Guy Martin heads inaugural Moto Time Attack entries this Sunday

Wednesday, July 12 2017

Cadwell Park will host the global debut of a brand new sport this Sunday (16 July), when motorsport celebrity Guy Martin will be amongst the competitors in the inaugural Moto Time Attack (MTA) event, which is free of charge to spectators.

MTA is based upon the highly successful Time Attack format for cars which is open to a huge variety of standard and modified machinery. Competitors are challenged to lap the circuit in the fastest possible time, and with each performing several runs, the day builds up to an exciting crescendo with all of the tension of a pole position shootout.

Cadwell Park has been chosen to debut the brand new motorcycle sport, as the circuit is highly-regarded amongst the two-wheeled community. Many of the sport's finest riders have competed at the Lincolnshire Wolds venue and fans still flock to the spectacular Mountain section for the annual MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship summer party.

The inaugural event has attracted an entry of 40 riders, and the list is headed up by celebrity biker Guy Martin. The Lincolnshire-based rider will compete in the top Over 600cc class for professional riders, and will be on board the latest Honda CBR 1000RR SP superbike. He'll be going head-to-head with Superstock 1000 podium finisher Chrissy Rouse, one of four BMW S1000RR riders.

There are also classes for club riders, with entries including Ducati TriOptions Cup racer Ieva Baublyte and This is England star Andrew Shim.

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!'

Entry to Moto Time Attack at Cadwell Park on Sunday 16 July is free to all spectators. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
