Our friends over at SP Engineering helped CRP/Hawk Racing with their World Challenge GT class Nissan GT-R's after their race at Long Beach Grand Prix. The CRP/Hawk Racing GT-R's have been converted to rear wheel drive with a Hewland sequential transaxle. So far this year they have run two races with the cars in what they are calling a development year. World Challenge is a tough race series, and getting a new car competitive takes time.

As mentioned earlier, CRP brought in both of their GT-R’s for us to further calibrate. SP Engineering’s senior technician Naoto Negishi, being a former employee of Sakata Motorsports, has vast experiences with many Motec systems; with skills ranging from ECU calibration to data acquisition and race support. Naoto has completed years of tunes with 100% satisfaction from motorsport teams and drivers from all around the world. SPE’s COBB tuner Kristian Wong, helped out alongside with Naoto in the tuning process for the CRP GT-R’s. Fuel mapping, ignition mapping and boost control strategies were reviewed and fine tuned.
