What is German for "time attack"?

Time attack is a type of automobile racing where participants compete for the best time around a track.

I'm looking for a translation for that word; I can't seem to find it anywhere.

we usualy do not translate "time attack" we use the english term as far as i know. (as the name of that racing i mean)

if you really want to have a translation though it would be something like "Zeitangriff" or "Zeitattacke"

According to your description I would say "Zeitrennen."

or maybe the more boring "Zeitfahren" which is used for bicycle races

I know, but sometimes one cannot translate it 1 : 1.

maybe, but I never heard that one, and obviously the other dude is talking about a sports race.
