Registration for round one of “Baltic Time Attack Series” is now open

Four weeks before the debut event of the “Baltic Time Attack Series”, taking place on May 4 in Auto 24 Ring, the online registration has been opened. This racing series is unique in that it welcomes anyone, from professionals to drivers who have always wanted to see what it is like driving on a real race track. This is the only legal way to test your car in an environment where you will not be fined for speeding.

In order to compete in “Baltic Time Attack Series”, you do not need a race car or a complete set of racing equipment. All you need is a street legal vehicle, which can actually be used by multiple drivers within the same event. Even if you do not own a car, it is possible to rent one specifically for this series. If you are looking for rental options, please get in touch with the organizer. The same goes for helmets – if you do not have one, they will be available for rent at the event venue. Of course, any car must be in good shape mechanically, and will need to go through technical scrutineering before the event. To make sure that you are ready for the event, please go through the published documentation on the series website.

Drivers with street legal cars will be split into three classes based on the engine capacity – up to 2000 cm3, up to 3000 cm3 and 3000+ cm3. Please note that turbocharged or supercharged engines will have a coefficient added to the engine capacity, meaning that, for example, a two-litre turbodiesel engine will need to compete in the 3000 cm3 class.

Another novelty in the Baltic region is the “Supercar” class, where exclusive vehicles compete as part of the event. The series website has a list of cars eligible to compete in this class, but please note that it is being constantly updated and there might be cars that can compete in the class but have not yet been added.

Race cars will also be divided into three classes based on engine capacity – PRO2000, PRO3000 and “Unlimited”. The last of these will include cars with mid- or rear-mounted engines, as well as electric race cars.

Event organizers invite everyone to register soon, as there is a lot of interest in the event and there is a limited number of available spots.

More information about the event and the technical regulations are available on the series official website at www.timeattack.lv, as well as on social media – search for @baltictimeattack.

New motorsports series to debut in the Baltics – for both street legal and sports cars

In the summer of 2019, a new motorsports event – “Baltic Time Attack Series” – is set for its debut, bringing the popular and affordable time attack event format to the Baltics. The best part of the event is the fact that it welcomes fast driving enthusiasts in street legal vehicles, as well as professionals with cars built specifically for this type of racing. Events abroad show that time attack events are often the first step into motorsports for those who do not enjoy the unreasonably low speed limits and speed cameras on the roads. At the same time, this is a very serious event for experienced racers, giving everyone the chance to further improve both driving skills and the cars they compete in.

“Baltic Time Attack Series” 2019 season will consist of four events, taking place in the best prepared and safest circuits in the Baltics – “Auto24 Ring” in Parnu, Estonia (on May 4 and September 28), and Biķernieki track in Rīga, Latvia (on June 22 and July 28).

The goal in time attack racing is very simple – to set the fastest possible lap time during the day, which is then compared to what others have managed. At the end of the season, the overall series winners will also be determined. Each competitor will spend a total of fifty minutes on track – a ten-minute qualifying run followed by two twenty-minute sessions to set the quickest lap time.

Participants will be split into seven classes, based on the car they use. A single car can be used by multiple drivers. To make sure that the competitors have as clear a track as possible, everyone will be put into groups based on the lap time set in qualifying. Yes, there will be multiple cars on track at the same time, but they will not do a standing start from the grid or anything like that – the format is similar to what we see in F1 qualifying.

Time attack will also be exciting for the spectators, as there are no breaks between the runs. It is expected that in the fastest race car classes we will see cars built specifically for this series in addition to race cars already seen competing in Latvia. Another novelty in the Baltic region is the Supercar class, where exclusive vehicles compete as part of the event. To make it more exciting for both competitors and spectators, the event organizers are working on attracting drivers from abroad.
