NISMO fans will have an opportunity to get up close with their favorite Nissan race cars and drivers at the 22nd annual NISMO Festival on Dec. 8 at Japan’s Fuji Speedway.

This year’s event highlights the 50th anniversary of Nissan’s legendary GT-R and Z models. To represent the Nissan GT-R, the festival will feature the KPGC10 “Hakosuka” Skyline 2000 GT-R, which won the JAF GP (Japan Automobile Federation Grand Prix) in 1969; the legendary Group A BNR32 Skyline GT-R; and the 2019 Super GT GT-R race cars. The festivities will also highlight the Nissan Fairlady Z, with several examples ranging from road cruisers to fully bespoke racing machines representing NISMO’s rich history.

Current Nissan and NISMO cars that embody the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, the company’s approach to changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated with society, will also be on display, as well as the new, all-electric Formula E race car and the LEAF NISMO RC – both sporting a new kimono-inspired livery.

NISMO Festival-goers can experience an exhilarating “time attack” event with specially tuned GT-Rs and walk around the first “owner’s parking” area, made exclusive for owners to park their prized GT-R or Z and share their passion with each other. Fans of all ages can see, breathe and experience the power and passion that is Nissan and NISMO.

“The NISMO Festival is an event we have nurtured with great care,” said NISMO President Takao Katagiri, who oversees Nissan’s NISMO road car business. “I hope many of our fans, drivers, team directors, team staff and NISMO employees will join us in creating a fun day again this year.”

In addition to course events, there will be talk shows, goods and memorabilia booths featuring limited race-used items, as well as engaging family-oriented areas.
