Nissan to return to Mount Panorama to defend Bathurst 12 Hour victory

Nissan will return to Mount Panorama next February to defend its Bathurst 12 Hour win with the all-conquering Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3. The NISMO Athlete Global Team will field a single factory entry for the third consecutive year, with support from the Nissan Motorsport V8 Supercars race team, as well as Nissan GT Academy Team RJN, the 2015 Blancpain GT Endurance Series PRO Class champions.


NISMO in Japan has built a brand-new 2015 specification Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 for the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour, with the car to remain in Australia permanently following the race. 2015 has been a remarkable year for the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, with race wins on four continents and championship victories in the Blancpain GT Endurance Series in Europe and GT300 Super GT Championship in Japan.


Last year’s Bathurst 12 Hour win was the start of an outstanding year for the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3, with wins following in the Blancpain GT Endurance Series in Europe, Super GT Championship in Japan and Pirelli World Challenge in the United States. While the traditional racing number of Nissan and NISMO globally is the #23, the entry will carry the #1 at the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour, to signify its status as defending race winner. The driver line-up for the #1 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 will be confirmed at a later date.
