Under a veil of secrecy, Team Dynamic Autosports has been building and developing the 2011 Scion TC platform for Time Attack in the US. Set to pilot this car is Professional Skateboarder and six time X-Games Gold Medalist Bucky Lasek. Lasek with his extensive background in motorsports including a first place win and a professional racing status recognition at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro-Celebrity Race. Bucky’s long standing experience in extreme sports and driver training from Toyota makes him a formidable driver.
Press releases regarding the details of the vehicle have been kept down to a minimum during the development process, but last week marked the completion of the first successful testing of the 2011 Scion TC. Within the first initial test session without any prior seat time, Bucky Lasek was able to lay down an impressive lap time of 1:28. After some minor corrections his time dropped to 1:27. After learning the capabilities of the car within a few laps, Bucky Lasek was able to complete a final lap time of 1:26.3, although it is apparent that there is much room for growth and faster times.
In preparation for the coming events, the Scion TC will undergo further development to make the proven platform even faster.
