I realise this update is a little overdue but we have been very busy over the last month! The end of June saw Chris and Myself hit the road in our Evolution IX Wagon GT, to conquer 2000 miles around Europe. Taking in some awesome sights and locations including; the Nurburgring, Stelvio Pass, Lake Garda and Col d’iseran to name a few.
The Evo Wagon was the perfect weapon for these roads and the distance we needed to cover. At times there were three of us on board, when Ben from Pistonheads needed a ride for the day!
For those that haven’t taken part in an organised Euro Trip such as Rico Rally, may I suggest you get yourself booked on one! It’s like a six day trackday, with 5 micro-holidays jammed into one trip! From Lakeside sea food, Italian health Spas, World Famous racetracks to Supercar museums.. You see it all! Whilst all this is happening, you get to make new friends and experience the buzz of driving amazing roads everyday!
The guys at Rico Rally are a great crew with years of experience and no doubt we will be on the startline in June 2017.
The second August weekend saw ATP Cars join forces with Auto Torque in attending the first ever fully public NissShow. Held within the famous Rockingham Motor Speedway on Sunday the 14th, the infield paddock was full of all different varieties of the Japanese marque. There was also plenty of live action throughout the day including track time, drifting and even charity passenger rides.
We reserved three pit garages and brought along two of our GTR’s to put on display. We had a great time chatting to everyone that dropped by to see us, offering a chill out area to chat about all things Nissan!
ATP Cars also took part in the World record attempt for ‘Most GTR’s on track’ in a parade lap around the Rockingham circuit. This was an amazing sight to see and no doubt there will be an attempt to better this next year!
