    D3 Powered CTS-V Sedan Victorious at the EXTREME SUPER LAP, Dubai

    D3 Powered CTS-V Sedan Victorious at the EXTREME SUPER LAP, Dubai.

    June 3, 2011, Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    D3 would like to congratulate our local tuner EXTREME PERFORMANCE and owner/driver Mr. Ahmad Al Obaidly for their 1st place class win at the EXTREME SUPER LAP Time Attack Event!

    This vehicle was equipped with all the high performance D3 products to ensure big power gains over factory and our exclusive lineup of cooling systems to ensure zero drop off of performance when dealing with the extreme heat.

    The EXTREME Super Lap is a 2.35KM (1.45 Miles) 12 turn track configuration located at the South Circuit of the Yas Marina Circuit.







    What is Extreme Super Lap?

    Time attack events have enjoyed massive popularity around the world, starting from Japan where the events were conceived as a proving ground for street tuner cars. From the early battles at the Tsukuba race track all the way to an international recognition, the action packed events always attracted the best tuner cars and offered edge-of-the-seat racing action. As a result of the quick rise in popularity, tuners developed cars to beat the competitors, with some of those cars reaching international fame. The Middle East motorsports scene has been longing for a dynamic event like time attack for years and it wasn’t until the recent times when Extreme Motorsports founder Abdulla Al Zaabi decided to introduce it in our region for the very first time under the Extreme Super Lap moniker.

    The maiden Extreme Super Lap race event was held at the south configuration of the Yas Marina Circuit and was deemed an instant success by both the organizers and the participants. A great number of street and race cars provided exciting action while battling to clock their fastest lap times on one of the best race tracks in the world.

    The format of the Extreme Super Lap is based on the time attack principles where a car is released onto the track and first performs a warm-up lap, followed by three flying laps and a cool-down lap. The best lap time is taken for the classification and special honor is given to either the fastest time of the day or a new lap record.

    Race cars are divided into four main categories, namely Street, Super Street, Modified and Super Modified, according to the levels of modification and race preparation. Each class allows a different level of modification aimed at improving the car’s on-track performance and safety is an important aspect of the cars’ preparation.

    Event information can be viewed at: http://www.extremesuperlap.com/Extre...r-Lap-Gallery/

    Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,

    Just a slight correction to the OP

    The track is the Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, not Dubai. Yas Marina is where they host the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
    Congrats to Ahmed for the win and Extreme Performance for the success they're having across the board.

    Re: D3 Powered CTS-V Sedan Victorious at the EXTREME SUPER LAP, Abu Dhabi

    We will have to double check with Extreme on the content of this particular build as they build a lot of cars in their area using our components. I know at the very least this car has the following:

    D3 Competition Aluminum Radiator
    D3 BMF Super Intercooler
    Upgraded Intercooler Pump
    D3 Air Intake System
    D3 Harmonic Balancer Pulley
    D3 Competition Lowering Springs
    D3 Sway Bars
    D3 Brakelines
    Racing Brake Pads
    D3 Stage 3 CNC Heads
    D3 Stage 3 Camshaft
    Just to name a few...

    Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,
