Talking R35's at Race of Champions Wembley stadium !

Hi guys,

Just had one of the best experiences of my life. Driving white R round the Race of champions track inside Wembley stadium ! yes where the English football team plays football on a grass pitch in front of 90,000 people. But this year it has been turned into a race track where the best drivers from F1 Rally, etc..etc.. will battle it out to see who is the best driver on the planet on a level playing field.

Anyway, when i got a phone call asking if i wanted to join in the fun with the GT-R against some modified cars inc all carbon Viper, i was well on it !

Our customer/friend & A1GP driver Fairuz Fauzy in his 600bhp modified Ultimate Silver R35 GT-R and myself in White R 600bhp headed down. Very tight track, but great fun !!!! what a fckin buzz!!. Times and details little hush as it was all covered by Redline magazine who wants exclusivety, tho i did hear from one of the guys Fairuz beat the Viper time.


anyway pics




















































cheers to darryl @ Treble2 for the pics

Awesome! Wish the council would do something like that in my local park ,and now that's a proper use of a football pitch to me.
