March 01, 20132 min read
MotorTrend Magazine teamed up with the Nissan's Project 370Z for a contest to find a challenge car to go head to head at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In case you're not familiar with Project 370Z it was a car built by social media in a marketing campaign by Nissan. The online community picked every part chosen to modify a stock Nissan 370Z through many rounds of voting on Facebook from wheels and tires to suspension and engine components and everything in between. After completing the build and debuting the car last year at ZDayz, MotorTrend Magazine decided it would make for a good time to search America for a challenger Z car to take on the Project 370Z at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The entry for the contest ended last night at 11:59pm and with our entry being sent at 11:57pm we assumed we were at the very best a shot in the dark....
But sure enough, this afternoon the 30 some finalists were announced on Facebook and we were one of them!!!!! Now the finalists will be reviewed by Nissan's judges and the winner will be announced on March 3rd. Hopefully then with a little bit more luck we will win the contest and have the car shipped out, we will be flown out to Las Vegas and see how our SOHO Motorsports 350Z stacks up against Nissan Project 370Z! We are keeping our finger's crossed, wish us luck!
Update (3/8/13): Unfortunately we didnt win but we were one of the three finalists and glad to be a part of the competition. We would have loved to gone out to Las Vegas and win but it wasn't meant to be, maybe next time!
