For our May track event we had the opportunity to make the excursion to Mid Ohio Sports Car Course with Chin Motorsports. This was our inaugural visit to Mid Ohio, one of the signature racing circuits in the country. While the skies opened up with rain on both mornings, the drivers took it in stride and used the opportunity to abuse more than one airport rental car. While the cool morning temperatures caught us by surprise, the afternoon weather was near perfect. This venue brought out some new track machines we had not seen, as well as a new group of drivers outside our normal circuits for us to meet. We made a lot of new friends, and championed a new driver hang out at the local Cheddars! Mid Ohio has one of the finest infield layouts, allowing great spectator views. We will definitely mark our calendars and make this an annual event with Forged Performance and Chin Motorsports.
The year 2013 marked the 10th Anniversary of ZDayZ, which proved by far, to be the biggest and best yet! Just to think that an event that started out with just 30 local attendees, has grown to over 1200 from all over the world is an amazing accomplishment and demonstrates just how strong the Nissan sports car community is. Forged Performance continued its tradition of partnering with ZDayZ as a major sponsor. Many mountain runs were made on the Dragon by a wide variety of Nissans echoing sounds throughout the hills. Thanks to all who stopped by our tent to chat about Nissans, the Dragon and all things automotive. We were blown away by the amount of camaraderie displayed among the ZDayZ fans. We had such a great time and made so many new friends that we can’t wait till next year! Forged would like to thank all the sponsors and volunteers that gave their time and resources to make this year’s event a reality. Fast Intentions, Cobb Tuning, and Competition Clutch made significant contributions to making the 2013 ZDAYZ, the best yet. All we can say about ZDayz is if you have not yet been, then you are missing out!
We cant wait to see everyone next year!
