Time attack (alternatively known as Super Lap or Tuner Battles) originated in Japan when the tuning media organized the event on race circuits such as Tsukuba Circuit, where it commonly occurs, as a proving ground for street tuned cars built with a large budget by tuning result of the quick rise in popularity, tuners developed purpose built cars for the competition.
Rules are limited to primarily those affecting safety, so extremely lightweight, high horsepower machines are common. Competitors complete a timed lap beginning with a rolling start. The fastest lap time wins.
