WTAC 2017 Car Show

There was heat beyond the epic time attack battle in Syndey

Oct 23, 2017
Photographer: Alastair Ritchie

The buzz surrounding World Time Attack each year at Syndey's Motorsport Park is solely focused on the record-breaking action that takes place on track. However, what many don't know is that there's also a car show that takes place during the event, and from what Alastair Ritchie sent back to us from Australia, quite a few locals with some very well-built cars make their way to the event.

Sifting through the gallery, you'll notice that some of the display vehicles are more performance oriented, while others are full-blown show builds, and because of this, the main ingredient at WTAC's car show seems to be variety. From time attack cars to JDM-influenced street cars and even a lowrider or two, the diversity is in no way lacking.

You've seen stock-bodied RX-7s that blew you away as well as the influx of widebody versions that seem to be taking over the social media airwaves, but this example sits somewhere in the middle. Sleek black on black with a slight bump to the rear arches and a aggressive front bumper with carbon fiber splitter and canards up front make for an aggressive look without going overboard.

When you want to draw in a crowd at WTAC, you bring out the big guns, like Tilton Interiors' three-time championship winning Evo 9!

Mishimoto was one of many vendors on hand showing its latest and greatest while fielding fan questions.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show Tamon Design S2000

The Concept Garage S2000 features a Tamon Design MS-R aero kit that increases the front fenders by 50mm and the rears by 70mm. The wind tunnel tested affair carries an MSRP of almost $10k.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show 510

We can't get enough of this slick 510 in the V-Sport booth complete with TE37V rollers, custom arches and one of the sexiest SR swaps we've seen in a long time. Based on the missing lugs and tire stickers, we're assuming this one might not be 100-percent complete yet but it's already a standout in our eyes!

It doesn't get much wilder than this 2JZ-powered 86 with a symphony awaiting the driver via a quartet of hood exit exhaust tubing.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show Billet Block

If you're interested in making up to 2,500hp and need a block that can handle all of that pressure, check out the RB30 from hell. Bullet Race Engineering of Australia's billet block is no joke - these guys mean business.

If you've got to make those grocery store runs and bring the net, cones, and flags to soccer practice, this is the way to do it with style and in quick order.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show S Chassis

Nice combo pictured here that includes this '71 Datsun 1600 we featured this summer.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show Garrett Turbos

It's like catnip for boost fiends.

  |   WTAC 2017 Car Show Nissan Silvia

There's a pretty good chance you've never seen an S15 quite like this. Love it or hate it, it definitely caught people's attention.
