A long time client and friend of ours recently decided while he certainly enjoyed doing HPDE track events in his GT-R, he felt the desire for some real competition where he could do battle against other drivers on a level playing field. The choice was made to pick up an inexpensive BMW 3 Series for the ultra-competitive NASA Spec E30 Class. The biggest concern when it came to building a car for wheel-to-wheel racing is driver safety. This is an area where things must be done the right way, the first time. That is why we were trusted in the fabrication of this custom roll cage. With many years of competitive motorsports experience and an extremely talented fabrication department we were more than capable of taking on this assignment. Because fabrication and machining work requests ample amounts of open shop space, we invested in a second building last year just five minutes down the road from our main location. The team went to work designing a 6-point cage that would not only stiffen up this 20+ year old chassis but keep its the driver safe should this spec E30 trade a little more than paint. This cage was built using 1.75" DOM .095 inch wall roll cage tubing and was built within the very rigid constraints of NASA's Spec E30 Class. NASCAR style door bars further protect the driver by keeping more spacial separation between door bar and driver. We have quite a bit more finish work to do on the cage, but we wanted to share some of our progress thus far.
While we are known for the Nissan GT-R and other high performance late model imports our fabrication department has the skill, knowledge and experience to assist you in any track day or competitive race car builds.
