2012 Global Time Attack Championship Chase

For the 2012 season the Global Time Attack will introduce the Championship Chase. At each of the six GTA events teams will collect points towards an overall season championship. Three champions will be crowned in the Street, Limited and Unlimited classes.

Rather than driver- or car-based titles the GTA Championship Chase will be contested between teams (like a constructor’s championship). Any team or individual that enters a 2012 GTA event will be eligible to earn Championship Chase points*.

If after entering a 2012 GTA event a team needs to substitute a driver or a car for a subsequent event entry the substitution must be submitted – with a valid reason – to the GTA staff via email to info@globaltimeattack.com no later than 48 hours before the first session of that event** in order to receive Championship Chase points.

Once a properly submitted substitution request has been received an independent panel of time attack team representatives selected by the GTA staff (across each of our three classes) will review it. Panel representatives whose teams have submitted a substitution request will be exempt in that particular instance. The Global Time Attack reserves the right to make the final decision in regards to any and all substitution requests.

The reason behind these substitution requests is to allow a team the opportunity to continue to contest the championship in the event that a catastrophic failure prompts a replacement car or if a driver is unable to compete for a valid reason. This will also prevent teams from engaging in any rental car or ringer driver loophole tactics that can manipulate a points system and invariably taint a championship.

The prize purse and the point breakdown for the 2012 GTA Championship Chase is listed below. The points for each of the three classes will be worth the same value.

*Any team that does not pass a post-race inspection will be stripped of any points earned at that event.

**The 48-hour period before an event will be measured from the start of the first timed session. For example if the first session of the second round of the 2012 GTA season starts at 8:00am EDT on Fri, May 11 then the deadline to submit substitution requests for that event will be at 8:00am EDT on Wed, May 9.
