OYAMA, Japan – The 20th running of the NISMO Festival supported by Motul showcased the fan favorite Nissan GT-R and the NISMO brand in Japan yesterday with more than 28,000 fans on site and thousands more tuning into the live stream on YouTube.

Along with the traditional NISMO Grand Prix race featuring entries from Super GT, Super Taikyu and Europe’s Blancpain GT Series championships, the event also included a Racing GT-R Heritage Run. The Heritage Run featured 16 famous GT-Rs from Nissan’s racing past dating back to the Skyline HT 2000 GT-R from the late 60s.

Other cars taking part were the Group A-spec Nissan Skyline GT-R R32, including the Calsonic version driven by NISMO legend Kazuyoshi Hoshino.

The R32 won an incredible 29 consecutive races in Japan and was recently voted by fans in the #NISMOtop20 poll on Twitter as the greatest Nissan/NISMO racecar of all time.
