Time Table of the Event:

7:00AM-

Check-in and begin Tech Inspection
Because we were uninformed of new regulations requiring 5 point or higher harnesses, our car was almost unable to compete do to it only having a 4 point harness. Thankfully Signal Auto, another competitor, graciously allowed us to borrow one of their 5 point harnesses. Another regulation that we were not aware of, was that the driver side window must be rolled down or taken out of the door. The passenger side window also needed to be rolled down or taken out if it was glass. Unfortunately our acrylic driver side window was bolted in and could not be rolled down, so we needed to take it out. Luckily, our passenger side window is acrylic and did not have to be taken out.

Time Attack Begins
For this time attack, we at C-West USA, brought our Honda S2000 equipped with a full Carbon Fiber C-West body. The S2000 competed in the Unlimited FR class and was Driven by Eiji “Tarzan” Yamada. For this event, we ran the S2000 with a stock JDM 2.0L motor, to show that our aero-parts can produce great results, regardless of horsepower.
Recorded Times:
Practice and tuning session - 1:56.239
Session 1 - No Time
Session 2 - 1:54.128
Session 3 - 1:53.147
Session 4 - Cancelled

Our plan of attack was to use shaved tires for the practice session, and sessions 1-3, saving a new set of tires for the fourth and final session, but unfortunately, the fourth session was cancelled due to time restraints. Perhaps if we had been able to run the fourth session with the brand new tires, we would have been able to run an even better time.
Top 5 over all times:
1. GM Performance Unlimited FF Cobalt 1:51.318
2. Import Car Tuner Unlimited AWD Evo 8 1:52.561
3. Signal Auto Unlimited AWD GT-R R34 1:53.021
4. C-West USA Unlimited FR S2000 1:53.147
5. Red Hot Unlimited FR M3 1:54.689

When all was said and done, our S2000 won the Unlimited FR class as well as set a new FR car course record at Buttonwillow Speedway Park. We are very proud of the outcome of this time attack. Amidst tough competition from big tuners such as J’s Racing, and Red Hot, our vehicle, and aero-parts were able to come out on top, even with the use of a stock motor.
