Buttonwillow Top 20 Time Attack Cars

I’ve recently noticed that it is very hard to track down results and times from past Time Attacks, especially the Redline events. Buttonwillow is what many consider the most important venue for time attack in the country, and you would think it’d be easy enough to find a database of lap times from there. Turns out such a thing doesn’t exist, so I’ve set out to create one. Eventually it will be a separate page outside of this blog with all the times for all time attack events since 2007 or so, but until then here’s what I’ve managed to dig up tonight. Since so many cars have run at different events with different drivers, I’ve omitted all but the fastest time by a specific car. If I noted, for example, FXMD’s fastest time for every trip out, they’d be on the list 5-6 times. So here’s the top 20 at Buttonwillow CW13:

Times in bold are the class records. If I missed anyone, let me know. I’m taking times for Time Attack cars only, so no Nasa TT or regular track day times.

  1. FTR, DE with SSE and JC with AQ are both class AND division record holders while BJ with FXMD and CR with WR are fastest for their driveline config but not division. Including the Street class, all class/division records are held by AWD cars.
