Default Team Tarzan Tomei / Cusco / Voltex Impreza in World Time Attack Challenge 2010



Quote:
Fresh from its US Tour, one Japan’s fastest cars – the Tomei/Cusco Subaru Impreza WRX is coming to Australia to compete in the 2010 World Time Attack Challenge! With 500hp and weighing in at just 1060kg, the Tomei/Cusco WRX laps the famous Button Willow circuit in ultra-competitive time of 1:44.372. It will be the car’s first ever visit to Australia.

“It’s a great news for the event, the Tomei/Cusco WRX is a big drawcard for the event and it’s the first of the Japanese cars to confirm its attendance”, said Ian Baker – director of Superlap Australia.

Tarzan uses powerband/gearbox based on his driving style.. When he drove our WRX, we were looking at the logs and trying to figure out why he shifts at 5800RPMs was clear to us when we watched the incar video..

Tomei/Cusco STi was brought here for the superlap battle, spend about 4-5 months at the warehouse before getting shipped back to Japan for the AU event coming up.. Has good chance to win !

This setup is as close as it gets to JGTC level, one step us is the Cusco GT300 race car..

the Tomei Cusco car came 3rd at Tsukuba Time attack on Wednesday.

The car was kept in storage for a while due to the economy crisis and since it was not a main priority to be out there racing it was put on the backburner for a while. But now it is back out again and looks like it will make an another appearance this time in Australia next year!!!

Going to be good to see the Superlap World Series event
