August 1, 2009

Nismo Festival is an amazing event held each year at Fuji Speedway, a few hours outside Tokyo in Japan. A celebration of all things Nissan Motorsports related, from historic racing cars to the latest and greatest specification GT racing cars. This is the 13th year of the Festival and promises to be a good one, perhaps the best yet.

In a press release this week, Nismo have officially penned the date to be Sunday, the 6th of December 2009. This year Nismo continue on from last year’s celebration of the Nissan GT-R with the second “Challenge R” theme festival. We expect to see the entire lineup of SuperGT GT500 GT-Rs, Nismo FIA GT1 2010 GT-R, the Tokachi 24hrs prepared Nissan GT-R, even the GT-R SpecV on the circuit and on display.

Of course each year also brings the Nismo Garage Sale which, if you plan to try get something, remember to plan ahead!

Attending Nismo Festival 2008 was an amazing experience. I made the trip to Japan specifically for Nismo Festival and was not disappointed. Highly recommended especially if you’ll be there for some other purpose already. While you’re there you can visit Mt. Fuji (probably can’t climb it at that time of year though) and the surrounding areas which themselves make for a great holiday.

Tickets will be available soon, we’ll update you when they are. For now you can browse my photo galleries from Nismo Festival 2008 at this link.
