REDLINE Time Attack 2008

REDLINE Time Attack 2008 – Button Willow Raceway ParkBakersfield, California – (March 29-30, 2008) Driver Tyler McQuarrie in the CWest S2000 dominated the competition this weekend to take home 1st place in the RWD Unlimited Class and the title of Overall Grand Champion, in the 2008 REDLINE Time Attack event at Button Willow Raceway Park. His winning time was an astonishing 1:48.829 on configuration, lucky number 13.

Conditions seemed promising on Saturday with temperatures in the mid 70s, low 80s as drivers from all across Southern California took to the tarmac to perfect their race lines and fine tune their vehicles. Saturday was also a amazing opportunity for spectators and Time Attack fans alike to do some laps in an adrenaline charged, high speed ride-along with some of the series’ top drivers. “I went in with a white shirt, and came out brown“ said Time Attack fanatic, Greg Wiist after spinning at nearly 90mph off the track into the dirt field on his ride-along in a top-less Mazda Miata.

Sunday definitely proved to be a test of skill, as drivers battled cold track conditions and harsh desert winds for much of the morning practice session. Only those able to adapt were left standing. After drivers had a few hours to warm up, the official REDLINE Time Attack session began. Each of the 9 divisions were sent out in groups of 5-9 cars and given one warm-up lap, then three hot laps to run the fastest time possible.
