Yes, we thought that might grab your attention! And we are not kidding either…
In October you will get your chance to see the three times WTAC Champion, Tilton Racing Evo, on track!
As the car is now retired, it will not be competing, instead it will be fitted up for team’s owner and all round legend Kostinken Pohurukov who will be sent out to do a Lap of Honour during the Midday Mayhem.
Being a true revhead at heart and with plenty of Radical racing experience under his belt, rest assured Kosta will not be satisfied with just a leisurely paced demo lap. “Hell no,” replied Kosta when we’ve asked him if he’s going to take it easy. “It will be pedal to the metal all the way!”
“It really is an honour to be able to do this for Kosta” said Superlap CEO Ian Baker. “He is without a question the backbone of the whole Tilton operation and when I found out he had never even driven the car in anger we just had to do something about it.”
“Kosta really has been the heart and soul of time attack racing from day one back at Oran Park. This is our way of saying thank you and as a bonus the fans worldwide get one last chance to see what is unquestionably (until proven otherwise) the fastest time attack car on the planet.”
“It is true that I have never driven it in anger” said Kosta. “That is mainly because myself and my team were always so focused on the task at hand and that was to win WTAC.”
“In fact this will be the very first year we will sit it out so I guess you could say I am a tad excited to get behind the wheel of something that has been such a massive part of my life for so many years. Finally I will get to see what the beast feels like from a driver’s perspective. I can’t wait!”
“I got married earlier this year and I promised my wife I would calm down for a bit with the cars. But the bug is always biting and I already have a new car on the drawing board to take on the new breed of time attack cars.”
“It would be silly to think we could go much faster in what still is essentially a modified road car. The game at the top end has changed for sure and the fact that we have been able to stay on top for this long is a testament to my team. We’ll need a new weapon of an entirely different design principle and that is what we have already started to work on.”
Throughout both days the Tilton Evo will be on display on the Royal Purple stand. Members of the Tilton team including driver Garth Walden will be out for a small presentation on the centre stage on Saturday afternoon followed by a short Q&A session. If you are a true time attack fan you will not want to miss this opportunity.
This will be your one last chance to see this iconic car on track. Don’t miss it. Book your WTAC tickets now!
