Ekanoo Smashing his own R35 Record!

(UPDATE) Ekanoo and the teams involved have just run a 7.30 sec 1/4 mile!

Not to mention this was on the first pass. Ekanoo racing are gaining records on a weekly basis at the moment, the latest record for his T1 GTR being a 7.366 1/4 Mile run at 331km/h. (206mph) Not only that but not long afterward a further 7.45 sec 1/4 mile at 325km/h (202mph) was run. This car is crazy fast and Ekanoo's team have no intentions of slowing down! Check out the video below of the pass. Turn the sound up, sit back and enjoy.

Backed By Dodson Motorsport in 2016.

2016 is set to be a big for competitive Motorsport, with well known companies like AMS developing builds that people were only dreaming about 5 years ago, we are expecting some seriously fast cars this year. As Dodson Motorsport have begun to back a few more builds this season we have decided to do regular updates to keep all of our followers informed as to what's happening where and answer the mind blowing question "How fast did you just say that went!?" when someone mentions the latest 1/4 mile drag time set...

Gidi Chamdi is a name familiar in the drag racing scene, No matter what the event is he is usually in attendance with a car carrying just enough horsepower to blow your wig off. Dodson Motorsport have backed Gidi's latest build the Alpha G, being built by AMS Performance. This car is set to have 2500 hp and pretty much leave your heart at the start line which excites us like a fresh engine build does!

A Name we are all familiar with.. Shepherd Transmissions. John Shepherd has taken the cover off of his GTR and started the late night wrenching to get his personal GTR back out there for the 2016 race season, and that's in between doing transmission build after transmission build for customer cars. Let's see a new record set...! ;)

Img: Top Speed Motorsports
TopSpeed Motorsports have received a sponsorship from Dodson Motorsport for the 2016 season and we look forward to seeing them out there! These guys are fast, and this 2016 season they are going to be even faster. Brace yourselves for awesome video footage and stunning photo's from these guys (as well as some incredible drag racing...)

There are a handful of other cars, teams and drivers Dodson Motorsport have helped for this coming race season. Kozmic Motorsport and their EVO X are set to keep the record their own this season with the help of a fresh Dodson Motorsport CSK + Clutch.

Chris Hill (Midwestmodded) is a driver with a large appearance in the aftermarket industry. With a sudden failure to his motor last year he has been down for a while, however his car will be appearing this season with a fresh motor build by Top Speed Motorsports and a transmission upgrade from Dodson Motorsport, look out for this car on 1320video

Img: Forged Performance
There are a select few companies that have also received a helping hand from Dodson Motorsport such as Forged Performance who also deserve all the recognition we can give. Forged Performance are popular for their circuit days, touge cruises and generally all things twisty and fast! if you live in the Atlanta area and enjoy your GTR definitely inquire about one of his days, meet the team and head along.  

While this post might be wrapping up for now, don't go too far... This year we will maintain a track on all the above cars, cars we have here in New Zealand and more to give everybody in every corner of the globe that follows Dodson Motorsport an insight into records set, events held and a general idea of how large the Motorsport world really is now. Stay Tuned!
