The 17th annual Nismo Festival at Fuji Speedway was a resounding success, with more than 35,000 Nissan fans showing up to enjoy the event.
This year, the festival focused on the 30th anniversary of Nismo. More than 100 owners of Nismo grade cars, including the Juke and GT-R, performed a parade lap around the iconic speedway. This was followed by a historic car demo run, several exhibition races, a synchronization performance show, and various promotional events.
The biggest event of the day was the “Road to Le Mans” ceremony, which commemorated Nissan’s return to the legendary competition with a look back at the automaker’s history in Le Mans. Classic Nissan racers performed a parade run around the course, after which a genuine battle took place between GT500, GT3, and ST3-class racers.
The day closed with the Nismo 30th Memorial Ceremony & Finale, which involved an announcement from NISMO CEO Shoichi Miyatani, who thanked the fans for their support in another successful Nissan year and looked forward for more to come.
