Two Nissan Powered Jimco Buggies Take 1st and 2nd At Hyden 450

The first round of the '13 Australian Off Road Championship (AORC) was the Hyden 450 that ran on the last weekend of March.

Winning the event??  An Jimco chassis buggie running a Nissan twin turbo VQ35 driven by Shannon Rentsch.

Second place?  Another Jimco buggie pushed by another twin turbo VQ35 and this time driven by Matt Hanson.

Six place was also VQ35 powered, though this time in a GET Performance buggie.  At some point we'll start to see more of these Nissan powered buggies in the desert and short course races over here in the States but I guess for now we'll be satisfied with shipping the Aussies a lot of championship winning platforms like the Jimcos and the Geiser Trophy Truck that took the win in the Extreme 2WD class.
