Cadwell Park will host the inaugural round of Moto Time Attack on Sunday 16 July, and Guy Martin set to compete.
For the uninitiated, MTA is based on the successful Time Attack format which is hugely popular in the four wheeled racing world. In short, competitors are challenged to lap the circuit in the fastest possible time across several sessions – meaning the day builds to an exciting crescendo for a pole position shootout.
The inaugural event has attracted a packed line-up of 40 riders – headed up by Guy Martin, who will be competing in the top (over 600cc) class, aboard a new Honda CBR 1000RR SP. He’ll be going head-to-head with Superstock 1000 rider Chrissy Rouse who’ll be on a BMW S1000RR.
There are also classes for club riders, with Ducati TriOptions Cup racer Ieva Baublyte and This is England star Andrew Shim set to appear.
Andy Barnes, MD of Time Attack said: “For a few years we have been nursing the concept of bringing our beloved and unique sport of Time Attack to two wheels and I am pleased to finally say that our dream is now a reality. Our team are avid motorcycle fans and hugely motivated to share our sport with fellow riders. The competition philosophy of MTA is the same as Time Attack in cars; you can tune, alter and modify your bike to make it go quicker, the sport is all about how quick can you get around the track when you are given relative free reign on what you can do with it. To say we are excited to get to Cadwell and make this happen is an understatement!”
