2013-02-11 10:02

BIGGER AND BETTER FOR 2013: The Nissan GT-R GT3 is just one of the cars Nissan fans are are looking forward to at the 16th annual Nismo Fest 2013.

TOKYO, Japan - With the news of the Nissan Juke Nismo already in production and the unveiling of the Nismo 370Z, enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating the event which pays tributes to Nissan's performance division – the Nismo Festival.

The automaker's heritage stems from the 1960s and since 1997 Nismo has held a festival to thank its loyal fans for their support.

NISMO CRASH COURSE 

Traditionally held just to the south of Tokyo, the Fuji Speedway in Shizuoka Prefecture is the perfect stage at the foothills of Mount Fuji. The family event sees 30 000 fans enjoying Nismo-related activities.

Current Nismo cars such as the GT-R Super GT, FIA GT1 and futuristic Nissan LEAF Nismo RC thrill spectators with exhibitions runs but the historic machines stir just as much emotion on track.

Top racing drivers and celebrities hold hot laps for fans. There’s even a crash track course where drivers teach fans about the 16 bends and infamous 1.5km straight - one of the longest stretches in world motorsport.

The Nismo Festival started 16 years ago in 1997 and celebrated it’s 15th event in 2011. Since Nismo fans had to wait a bit longer for the next fest, Nismo is promising a showdown of note for 2013.

Further details will be announced soon.

*Except in 2012 when they moved offices.
