This project all started as my parents didn’t want to buy me a car especially a car I wanted at the time when I was 18, a Nissan S13 or Porsche 944. Which I can understand why because as a parent you don’t your kid especially when hormones are running rampant to:

  • Become at hoon
  • Drive dangerously and get killed
  • Get invested in a car,  wasting money and not studying

I was given this car as a hand me down for FREE from my uncle who moved interstate to start a business and left the car behind. I decided to modify the car out of spite.

If I can’t get the car I want. I’ll make into a car I want!

That soon got me into the 2nd part of the project as time went on after getting involved in motorsports and modifying the car.

The project was to get rid of the stigma motorsport being expensive and the idea of only certain cars/platforms are meant to at the track/modified/enjoyed. How else would you know if a platform is good or not if nobody tries it? Why are certain cars frowned upon?

Why is it if they have one make series all over the world e.g Micra Cup, Vitz Cup, Mini Cup, Swift Cup, etc (I could go on forever) and a culture for these types of cars except here in Australia.

It’s this toxic mindset in the car community especially in Australia which limits the variety of cars both in motorsports and car culture, it kills the grassroots & car ownership aspects.
