The Pod R32 - Nissan Skyline R32 GTS Drift Car
A little info on Santa Pod's own Drift Car. The car was originally built by world renowned tuning company Apexi in Japan. It was then shipped to the UK and prepped for drifting and D1GB safety standards by UK tuning powerhouse Sumo Power.
The bodykit and 18" wheels are from Do Luck, and further 'Drift spec' set up by was done by Julian Smith at Garage-D with parts supplied by HKS Europe. An hydraulic handbrake and twin plated clutch help the skyline to drift.
In 2006 it was driven by ‘Stig’ and came in the top 10 in the D1GB Drift Series.
In 2015 having been in storage for a few years, the Pod R32 was in desperate need of some TLC and with the help of some very generous associates, the car now has new paintwork, a new turbo and a new driver! Michelle Westby who will be performing drift demos in the car at The Fast Show, JapShow, USC and JapShow Finale in 2015.
A very special thanks goes to all the contributors of the rebuild, AB Styling, Owen Developments, Corbeau Seats and Garage-D.
