    After last season when we lost both our Skyline's it was time to start the plan for 2009. After many sleepless nights the plan was to build S15's.

    We started back in September with a 99 Spec R which was completely mint and was a real shame to strip it to the bare shell, the other S15 was bought from Christy Carpenter, his 08 car which we bought complete less engine.

    Both cars were then sent down to Nathan and Andy at GDA Sports cars in Kent, where we sat down for many hours on how we would take the build forward, I was confident that we had the right guys on board to take on not just one project but two and they promised the cars would both be built before the 2009 season:worthy: :worthy::worthy: with many years in this trade it was a bold statement to make but i had the utmost confidence in these guys and they have kept to their word and the cars are on schedule - the pics will show what we decided to do

    Woohoo, hopefully nothing bad will happen now. It was gods way of saying R33s are f-ugly :D I'm sure you'll do better with the s15s. If you happen to sack one of your drivers btw, I'm without car this year :wack:
