I'm aged 33, I live in sunny Devon, near Exeter after moving from Wales to live with my fiancée. I currently work as an assistant manager in a pub/hotel what got me into the car scene? My dad got me in to the car scene and my love for cars, I would watch formula one and touring cars on TV with him and go to car shows with him and his classic mini.

My first car was a classic mini 1986, which I modified then I got a proton Satria which I absolutely loved, unfortunately, a motorway accident caused the car to be written off, so I decided to buy another Proton, which was featured in lots of magazines after I did a lot of modifications to it such as supercharger, nitrous etc.  My current pride and joy that has caused many headaches is a Nissan Skyline R33 GTST which I purchased for £2,069 back in 2011. It had a couple of mods when I bought it, it had a standard turbo stage 1 tuned. In those 9 years since I have had the car, I have modified it quite a lot, the current spec list is as follows-

Most of the work I have done myself, but the tuning has been done by ‘Whifbitz’ in Caldicot. Parts for the build have come from ‘Auto-Extreme’, ‘JDM garage’ and ‘Conceptua tuning’. I have been through several stages of tune, and I managed a 13second 1/4mile 115mph @ 480BHP at Santa Pod raceway. Currently the cars last dyno reading was 579BHP which is 483.2BHP 368.6LB-FT @ the hubs @ 1.2bar. I started making changes to the engine/drivetrain after being beaten on the drag strip by a 70year old lady driving a Rover 75 on the drag strip at Santa Pod, the video can be found on YouTube, I am still friends with her and her family and still joke about me now. Hopefully, when it is all complete the car will reach 700BHP or thereabouts! I am hoping next time I go to Santa Pod I will run a low 11second pass. Once I am happy with the engine and performance, it will be off to be mapped and I will be sorting out the body work which could do with some love and a fresh coat of paint.
