WTAC: The Results Are In…


This year’s World Time Attack Challenge saw competitors battle not just each other, but some of the most adverse weather conditions Sydney has to offer.

Torrential downpours and wild temperature swings, punctuated by sporadic showers. Conditions have never been more unpredictable.

Teams were powerless, and essentially left to guess what conditions they’d be forced to push both themselves and their machinery through. Despite the wild weather, a new record was set, and a new champion crowned.
