Golden Anniversary! Ford Returning to Le Mans in 2016 with all new GT

Back on the attack 50 years after it's 1966 victory

Motorsports provide a lot of outstanding moments. Quite a few stand out as stuff of legend, like Ford taking the fight to Porsche and Ferrari by bringing in a 1-2-3 finish at the 24h du Le Mans in 1966.

Ford will bring the fight again next year with their new GT supercar to compete in LM GTE Pro class. They will compete in both the FIA World Endurance Championship and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship with a two-team, four-car effort – operated by Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates.

We look forward to seeing the GT with it’s Carbon Fiber Chassis and Twin Turbo Ecoboost V6… We only wish it was they used the truly awesome flat plane crank V8 recently debuted in the GT350R.

Available at the end of the month will be AN-4, AN-6, AN-8 and AN-10 Hose end Swivel fittings in straight, 45 and 90 degree configurations as well as Aluminum and Steel Weld in bungs. We’ve had prototypes of these items in weather and chemical testing since the beginning of the year and they are still in great condition. They’ve also been installed on our R33 Skyline GTS dragster and haven’t missed a beat, performing flawlessly at the 2015 Dragstarz race meet in Saint Lucia and looking as good as the day they were installed. Our aim is to introduce a quality part at an extremely competitive price point. We hope to expand our selection soon as long as sales go well, so let us know if there are sizes and configurations [...]

The Build

Race Prep Collage

We’ve been at work on our Skyline for a while now, so most of the larger hurdles had been out of the way well ahead of the competition. Aftermarket intake manifold? Check. Fuel Rail and 550cc injectors? Check. 400lph Fuel pump? On board. T66 Turbo and aftermarket exhaust manifold with custom down pipe? Where did you think we were spitting those flames from? 🙂

Mr.Murphy decided to [...]

International Women’s Day

Tribute to the ladies (especially the ones who share our passion!)

A3_Intl_women_tribute

Today March 8th 2015 marks International Women’s Day. Although we at A3 believe that a single day is not enough to mark the importance of woman’s contribution to the world, we’ve decided to make a tribute to a few of the prominent lady legends behind the wheel. Our collage display images of some of racing’s best, past and present.

Michelle Mouton- Also known as “the fastest girl ever”, she is a former WRC driver. With 4 WRC Rally wins and the 1982 WRC vice-champion, she has stood toe to toe with the best in the rallying world. Were it not for mechanical problems in the last race of the 1982 season, she probably would have prevented Walter Rohrl from becoming the first ever two time world rally champion.

Lella Lombardi- Maria Grazia “Lella” [...]
