Hello there JNC.

After reading a thread posted by HS30-H regarding the 50 Victories of PGC10 / KPGC10 Skyline GT-R it got me wondering, is there anyone (Alan included if you still read JNC) who has as much knowledge on the bluebird?

I've done my bit and found a little, either there isn't much info out there (admittedly the Bluebird isn't as popular as the Skyline so probably even less has been translated) or I'm looking in all the wrong places.

I know they raced in the Touring-a Class(~1600cc) and they were competitive. JAF website run through Google translate has been a big help, but trying to find video, pictures and publication of the time seem very difficult as most of the focus was in the bigger engined cars.

JAF Results

Search terms like: '71年富士グラン・チャンピオン・シリーズ第5戦富士マスターズ250キロレース bring up loads of Skyline related stuff but hardly any info for the Bluebird, even though JAF say that 4 Bluebirds finished the race.

Over to you guys.

p.s I'm not interested in American racing history, sorry.

Like you said, there is not much out there... I found these images on a Nissan site a few years ago and saved them:

The shot of the engine compartment featuring a FIA head is particularly interesting:

One on the track:

Hope this helps,
