Time Attack Toyota Supra

In Circuit, Video by fullboost

A not so common sight at world time attack in Sydney is the Toyota Supra. This year we spotted Nathan’s extremely well built example amongst the endless EVOs and GTRs. This was Nathan’s first attempt at time attack and we could clearly tell this is no one lap wonder build, Nathan told us his focus is running at endurance events.

Although looking more like an open class car, Nathan was competing in the Pro Am class as the flat floor undertray deemed it ineligible. This car is no lightweight, tipping the scale at around 1500kg.

The 2JZ engine retains the stock 3ltr displacement with forged rods and pistons. A dry sump has been added to handle the long distances it covers during track sessions. A low mounted Garrett GT35R at 25 pounds and E85 fuel pushes power to around 480kw or 650hp at the tyres through a TTI 6-speed sequential gearbox.

Large Brembo brakes and MCA coilovers are part of the many components that help Nathan point and brake this heavy Supra at speed.

The Supra performed well all weekend, and we have no doubt we’ll see it back here again.
