How and Where to get your WTAC Ticket

wtac_webstory_show02

There are 2 ways to get your WTAC ticket: online and at the gate.

It is cheaper and more convenient to purchase your tickets online. With your tickets pre-purchased you will also get into the venue quicker using the pre-paid express lane so we always recommend getting your tickets that way. However, we will have single day tickets available at the gate so if you just want to turn up on the day we’ve got you covered.

10 Reasons Why You Can’t Miss WTAC 2016

This year’s WTAC is shaping up to be the biggest and the most exciting one yet. While all our hardcore fans have already booked their holidays, planned their trip and are now impatiently crossing days off on their calendars, there are still those who are either new to WTAC or simply need a bit more convincing.

It is with those people in mind that we’ve prepare the 10 Reasons why you absolutely, positively cannot afford to miss this year’s WTAC:

10. Night drifting is back

forsberg22

If you’ve never experienced the phenomenon that is night drifting you’re in for a treat. Not only do we have some of the biggest names from Japan, USA and New Zealand coming over, we’ve also assembled the most formidable line-up of Australian drifters to take on the internationals. Get ready for two nights of non-stop, full noise drifting action!

9. Tickets for everyone

wtac_webstory_show04

Want to come and watch the whole spectacle that is WTAC? No problem, we’ve got a 2-Day Superass that covers it all. Want to come on Friday after work and then come back for a full day on Saturday? We’ve got a 1.5 Day Pass that covers that. Want to come just on Friday or just on Saturday? No problem, a single day pass is what you want. Want to come and just watch the drift? You can do that too – with an afternoon (entry after 5pm) pass.

8. On-site parking

Driving to WTAC? We’ve got plenty of on-site parking but make sure you get in early as the best spots get taken early on.

7. Daigo Saito and his drift Lamborghini

Daigo_Saito_Lamborghini_Murciélago_Drift-1000x560

One of the most prominent drifters in the world is coming to Sydney with his insane drift Lamborghini. Even if you’re not into drift this car needs to be seen and heard to be appreciated.

6. Tarzan to take on Open Class

tarzan

Two-time WTAC Champion is making a welcome come-back to Open Class in one of the class favourites, Denis Resi’s “Lightning” R32 GTR. The car is already a proven performer with a runner-up title under its belt and with Tarzan at the controls it’s going to be a red-hot class favourite for sure.

5. Crowing of the new WTAC Champion

kosta1

We don’t know who is going to take the big trophy this year, but what we do know is that we’ll be crowning a new champion this year. With the reigning champ retiring, the field is wide open and the challengers are eager to claim that No.1 spot.

4. Mad Mike and the HUMBUL RX7

This is the car Mike won the Japanese round of Formula Drift in earlier this year. The twin turbo, quad rotor monster has never been outside Japan and will no doubt be one of the hot favourites at the International Drift Challenge.

3. Nissan R88C Le Mans

nissanlm

At WTAC we are all about cool cars and they don’t come much cooler than the Group C era Le Mans cars. For 2016 we have secured the amazing Nissan R88C Le Mans car that will be displayed throughout the event and come lunch time we will clear the track and send it out for some hot laps. If you’ve never seen a Group C Le Mans car in action, this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

2. Pagani Huayra BC

PAC0612_Go-3

Unveiled earlier this year, this Italian supercar is worth close to $3 million dollars and is one of the most exclusive production vehicles in the world. You will get to see on display on both days and it will take to the track during the Midday Mayhem. But wait till we tell you who’ll be driving it….

1. Keiichi Tsuchiya

tsuchiya01

The Drift King himself. What can we say about this guy that hasn’t already been said. One of the most recognisable names in the Japanese tuning and indeed motorsport and racing scene. Tsuchiya-san will be piloting the Huayra BC as well doing a drift display in a very familiar looking AE86.

WTAC Survival Guide

wtac_webstory_show02

The Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge is an action packed, two-day event.  There’s so much to see and do it’s a good idea to plan your day so you don’t miss out on anything. To help you out, we have compiled 10 handy tips on how to make the most out of your WTAC experience.

Tip No.1 – Get in early

WTAC_aerial01

The gates open to the public at 7:30am on Friday and Saturday. While it may seem early for most spectators, remember that it takes a while before you get your tickets, find your parking and get down to where the action is. Racing starts at 8:30am.

