As we bid farewell to 2015, we bid farewell to a serious selection of world firsts, records and titles. With the likes of AMS, T1 Race Developments, ETS and a handful of other tuning shops all leading the way with the R35 GTR platform, competition won't stop in 2016 and we are more excited than ever. Already lined up for 2016 there are a number of events that have everyone anxiously waiting to see what the leaders in the world of Motorsport can achieve and who might come out of the shadows and take everybody by surprise.
Before Dodson Motorsport end the year of 2015, we would like to congratulate a few recent achievements by dealers, customers and friends...

This might be a few weeks late but we are happy to see another Alpha 16 joining the 7 second club! Sean Ivey of Ivey Technologies LLC in New Jersey has just recently run a 7.91 second 1/4 Mile at a healthy 183 mph. That's enough to put a smile on anybodies face, Ivey Technologies is a long standing GTR dealer for Dodson Motorsport and his personal car uses a Dodson Transmission.

Dodson Motorsport customer Ian Clegg of Xtreme Performance has recently stepped into the R35 GTR game and is on his way to future top rankings here in New Zealand. Recently down at a series called NZ Super-lap, Rene Vermeer of NZPC snapped this photo along with the top photo of Ian driving his way to a surprising lap time around Pukekohe of 1.12571 minutes. Keeping in mind this is someone who has just stepped into the GTR and series in general! Keep an eye out for this particular GTR this coming year as not only the car progresses but his driving as well..
That just about wraps up 2015 here, with the beginning of next year already very promising with new product release for most platforms and new records to be set we are in for an exciting 2016.
From the team here at Dodson Motorsport, Happy Holidays!
