Milltek GT-R Attacks Snetterton for final Time Attack
On Sunday 25th September 2011, Milltek’s Nissan GT-R took the fight to the regular Time Attack competitors at the newly refurbished Snetterton race circuit near Norfolk for the final round of the 2011 season.
The main reason for the Time Attack expedition was to test the performance and durability of our brand new 90mm (3.5-inch) Nissan GT-R Racing exhaust system - what better way to do it than fit it to long term Milltek user (and abuser) Richard Marshall's awesome Litchfield Imports-prepared Nissan GT-R and blast it around Snetterton for the day!
Taking part in the Pro class alongside some of the fastest cars in country, our GT-R managed, not only to use half a tank of fuel in just 31 miles(!), but most impressively, finished 2nd overall. We were actually leading the pack until the last 3 minutes where it was finally bettered by the overall season winner Gavin Renshaw in a track-prepared Mitsubishi Evo IX. Quite simply, it was an outstanding performance from, Richard Marshall, his Nissan GT-R and the Milltek 90mm race system!
Because we hadn’t taken part in the whole season we weren’t eligible for an award but it was a great day and everyone was very welcoming!
Rest assured that we’ll be back next year. In the meantime, we’ve swapped over to some new wheels and tyres and are heading straight off to Bedford Autodrome on Monday to try to win the ‘How Fast’ challenge…
