Details of how to book can be found here: Silverstone Classic Other great events include and the Workshop Day, all are open for sign ups. This Month Mod Day - 20th April 2019 Pictures by Alex_C The weather was amazing over the Easter weekend and the turn out was great for Mod Day. Activities included detailing, glass treatment, chatting and working on cars. It was lovely to meet up with new faces as well as number of members not seen for a couple of years. The day went way too quickly. Thanks to our hosts Chilli Red & Tony for the hospitality, and location. A few pictures and posts, comments on the day can be found here Leeds Castle - 11th / 12th May 2019 With a overcast first day and a glorious second day, the club returned to Leeds Castle for the fourth year. Further pictures and reports from the event can be found here The Rebuild We catch back up on a members rebuild of a 350z. It is really starting to take shape now. Now supporting its final colour it looks absolutely Stunning. Follow the progress of the build with regular updates posted by nacnud here Nismo News May 2019 NISSAN DUO TAKE SUPER GT CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD Nissan GT500 stars Tsugio Matsuda and Ronnie Quintarelli have taken the lead in the Super GT championship after scoring their second consecutive runner-up finish at Fuji International Speedway. After finishing second in the rain-shortened opening round at Okayama, the Japanese/Italian driver combo aboard the No. 23 Motul Autech Nissan GT-R NISMO GT500 started from pole in Fuji after Quintarelli set a new qualifying lap record on Friday. After Saturday's race began behind the safety car, Quintarelli took the lead when the race went green on lap three. The Nissan driver lost the top spot on lap 13 at the first corner before the event was red flagged three laps later due to worsening weather conditions. The race resumed after a 30-minute delay with Quintarelli dropping back to fifth at one stage before charging back through the pack to regain the lead by lap 31. Tsugio Matsuda took over and switched to slicks on lap 41 and continued to run in the top two throughout his stint. Quintarelli took over for the final stint with 30 laps to go and held the lead until 10 laps to go. After a hard fought 110 laps, the No. 23 Nissan crossed the line in second to grab the championship lead. Matsuda and Quintarelli now have a three-point gap in the title chase with six rounds remaining. The No. 3 GT-R of Nissan newcomers Kohei Hirate and Frederic Makowiecki finished sixth to score points for the second race in a row. 12th place finisher Daiki Sasaki and James Rossiter’s race was impacted by a contact-induced spin while Jann Mardenborough and Mitsunori Takaboshi suffered a technical issue and lost seven laps in the pits en route to finishing 14th. Nissan had impressive speed in the GT300 class with Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 of Kazuki Hiramine and Sacha Fenestraz starting from pole while Katsuyuki Hiranaka and Hironobu Yasuda took their GT-R to victory lane – Yasuda recording a stunning final lap to hold on for the win at the checkered flag. NISSAN E.DAMS TAKES FIFTH POLE AND THIRD FORMULA E PODIUM Nissan e.dams continued its strong ABB FIA Formula E championship pace today with Sebastien Buemi taking pole position and finishing second in Germany. Buemi's second place was his first podium for this season, the third for Nissan e.dams and comes back-to-back after teammate Oliver Rowland took the pole and finished second in the previous round in Monaco. Nissan is using Formula E to demonstrate the power and performance of its electric vehicle technology – a key part of the company’s Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision. After finishing second in the qualifying group sessions, Buemi continued Nissan e.dams’ run of being the only team to earn a place in the Super Pole session for each round of season five. He made the most of the opportunity by topping the times in Super Pole and leading the opening five laps of the race. During the race he briefly dropped to third before using the extra power granted by earning the #FANBOOST vote to move back into the runner-up position. Rowland qualified 12th fastest and fought hard throughout the 45-minute race at Berlin’s old Tempelhof Airport to cross the line in eighth place. With 25 points in this race, the team has moved into fourth place of team’s championship and both drivers into the top ten in the driver’s championship.

This major rebuild project on a 350z. This month there has been continued work to area's of corrosion and cleaning up the chassis ready for painting. John found lots of road grime under the plastic protection cover's at the front corners of the rear wings & after cleaning the grime out he found that the metal underneath was rusty! Well rusty was an understatement, as he pushed a scriber through the metal without any difficulty at all! John decided to investigate & cut out some steel to inspect the inside of the rear corner. Well the pictures tell the rest of the story. Before moving on to fabricate new sections. The rear end of the sills have been coming along well having removed all the rust out having stiffened up the jacking points and straightening them the previous owner to John was ham-fisted when it came to jacking the car, so John has drilled a few plug weld holes & welded the lot together also opened up the sills at the rear to let any water out when the car is washed!
