The Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge held over October 17–18, 2014, feels like it was just last weekend. We saw Under Suzuki battling his way to second place at the event, proving just how competitive his privateer Nissan Silvia is.

After such an epic event you’d think Under Suzuki would retire the Silvia for the year, strip it down, and start the rebuild process for next year's efforts, but no, he did the complete opposite — he beat the Tsukuba Time Attack record, again, with a time of 52.363 seconds. Suzuki-San set out to better his ‘Tuner Car’-on-street-tyres record.

Check out the in-car footage to see how the record was broken. It’s safe to say the man can drive.

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
