Not many cars go through transformations as big as Lawrence Glen’s S14 has. If you were to go back in time roughly six years, you would see a stock luxury spec auto. That’s how it was when Lawrence obtained ownership. He and the car have since relocated to sunny Queensland where Lawrence runs hardtuned.net and his consulting business. However, the car was built primarily to promote nissansilvia.com. The car was to be used mainly as a daily driver with a few track days thrown in the mix and was set up with this in mind. It remained this way for a few years until Drift Australia gained popularity and Lawrence decided it was time for an upgrade. From this point it was set up for drifting and the Silvia is now a regular competitor at sprint and drift competitions.
ROUND 2 Stanthorpe The Stanthorpe track is very popular with drivers and is rated as the Number One track on the Stadium Drift Tour. Consequently Round 2 featured a huge day of nonstop drift action, with a quality field, and edge of your seat, close battles all day. Dan Kenneally (Hogstar Rockstar Nissan) put in some awesome drives to battle his way to the top spot. The Iceman Nick Coulson (Just Nice Cars Nissan) dealt with the toughest drifters in the series to take second spot on the day from Rob Whyte (Monster / Motul 350Z) and Eugene Arendsen (Tokage Soarer). In the L2 series Levi Clarke in his awesome Skyline took out the day from Todd Dalgleish, Gavin Edwards and the hard drifting Tim Connibear. Thanks to all drivers for a great show. --------------------- ROUND 3 ------------- Round 3 was another action packed day of nonstop drifting at the superb NSW venue Wakefield Park with a good entry line up and fierce battles throughout the day, especially in the finals. The new Pro format which now includes a semi final proved to be a huge success providing the top 8 Pro drivers from the heats a second chance at making the finals. The action provided by this new addition was also a bonus for the very enthusiastic crowd with the pit wall packed with spectators keen to see who was going to make it through; the rule was simple, if you won you stayed out, if you lost, it was back to the pits. The biggest, wildest hit of the day was the high speed slide into the armco by Matt Hambridge (Hi Tech Oils Nissan) as he took the wide line attempting a huge entry into the first turn. Although the car sustained quite a bit of damage Matt did make it back out later in the day.
