Kels The 350z Racecar Profile

Intro:

We’ve  been developing kels since 2008, when it was purchased from a US team. Previously built by Jackson Stewart of Unitech Racing and campeigned in Grand-Am’s Koni Challenge, this Z was a steal of a deal as it included a parts car (literally a brand new 350z roadster), spare engine, transmission, all the MoTeC goodies you could dream of and a true proper motorsport build. Unfortunately the car was pretty beat up when I acquired it, and it took a lot of love to get it up to speed. The car has been great to me and we’ve learnt a ton with it and have since built it up into a capable and fast GT car. The ultimate goal for the Z is to make it into a true professional level GT car that is capable of doing sub 1:20 laps at Mosport. The goal is to do this without forced induction or excessive modifications to the car that detract from that true GT car genre.
