For the uninitiated to World Time Attack Challenge, let's get the basics out of the way — we're talking motorsport. Specifically, high-performance supercars. Brought over to Australia from its spiritual home of Japan, the WTAC is a little like a Formula 1 qualifying session where the aim is to set the fastest one-lap time.

However, very much unlike Formula 1, modifications aren't just allowed — they're encouraged. This creates a thrilling, gloves-off motorsport where fans can see the true potential of these souped-up, expertly engineered machines.

The WTAC is a two-day event across August 30–31 at Sydney Motorsport Park with plenty of other things to see. Highlights include the Turbosmart Flying 500, where cars race side by side, the Garrett International Drifting Cup (one of the biggest drifting events in the Southern Hemisphere) and the Shannons Stylized Show 'n' Shine, where you get the chance to purr over the finest pieces of art on four wheels. It has everything a petrolhead could ever wish to see.
