Bang & Lazar began its life in late 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The two co-founders, Peter and Dmitry, met thanks to a common friend in the car scene. Their common passion for cars and driving has quickly lead to a friendship. They soon found themselves jumping into their first joint project - a restoration of an old Miata, a 1.8 NBFL from 2002.
Soon after Peter and Dmitry realized that they equally share a passion for automotive performance engineering. The joint desire to develop their hobby further lead the two car guys to try their hand at fabricating parts not just for themselves, but for others.
With Peter dailying an NB, Dmitry having owned an NC before, and now a joint Mk2.5 NB project, it quicly became clear that Miata would become the first test platform for new venture.
Soon after, the founders decided to also take on the FT-86 platform, thanks to Dmitry dailying and tracking a GT86. And it's hard to imagine two other platforms that share as much common philosophy as MX5 / Miata and GT86 / BRZ / FRS, so the two go well together really well.
Both Peter and Dmitry are passionate not just about tuning, but about racing. Peter's roots are in the karting world, where he had enjoyed early successes. Dmitry is an avid track enthusiast, with many track days under his belt, and a recent experience in a local racing series.
