Forged Performance & NAGTROC Hold Biggest GT-R Track Day Yet

March 2, 2009

Well known Nissan parts and tuning company, Forged Performance, in cooperation with NAGTROC and Koni Challenge Team Freedom Autosport, successfully completed, quite possibly the largest GT-R-only track day in the world.

On February 23, 2009, no less than 21 GT-R’s made the pilgrimage to Virginia International Raceway in Danville, VA to tackle this world renowned race track. All skill levels were invited to attend, and the event went off without incident. All the GT-R’s ran strong and reliably all day long, and many of the top drivers putting down some impressive lap times in fairly stock cars.

In addition to the seemingly unlimited amount of track time, Bryan Hise from JRZ Suspension, hosted a suspension tech session which highlighted some of the considerations involved when modifying the GT-R’s suspension system. JRZ equipped GT-R’s set the fastest laps of the day, and attendees were invited to ride along and experience the track at speed.

Special thanks to Derek Whitis and his team, for their generous hospitality, and all the NAGTROC members that made this event most memorable. Forged Performance hopes to make this a bi-annual event, so look for details on the upcoming Nov, 2008 VIR NAGTROC track event.

Thanks to Sharif from Forged Performance for letting us publish this update and for sourcing the photographs for use on the ‘blog.
