deserved win.

“We are returning in 2013 with one clear goal in mind. To win. Simple as that.” said Nev “We haven’t made the step up from Clubsprint to Open just to make up numbers. Last year we were very focused on our goal and as the record books show we achieved it. Our time from last year was even hard to believe at first for us but we know from the data there was still a lot more left in the car last year.”

Steve is the owner/driver of the Fulcrum Performance STi which is returning to Club Sprint class again, with the intention of bettering his 7th last year.

While a little more subtle than the Car Mods WRX, the Fulcrum Performance STi still hides some nice looking toys including a custom built NA Autosport 2.5l block with all the bits you would expect in a race car. Matched with the complete Fulcrum Performance package including Tein Super Racing N1’s, EDFC Active, entire SuperPro catalogue all help it go around corners. Performance Frictions Mono Block callipers with 355mm front rotors and standard rear callipers with Performance Friction pads all help pull the rather heavy MY05 STi up. Similarly to the Car Mods WRX, there is a full array of Motec ECU, Diff controller and dash.

With having to run standard doors and windows the Fulcrum Performance STi still tips the scales at about 1400kg and has about 420hp which is the main difference between Club Sprint and Open.

Steve said “With the entry list now published I think that the class is going to be very tight and offer great competition with the likes of Dan Farquhar, Jason Naidoo and Darrin Morrice all putting in very respectable appearances at the Vic Time Attack and the NSW Time Attack and not to mention Jason Wright being a home town boy with a lot of laps and a lot of power behind him. I am hoping the Fulcrum Performance STi will have the package on the day to keep these boys honest.”

The WRX Club of Queensland wishes Nev and Steve all the best for the 18th and 19th of October.

More information about the event can be found on Click Here and remember, they have the unique policy of fully open pits, so come by and say hi to Nev and Steve and check out their Time Attack race cars.
