Hi! Let’s start with simple things. For first impression about Fast Lap let’s watch the gallery
What is Fast Lap? Fast Lap is well known circuit based event in three Baltic states - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. It kicked off in 2008 as a simple track day and during few years it evolved to well known Time Attack competition. Last year we have added one more option for our racing enthusiasts - Fast Lap Race. Each season we have at least four events. Each event takes place in different track across Baltic states. All Fast Lap entrants are divided into two groups: Street and Pro. We allow only Semi Slick street legal tires like Toyo R888 or other brands. Fast Lap values: quality, constant improvement, honesty and accountability in everything we do.
