    KPGC10 to be displayed at 2012 Le Mans Classic event

    Just a quick heads-up for those who may be interested:

    My 1971 KPGC10 'Hakosuka' Skyline GT-R 2-door Hard Top race car is to be displayed by Nissan France on their stand at the 2012 Le Mans Classic event, which runs from 6th to 8th of July:

    http://www.lemansclassic.com/en/s01_...01p01_home.php

    As far as I'm aware, this will be the first time a genuine KPGC10 has set foot on French soil. First time on European mainland, in fact.

    I'm hoping that the weather will be good enough to enable the car to be displayed - for at least some of the time - with its bonnet up, so that visitors to the stand can see the 'heart' of the original GT-R - the S20 twin cam engine. If not, and I'm around, I'll open it for viewing ( rain or shine! ) for anyone who asks.



    Bit of a long shot that anyone who regularly visits this forum might be at the Le Mans Classic event, but you never know.....!

    Cheers,
    Alan T.

    This year at Le Mans Classic, 109000 spectators, 450 classic race cars racing all night long, 8000 club cars, and a lot of rain. It's such a big event that you can't see everything.

    some pics taken from the datsun-france forum:
