The British Touring Car Championship in the mid-1990’s provided some of the best motor racing ever seen. I have great memories of watching the championship in my early teenage years. There were a large number of drivers and manufacturers entered. Some of these manufactures included Renault, Alfa-Romeo, BMW, Vauxhall, Ford, Peugeot, Audi, Honda and Nissan.

It’s been 17 long years since the Supra featured in the Toyota range, when production of the fourth generation A80 Supra ceased in 2002. The Supra, especially the A80 model, built an impressive reputation as one of the finest performing sports-cars for the road and an all-conquering machine on the racetrack. The next Supra has finally arrived and is the fifth generation A90 model of this car and the first to be sold under the Toyota GAZOO Racing branding.

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.
