It’s been roughly a year since I purchased my 1990 Nissan 300ZX Z32. In this article, I’m going to list what upgrades I’ve done to the car over the last year, for use at Tampered Motorsport events held at Sandown. Hopefully it gives an insight into what’s required to get a road car prepared for track days.
The motoring world has been blessed with some beautiful looking cars over the years, with the Jaguar E-Type, Ferrari 250 GTO, Lamborghini Miura, Ford GT40, Aston Martin DBS, McLaren F1 and Audi R8 immediately springing to mind. Back in 2012, Lexus premiered the LF-LC Concept, intended to be the replacement for the older SC model. The project got approved and production started in early 2017, with two models introduced, including the LC500 V8 and LC500h V6 hybrid.

I have a lifelong interest in cars and motorsport, leading to the formation of my website called Automotive Torque (automotivetorque.com) in February 2017. The original intention was to make galleries out of all my car photos, but the website then developed into new and used cars reviews, car news and videos.
