Steve Millen to Contest the Targa Newfoundland in Canada

February 28, 2009 Comments off

Regular readers will by now be well aware that the Nissan R35 GT-R is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the motorsport of tarmac rallying. In tarmac-rally mad Australia the Nissan GT-R has had two victories in a matter of months and finished in top places in other instances.

As drivers get more time behind their respective wheels we expect to see this become the rule and not an exception.

Steve Millen has announced that his company STILLEN are right now putting together their own Nissan R35 GT-R to contest the Targa New Foundland in Canada later in the year. The GT-R has begun undergoing race preparations already in the interests of fielding a fully developed car.

Plans consist of stripping the car out, improving the brakes, tuning, tweaking the intake and exhaust and improving the suspension. Hopefully a new tire choice will be added to this list of ToDos.

They’ve already begun stripping the car and have posted a blog update about it. Check their website at the link below to learn more.
