2015 Continental Tire Super Lap Battle x Global Time Attack (w/Video)

Broken records, quick results, and a photo album from North America’s biggest time attack.

Jan 5, 2016

For the first time in event history, the Super Lap Battle x Global Time Attack season finale presented by Continental Tire was extended to two days at Buttonwillow Raceway, Nov. 11 and 12, 2015, primarily to accommodate the dozens of competitors who signed up to take part. This year everyone had plenty of time to go out and set a personal best (provided all their machinery was in working order), and organizers even found space to squeeze in a practice session at the beginning of day one.

Conditions were ripe for records to fall, and fell they did, with arguably the biggest being Dai Yoshihara’s resetting of the Unlimited Front Wheel Drive high mark. Previously set by Chris Rado in the comically overdone World Racing Scion tC, Yoshihara lapped a 1:45.585 in the much more modestly aero’ed Spoon Sports Honda Civic Type-R, eclipsing Rado’s 1:47.394 by nearly two seconds.

Other records to fall included Limited AWD, which was reestablished by Jeff Westphal, last year’s overall track record breaker, this time in the Professional Awesome Fortune Auto Zeitronix Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII, who did it in 1:42.694. Tony Fuentes in the Auto Function S2000 reset Street RWD with an orbit of 1:48.802, Chris Boersma in the Boersma Racing Civic SiR set a new record in Street FWD with a 1:52.122, and Dom Bautista in the Auto Function S2000 reset Enthusiast RWD with a 1:55.518.
