GTR 700 - Headed Back to the Drag Strip , OZ Record Broken

Jamboree website

"Mark Jacobsen of Godzilla Motorsport in Brisbane, has been working hard in the lead up, to Round 3 of the Toyo Tires Sport Compact Group Drag Racing Series. At the Willowbank March Madness event on March 15, Jacobsen broke the long standing Australian GT-R previous held by the Croydon Racing Developments in the GTR700. The previous record was an 8.273 at 167.5mph and Jacobsen stopped the clock at an 8.271 @171.1mph.

Not content with the 8.271sec pass, Jacobsen hit the track again 6 days later at a Friday night Test & Tune to punch out an 8.11 @ 172.8mph cementing his name on the Quickest GT-R in Australia Title. Checkout the run on Godzilla's website.

Before making the trip down to WSID for Round 3 on May 18th Jacobsen will have another hit out at the Castrol EDGE Tin Top Titles this weekend, April 18th & 19th.

"With the fully prepared track of the Castrol EDGE Tin Top Titles this weekend, we'll be able to screw some more boost into the 2.6 ltr engine comb and see if we can break into the 7's before heading to Sydney for Round 3 of the Toyo Tires Series" commented Jacobsen.

Rumours of Croydon Racing Developments bringing the GTR700 back out were confirmed today after a phone call to them. Croydon told me today they have been planning to bring GTR700 back out and they now have even more reason to do so. It'll be a couple of months before it happens, but you can be assured come Round 4 of the Toyo Tires Series at the Castrol EDGE Jamboree on August 23rd & 24th there will be a GT-R battle like no other.
