A couple of Nissans but for very different purposes. One for drifting, the other for targas.  So we can say that one is always sideways the other needs to be on the straight and narrow – and doesn’t know what is around the next corner.

A URD BMW M88 L6 3500 cc N/A that was run in various European and American sportscar races in the late 80s.  It didn’t see a lot of success but grabbed a few top 5s. It competed at Daytona and Sebring without luck