Tip No.2 – Find the right Entry Gate

wtac_webstory_show06

Queuing up at a wrong gate can be frustrating and a total waste of your valuable time. Spectator Entry is through Gate B – that’s the gate on the grandstand side of the track, off Peter Brock Drive. If you have purchased your ticket online or you have a VIP or Ultimate Fan pass you get to line up in the Express Queue. If you are purchasing your ticket on the day, line up in the general queue. Once your ticket is scanned you will be directed to the closest parking area. Keep you ticket with you in case you need to leave and re-enter the event.

Tip No.3 – Find the WTAC Merchandise Tent

wtac_webstory_show08

Walk through the Pit Zone and you can’t miss it – it’s the big, black and red tent with WTAC logos all over it. It’s directly opposite the Centre Stage. Apart from selling cool WTAC merchandise, WTAC Central also has copies of the official program which will tell you exactly who is racing and when.

Tip No.4 – Bookmark, follow and tag

wtac_webstory_show09

We’ll be running continuous updates throughout the event on our Website, Facebook and Twitter. We will also be running social media competitions so make sure you tag all your posts, tweets and instagram images with #wtac.
WTAC Facebook, WTAC TwitterWTAC Instagram

Tip No.5 – Food and Amenities

wtac_webstory_show12

Sydney Motorsport Park is well designed to cope with big crowds with restrooms located in each of the pit towers (the yellow buildings marked A, B and C).
For food and beverages: The main food outlets are located on the dummy grid side of the Pit Zone, on the Pit Building roof and behind the WTAC Central. There will be numerous other, smaller outlets scattered throughout the venue. Of course the air-conditioned ARDC Garage will also be open for business with good choice of food and drinks as well as providing sweeping views of the main straight.

Tip No.6 – Get your money out

wtac_webstory_show10

There will be two ATM machines operating during WTAC – one located inside the ARDC Garage and one in the South Circuit Pit Building. Most of the food outlets and a lot of exhibitors will have EFTPOS facilities so using your plastic for purchases won’t be a problem but it’s always good to have some cash on you.

Tip No.7 – Cover up and keep well hydrated

wtac_webstory_show05

We are expecting warm, sunny weather for both days so remember to put on some sun screen and keep well hydrated. Should you feel unwell please see one of the WTAC staff members or head straight to the Medical Centre located at the dummy grid end of the Pit Zone.

Tip No.8 – Don’t miss the Pit Walk and Trophy Presentation

wtac_webstory_show01

We’ll open the pit lane gates to the public at the start if Midday Mayhem (check the event schedule for exact time). This will be a perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the time attack machines as all the teams will have them out on display.

wtac_webstory_show13

The trophy presentation is held at the main podium – next to the control tower at the end of the pit lane. Pit lane will be open to spectators during the trophy presentation. The WTAC trophy presentation will start after the last Superlap Shootout session. Don’t miss it.

Tip No.9 – Best spots to see the action from

wtac_webstory_show04

For Time Attack: 1. Pit Garage Roof, 2. The Grandstand, 3. ARDC Building Roof, 4. Turn 11 (just below the parking area), 5. Turns 3, 4 and 5 (looking towards the pit zone – great for taking pictures)
Flying 500: Pit Garage Roof or the Grandstand will give you an uninterrupted view of the main straight all the way down to Turn 1.
Motorsport Legends: 1. Pit Garage Roof, 2. The Grandstand, 3. ARDC Building Roof, 4. Turn 11 (just below the parking area), 5. Turns 3, 4 and 5
For Miss Time Attack and Driver Autograph sessions: all these will be held at the WTAC Stage – on the dummy grid.
For Superlap Shootout: The grandstand, pit building roof.
Int Drift Challenge: The Drift Hill – Turn 12 viewing area provides uninterrupted views of the entire Drift Circuit.
There will be three big screens showing live action from our on-track cameras. You will be able to see the broadcast from our prime viewing positions on the grandstand, pit building roof and in the pit area.

Tip No.10 – Enjoy yourself!

wtac_webstory_show11

First and foremost we want you to have a great time. Really, that’s what it’s all about. That’s why we spend countless hours conversing with our fans through all types of media and tweaking our event to make it more enjoyable for everyone who attends it; the competitors, the exhibitors and of course the spectators.
