Time Attack Competitor Questionnaire 2023 sees the UK Time Attack Championship take place for the 18th consecutive season. Whilst it retains the core format that has become such an established and much revered feature, it has come a long way since it first took place in 2006. To ensure it continues to deliver for competitors, we want to know what you think: good and bad - and what new features you would like to see (within reason). We therefore encourage you to take a few minutes to answer the following questions and fill in the various fields. Your input is appreciated:Event formatOur events currently feature 4 x 15 minute sessions: Warm-up, Practice, Qualifying and the Final. Would you like any (or all) of these sessions to remain at 15 or be extended to 20 minutes? 15 mins 20 mins Which sessions?
