Thanks to you guys who have been following this series of articles. We’re going to wrap it up today with a look at some of the celebration side of Nismo Festival. As you may know, Nismo Festival sits right at the far end of the SuperGT season and is a celebration of the season past.
So one of the final events is the fan thankyou and closing ceremony where everyone associated with SuperGT, and now, FIA GT racing for Nismo will get out on the circuit to hear the roar of the fans and give thanks for their support. The drivers themselves will first roll up in their respective rides. Burnouts optional…
Once assembled the fans will salute them, chanting Nissan and waving giant banners adorned with Nissan, GT-R and team emblems. Following this, we hear from team bosses of each SuperGT team as well as the Nismo SuperGT and FIA GT team managers.
At the end of the festivities, each of the SuperGT drivers gets to throw some small gifts into the crowd to again show thanks and wrap up the Festival.
And on that note I want to wrap up the Nismo Festival 2009 coverage from GTRBlog too. It was a great festival this year with a couple of sneak peaks scooped and a lot of friends caught up with. Looking forward to the next big show now which is litterally right around the corner. January 15th – 17th at Makuhari Messe – you got it – it’s Tokyo AutoSalon 2010.
For now, though, I’ll leave you with the remainder of the eye candy from the closing of Nismo Festival 2009!
