The Making of the Triple Eight: Project Sandman Tribute Edition Holden V8 Supercar
The Triple Eight Project Sandman Tribute Edition is the product of the
combination of one idea, an Australian motoring icon, six months of blood,
sweat and tears and one V8 Supercar team.
Born out of the Triple Eight Race Engineering stable in Brisbane,
Australia, the vehicle is a one-off concept with a twist. With equal parts
tribute and racing technology, the Triple Eight Project Sandman Tribute
Edition is a two-seater, 700HP beast, with more power, straight-line speed
and technology than your standard V8 Supercar.
Taking influence from the pinnacles of modern motorsport, Project Sandman
uses an F1-inspired paddle shift gear box and fly by wire throttle system
ensuring that the vehicle continues to push the boundaries of Australia's
premier motorsports category, V8 Supercars. Project Sandman is capable of
reaching speeds of over 300km/h while maintaining the pure thrill and
adrenaline rush of a Red Bull Racing Australia V8 Supercar.

Stadium Drift R3 - Gemini's last event for a while
7th-8th September, 2012: Stadium Drift SA Round 3.
Having broken a timing chain 6 days earlier at Mallala Matsuri, Eli was
rushing to get the car fixed in time, while Cameron had to change his
gearbox. Both of them finished in time for Stadium Drift's Friday practice,
but the improvised timing case gasket on the Gemini blew after a few runs.
Our awesome friends Kat and Justin (Kat Philcox Photography and Justin
Codr) convinced Eli to try to fix the Gemini overnight, and provided a
garage, food, and extra hands to get the car fixed. HUGE THANKS to them, as
well as Jono B for helping fix the Gemini overnight!
The next day proved interesting. The timing case gasket was fixed, but the
sump gasket (having now been re-used three times) was totally stuffed. Eli
was under the car throughout the warm-up session, and only just made his
first battle on cold tyres. The rear end grip was wrong for the whole first
session, and he didn't come anywhere near the top 8. Cam on the other hand
did quite well, but also missed out on the top 8. Solid rear cradle bushes
helped with handling, and Cam was starting to look more comfortable in his
car. Later in the day, the Gemini's oil leak worsened until it was deemed
too bad to be allowed on track.
This will be the last event the Gemini attends for some time. It's time for
some major work, which will hopefully include a roll cage, and some
performance upgrades. Make sure you SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss out on the
