PPG-Equipped GTR Blitzes Macau
Phillip Yau's Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes-equipped KC Racing Nissan R35 GTR won the recent Suncity Group Macau Road Sport Challenge – with the "bulletproof" PPG R35 GTR gear kit installed. Yau’s emphatic win, against some of the best Road Sport Challenge cars in Asia, at one of the most challenging world circuits ('Guia' 3.8-mile street circuit), was achieved using the reliable, durable, slick and quiet Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG), heavy duty 1-6 Helical Synchro Gearset. The lightweight, "off the shelf," direct fit Nissan R35 GTR kit is available as a full six-speed helical synchro kit, or as a separate 1st gear helical synchro kit, and is suitable for motorsport, tuned street cars or regular road using Nissan GTR’s. Hong Kong’s Phillip Yau drove his PPG-equipped Nissan R35 GTR to close victory by 3.452 seconds in the Suncity Group Macau Road Sport Challenge, ahead of Japan’s Tatsuya Tanigawa in a Mazda LA-SE3P RX-8 and Kenneth Look, also of Hong Kong, in a Subaru Impreza GDB. Yau’s R35 GTR qualified in forth and had a nightmare race start – stalling on the grid – but fought his way back through the 34-car field, into a two-way battle for victory with pole-sitter Nattavude Charoensukhawatana of Thailand, driving a Mitsubishi Evolution 9, with Yau passing him to victory on lap nine. Simon Pfitzner, Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes said: “We are really pleased for KC Racing (PPG Asia Distributors) and Phillip Yau on their excellent Macau win, against some of the best road sport racing cars and teams in the sport. And we know a large part of that success is down to our incredible PPG R35 GTR helical six-speed gear kit. The R35 GTR Pfitzner kit – like all our championship winning products – is proving to be effective, durable, reliable and dominant in all forms of motorsport. And Phillip Yau’s win in Macau adds further evidence to this case. The kit is a straight forward “off the shelf” fit, is incredible value and we believe, is the best on the market. Why buy anything else? Fit what wins… PPG.”
