Forged Performance 2010 Time Attack Series - Rounds 1 & 2

Hey guys, I know we are not really big on the Ferrari forums. But we are throwing a really fun event and trying to gather some more interest from the Ferrari community.
Hope to see you guys there!.



Forged Performance Time Attack Series



Time Attack: AKA Time Trial. A motorsport event intended to allow competitors to run the single fastest lap they are capable of. Typical Time Attack events have at least a few practice sessions and 5 lap competitive sessions. Those five laps consist of an out-lap to enable the competitor to cross the Start/Finish line at speed, followed by 3 flying timed laps, and then a cool down lap. This allows the driver to focus on doing whatever it takes to turn the single best lap time, without having to build a race car capable of running an endurance race, or worrying about tire or fuel usage.

Many of you have seen Forged Performance’s Time Attack cars competing at the national level over the past few years. So we’ve decided to make Time Attack more accessible at the local level and available at smaller regional tracks.

We are announcing the Forged Performance Time Attack Series starting with two events for 2010.

Round 1: May 15th -16th at Talledega Grand Prix
Round 2: Aug 28th -29th Roebling Road Raceway

Attendees will have the option of open track (no timing) either or both days, and transponders will be available for both open track and Time Attack sessions.

Pricing Structure:

Time Attack Weekend
$195 Saturday or Sunday alone
$255 Saturday and Sunday combined

AMB Transponder rental is required to record timed sessions, unless you have your own.

Transponder Rental Fee: $40


Classes:

Unlimited: As long as it has 4 tires anything goes…period.

Track: 40+ treadwear tires and current registration, serious track day enthusiast on race rubber in a street car.

Street Mod: 140+ tread wear tires, current registration, interior required from the front seats forward, street tires

Sporty: 180+ treadwear tires, current registration, FULL Interior, no Forced-Induction CHANGES (no FI on non-FI cars, no turbo/blower upgrades on factory FI cars), light bolt-ons.

*At the discretion of Forged Performance certain “Super-Cars” will not be eligible for Sporty. This will apply to cars that have “Super-Car” levels of performance from the factory, such as modern Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis, Z06 Vette’s, GT-R’s, etc.
