Nissan Motorsports Exhibition 2008

nissanmsexpo.jpgIf you’re lucky enough to be in Japan on March 1-2, head over to the Nissan Motorsports Exhibition 2008 at the Red Brick Warehouse and Yokohama Marine Disaster Prevention Complex. It’s an annual event Nissan Japan puts on to celebrate all things racing and they typically pull out a good selection of cars both old and new from their collection for display.

This year’s theme is, naturally, all about the Skyline GT-R, as the birthday party continues in full swing. A full range of historic GT-Rs, in both production and racing form, is expected. They’ll even hoon it up a bit in actual race cars, and a Super GT-spec Nissan GT-R will be making demo runs. Other attractions include a “pitwork demo,” Nissan Collection merchandise, and a dedicated kids zone. Gotta start them off early, you know.

UPDATE:  Official website for the event now up.

    what is the name of the car Nissan built for the Saudis that had a carborated V6 engine? I think it was in the 1987 era……..Thanks

    I’m not familiar with Saudi markets, but just to venture a wild guess… Laurel, Cedric or Gloria maybe?
