Yokohama, Japan - 9tro was back again at Fuji Speedway, Japan to bring you all the action that went down during the 20th edition of the NISMO Festival.
The annual fan appreciation day was first held in 1997 and features past and present stars and cars who have won major races and championships for Nissan and NISMO. The fan festival is all about people who love Nissan cars, the NISMO brand, and Nissan/NISMO racing DNA.
To celebrate this year's event, NISMO has launched its annual #NISMOments countdown on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and DriveTribe – highlighting the 23 greatest Nissan and NISMO moments of 2017.
Why 23 moments? The number 2 in Japanese is pronounced as "Ni" and number 3, "San." The brand uses this number in major championships across the globe including Super GT, Blancpain GT Series and the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
Highlights celebrated so far have included the remarkable remote control Nissan GT-R /C, the brand's return to victory in the IMSA championship in the US, Jann Mardenborough's impressive Super GT performance in Thailand, victory in the Asian Le Mans Series, top-10 Supercars results at Bathurst and podiums in Pirelli World Challenge.
But enough of our rambling, we will leave you with the highlights from the massive event and look forward to 2018’s edition of the highly popular festival!
