More exciting news to add to the World Time Attack Challenge hype for October. Shane Van Gisbergen doesn’t think racing just the MCA Suspension Nissan Silvia, dubbed ‘Hammerhead’, will be enough, and has announced he will team up with the Drift Syndicate team to drift its Holden Commodore at the coming Formula Drift championship.
The Nankang NS2R provides genuine road and track performance — without breaking the bank. It is an ultra-high–performance tyre with 180-tread wear, ideal for the track-day enthusiast. The design optimizes tread width to deliver a contact patch 13 per cent wider than regular tyres to improve high-speed stability. A continuous-tread shoulder design enhances tyre stiffness, ensuring cornering precision and grip. But the key Nankang element is durability, and however hard the tyre is pushed, it will perform for longer. The NS2R is available in a range of sizes from 16 to 18 inches.

Although Porsche tuning house RWB has been around for a little while now, Nakai San continues to churn out jaw-dropping Porsches around the globe. What makes each car so special is not the kit, the epic wheels or ground-scraping ride height, it’s the personal touches that Nakai puts into each build. You simply don’t hit buy now, punch in your credit card details and a month later receive a bunch of boxes full of parts to assemble on your car. Each and every RWB creation is handcrafted by the man himself, taking inspiration from both the owner and the environment in which the machine will be used. This means no two RWB Porsches are the same, and each owner can personally see the project transform in front of his eyes.
The 2014 NAC New Zealand Drift Nationals takes place this Sunday September 21 at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, and this year we are doing things a little different. We have implemented a new format for qualifying, similar to the successful Battlemania, foregoing the traditional single run passes, replaced instead with 120 fast-paced battle runs to dictate the top 16 qualifying order. Those drivers will then compete in a traditional elimination format to find the 2014 champion. So exactly how will the new format work? Read on to find out.
