We spotted Matty Lud’s street driven Datsun 1200 competing at the Australian Nationals at Calder Park.
The Datsun is powered by a Promaz 13B bridge port rotary engine and garrett turbocharger with power shifting through a modified Mazda gearbox. The Ute had run a best of nine forty so Matt was looking to improve on that.
