Motul Nismo Nissan GT-R to Compete in Tokachi 24hr Race

June 30, 2008

Coming up in July is the annual Tokachi 24hr held at Tokachi Speedway near Obihiro, Hokkaido – the northernmost island of Japan. This is Japan’s only 24hr endurance race and this year Nissan is fielding a standard R35 Nissan GT-R sponsored by Nismo, Motul and GTR-World.net among others. Driving the car will be Masami Kageyama, Tetsuya Tanaka and Kazuki Hoshino. The GT-R is entered into the International Production class.

This is an important race for the GT-R to show the world that it has the stamina it takes to compete in endurance events against some serious race cars. Hoping for a class win, good luck guys. The race is held over the 20th – 21st of July 2008.

Update: From Nismo’s press release on this it appears Nismo will be testing a variety of Nismo GT-R tuning parts on the GT-R. We will update when we know exactly what Nismo has in mind.
