We are pleased to announce that Time Attack legend driver, Tarzan Yamada will be attending Round 3 of the Time Attack Series at Silverstone, June 1st ( hosted at the JTS Show ).

Yamada,( picture attached ), is the driver of the world-famous Unlimited Works-Cyber Evo in Japan as well as the hired gun driver for various and many of Japan’s Time Attack teams. He is famed for his Time Attack technique and ability to extract every ounce of performance and time from each of the cars he has previously driven.

Tarzan also participates in some Time Attack events in the USA where teams hire him to push their engineering to the limits.

Yamada’s decision to visit the UK for the very first time is based on witnessing the UK Time Attack scene first hand and to introduce his skills to the teams and drivers locally. His enthusiasm comes from seeing the 4 UK teams at Tsukuba Circuit in December and being impressed with the level of engineering making him curious to our local scene. He will attend the event with his full race gear should his services be required and is looking forward to driving at Silverstone for the first time in his career.

Yamada is also extending his services whilst he is in the UK, offering his driving service to any teams which may wish to make use of his experience in the Time Attack format.

Andy Barnes, Time Attack Series commented ‘ One of the most famous Time Attack drivers on the planet is set to invade Silverstone in his quest to feed his curiosity about Europe and to say we are pleased with his commitment to join us is an understatement’

A first for the UK industry and another milestone in Time Attack’s invasion on the aftermarket scene today. Japan is coming to the UK for the first time in history, its HUGE!
