Race Team Rebuilds A GT3 In 12 Hours To Get It Back On The Track
August 22nd, 2017
During qualifying for the Spa 24 Hours, the number 22 GT-R NISMO GT3 suffered a tire puncture, which sent it straight into a barrier and destroyed the front end. The damage was extensive, but the team was able to fix the car and bring it back out in just 12 hours. And luckily, NISMO got the whole repair on tape.
The NISMO TV YouTube channel posted a video detailing the crash, a time-lapse of their repairs, and the car's return to the pit lane after a long night of work. It's amazing what a race team can do.
This week on PowerNation Katie features this drop dead gorgeous 1941 Ford F-1 built by the team from One Off Rod & Custom in Middletown, DE that made it all the way to the Ridler Great 8! Shop owner Gary Corkell and Kristina Young will share all the hard work that went into transforming a partially restored truck into a Ridler contender, including a complicated two-tone paint job called “Brown Sugar” that has 18 coats of Clear, a period correct Flathead, and a motorized hood and bed that reveals jewelry-like suspension. The interior is equally superb with imported leather and hydro-dipped dash components for a stunning look. Owner Ed Sears has to be happy, he’s commissioned them to take another shot at the Ridler. Check it out this week on PowerNation!
