SB Motorsport founder, Stephen “Baggsy” Biagioni says “This project has always been on the cards for SB Motorsport, ever since our initial GTR project. With racing currently on hold this was the break we needed to re-visit the idea and bring it to fruition. We have the best partners and they share our vision to create another great vehicle that will challenge the normality’s of what’s possible, this is going to be an exciting mix of performance meets practicality.” He continues “The Navara-R as we have already dubbed it, will challenge our in-house know-how. With this build, the aim is to keep the Navara road-legal, all the modcons of the vehicle, rather than creating a race-car chassis with minimal extras. I’m confident in our team here at SB Motorsport and honestly excited to see the development and work alongside our partners, who happen to be the World’s leading experts in their respected fields.”
