Yesterday the Team Falken car was been having a few problems with their suspension. Or rather, the gruelling Nurburgring has been taking its toll on lightweight machined aluminium components. Our sources inside the team reports that the circuit has caused failure of the components. As such, the Falken team have borrowed suspension components from M & M Tuning to see them fit for the race.

The frantic activity in the Paddock garage didn’t seem to affect the mood of driver, Tetsuya Tanaka, who was surrounded by Japanese media giving interviews whilst the components were stripped out and exchanged.

Tetsuya commented that he hopes to race more in the UK, his only previous outing being at Croft Circuit, where a forthcoming club trackday will soon be enjoyed by 350zUKownersclub Members.

Any questions that this is a Nismo backed car can clearly be answered as soon as the bonnet is raised. The car is sporting the latest Nismo 3.8 litre engine, the VQ38HR, complete with dual intakes, enlarged plenum and, not forgetting, the Omori Factory engine plate.
