The Track Battle Time Attack WA event has been run and done and taken out by Gareth Simpson in the Hippo Creek / Allstar Garage Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. Owner, Gareth Simpson, shared the dirving duties with wild man Troy Wilson and the we’re able to pilot the car to a 60.0 around the long track! Last year’s winner Ryan Palazzolo had to settle for second in his Evo Vi with a 61.0.
Rob Turner took out fastest 2WD, and third outright, in the JPC Nissan S15 Silvia with a 62.9 second lap. Stay tuned for a full event write up.
With this year’s event coming up soon, we thought we would take a look back at the 2011 event
Auto Pro Canning Vale are back again to support Track Battle Time Attack in 2012. Last year they sponsored Geoff Weir in the Subaru WRX and had a trade stand. This year, they are returning with some sponsored cars and are putting up the $1000 prize money for the Dash-for-Cash, given to the driver that sets the fastest lap time at the event.
We are proud to announce that Auto Pro Canning Vale will be putting up $1000 prize money for the fastest lap time set at Track Battle 2012. Will Ryan Palazzolo take it again, or will someone else step it up for the event. We are predicting to see the 60-second mark broken at this years event on R-Comp tyres!
Entries have now opened for the 2012 Track Battle event at Barbagallo Raceway on the 27th and 28th of October. The entry fee is $220 for both street and tuner class and entries will be capped at 30 for each class.
The full program will be released soon along with details on prize money and prize packs for winners. Two top-10 shootouts will be held on Sunday.

After the success of Round 3 of Track Battle Australian Time Attack Series in 2011, and due to the distance of WA from any major East Coast Time Attack Events, we have decided to make Track Battle Australian Time Attack a WA only event.
Once again it will be run in conjunction with the final round of the Just Car Insurance Australian Drifting Grand Prix
Further details will be released shortly, but it will be similar to last year with a street and modified class and a Top-10 shootout for the big crowds on Sunday.
The date of the event will be October 27th and 28th.
Entries will be opening early September.
Well, how do we say this. Round 3 was the fiercest and most competitive event of the year. The battle for the lead raged on all weekend as the leaderboard constantly changed between Ryan Palazzolo, Brett Sherriff and Peter Major. Mechanical dramas, mind games, it was all there. In the end Ryan Palazzollo took out the event and won fastest outright and fatest 4WD in Tuner Class with a staggering time of 1:01.3908 in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI.
