Hi All,

The Tuners Group is very pleased to announce that Mark Berry's Advan / Hi Octane Racing R34 GT-R will be running one of our high downforce pre-preg carbon fibre DJ Engineering rear wings at the 2011 World Time Attack Challenge.

DJ Engineering wings are designed by world renowned wing designer and highly respected aerodynamics and racing author Simon McBeath, and are used by highly respected and championship winning teams including Lotus Motorsport (the factory Lotus motorsport department), Prodrive, RLR MSport, Juno (DJ wings are standard fitment on all Juno's), and Matech (Matech were the FIA GT3 Champions in 2008 and FIA GT3 Championship Runners Up in 2009).

The DJ Engineering wing was selected for the R34 by Mark and an independent Formula One designer and aerodynamicist who is working with Mark's team this year, following a rigorous wing selection process which involved analysis of a number of wings from different manufacturers. So we are delighted that the DJ Engineering wing has been selected as the winner of that selection process.

Mark Berry, owner and driver of the Advan / Hi Octane Racing R34 GT-R said about the new wing:


"We are very excited to be running the DJ Engineering SM203 dual element wing from DJ Engineering & The Tuners Group on the Advan / Hi Octane Racing R34 GTR.

This year the car is undergoing some major changes with the aero design to assist with more downforce, which is why we have chosen the SM203 dual element wing.

We have found the downforce loads of the SM203 dual element will complement the total package of the cars new aero package.

I am very much looking forward to hitting the track at World Time Attack 2011."
