GT-R Festival Open Day at Nissan Technical College Aichi

August 4, 2008 Comments off

The Nissan Technical College has four campuses around Japan. Tochigi (at the plant where the GT-R is manufactured) Yokohama, Aichi and Kyoto. The Aichi campus held an open day this weekend and invited the community in to check the school out as well as get a chance to look and learn about GT-Rs.

The R35 represented along with KPGC10 GT-R, an R34 GT-R N1, the retired R34 GT500 car. There was also this insane RB26 (naturally aspirated) powered oldschool Z giving a decent burnout lesson to all the kids.

Why don’t they have schools like this near me? More photos from the day after the jump.
