A Nissan Skyline and GT-R store was engulfed in a massive fire recently, burning cars, parts, tools, almost everything to a crisp. The pictures show that most of the cars, including GT-Rs and Skyline have been destroyed. The shop, RB Motorsports, located at Wigan in the UK shared pictures of the incident on Facebook, notifying that a lot of customer cars have also been destroyed in the fire.
RB Motorsports assured their customers through the post on social media that the situation will be normalised as soon as possible.
“As people have probably seen over social media and the news, we have had a fire at our unit, Not sure on the full extent of the damage but as it is clear by pictures... 99% of everything has been destroyed unfortunately along with customers cars which we are most upset about, once we have more details we will publish them to keep our customer base informed,” the Facebook post read.
“We hope to be up and back to normal as soon as we can but as its understandable, its going to be a long time before were up and running again, 2 things we're thankful for is that no one has been hurt and secondly that all of the help and effort that has been offered by everyone involved, well and truly thankful for everyones efforts and help we've received. We'll keep everyone informed and hope to have emails up and running soon. Thanks to everyone again!”
