In the last few years we’ve been lucky enough to pit-crew for top international drivers Daigo Saito, Ryan Tuerck, Mad Mike Whiddett and Beau Yates. We've also had Melbourne-based driver Michael Prosenik’s LS-powered Silvia with us for a full D1NZ season, providing complete fly-in/fly-out competition prep, pit pack-down & secure storage. We have now combined our race-prep and race-day-services with full top to bottom drift-car builds for Hong Kong based drivers Arthur Lee and Edmand Chan.
Arthur’s S15 rolled in as a spec-R street car and over the time it was with us, it evolved into a full noise, high-spec, “you can’t drift something this beautiful” track-ready machine. Every single part of this car is impressive and we’re stoked to have been able to piece it together for him.
Edmand has had a few cars of his street cars in with us over the last 2 years, but his direction also changed and we pieced together an R34 Skyline to be a D1-ready racecar in a matter of weeks.
With their busy schedules, we stepped in to organise everything from D1NZ competition entry, secure storage facilities, alignments, repairs, upgrades, tyre orders and fittings, tuning, test days, vehicle transport & accommodation arrangements for events; and when it came to race-day we also provide a spotter, tyre-changing, pit-crew and tools for repairs and maintenance during the event.
Both these vehicles then went over to compete in China in 2018, and in 2019 we are taking on another top to bottom build for Arthur as well as re-shelling his existing vehicle after a collision at D1GP. We can't wait to show you the results of these builds but they will be nothing short of epic.
