ROSSLYN, South Africa – The Nissan GT-R remains the fastest supercar at the Simola Hill Climb in South Africa, as proven by Wilhelm Baard, Reghard Roets and the R35 Nissan GT‑R.

Baard repeated his successful 2011 Simola King of the Hill win by shattering the 40-second barrier on the last shootout-run for a time of 39.892 seconds. It is the first time in the history of the competition that a supercar managed to break this psychological barrier on the mountain road.

“I dedicate this win to all of the Nissan team members who have put so much effort into preparing our R35 GT-R for this competition,” said Baard. “What we achieved today is thanks to many months of preparation and practice.”
