bonspeed's President is Co-Host on Season 2 of Car Warriors on SPEED
Brad Fanshaw has been filming the new season of Car Warriors for SPEED. The show that debuted in 2011 has been given a new format that pits shops against one another in a 48 hour challenge! The show features less time to build the cars, but provides a much better approach with more tech information and a better look at how these vehicles get built in just a mind-boggling 48 hours.
Fanshaw, brings over twenty-five years of professional custom car design and building experience to the show. As a business partner of the legendary Boyd Coddington from 1987 to 1996 their shop won the prestigious Grand National Roadster Show AMBR award four times. Since 1996 Fanshaw has won numerous awards on his own including both the GM and Ford Design Awards. Additionally, he has founded a leading forged aluminum wheel company, bonspeed Wheels with rock star Michael Anthony of Van Halen and Chickenfoot fame.
Brad Fanshaw brings his management, design and building talents to the show while he is allowed to flex his on-camera presence. The producers of Car Warriors have chosen Fanshaw to provide teams his expert advice during each build and provide the audience a while-it-happens perspective from his first-hand view. The show is hosted by Jimmy Shine and the two interact throughout each episode along with another lead tech.
Car Warriors will begin airing on SPEED in February 2012.
