[Ben] Web exclusive Nardo coverage.
Lets start with 3rd place. Clocking 356.99kmh (221.2mph) was the incredible Tokyo Auto Salon favorite Phoenixs Power R35 GT-R
This car was the first car Daijiro drove. It sounded like a jet plane from far away but as it approached us after the first high speed lap we realized there was a problem. At 221mph the sheer forces destroyed the front diffuser! This was a humbling way to start the day and it surely reminded me of the extreme risks running at those speeds. Daijro was lucky that this was not another catastrophe as he’s endured his fair share of life threatening danger as a racing driver. The Phoenix Power GT-R was the only of the three cars utilizing the stock final drive gear ratio so it was essentially able to reach full potential before the crippling aerodynamics injury knocked it out of commission for the remainder of the event. This picture was taken as soon as the car came in and you’ll see Daijiro describing the incident in the background for Option Video as Phoenix Power and Top Secret look on.
