FANS in Japan at this week’s NISMO Festival will get their first chance to see the Nissan e.dams Formula E car at Fuji International Speedway.
The 21st annual fan appreciation event on December 2 will feature teams and drivers running some of the greatest cars in Nissan’s 60 years of global motorsports history, as well as heritage models and the latest NISMO road cars.
To celebrate Nissan’s six decades of global motorsports participation – starting with the class victory at the Australian Rally in 1958 – the festival will feature more than 50 cars that have competed globally and in Japan: rally cars from the 1950s to the 1980s, prototype cars from the 1990s, and current GT cars.
The Formula E car will be featured along with an all-new, dynamic Nissan EV show. Other events include the annual Z-challenge race, the Nissan Historic exhibition race, an historic car demo run, and the annual NISMO GP which features cars from both Super GT and Super Taikyu
NISMO has also been counting down to the event with its annual 23-day #NISMOments countdown on @NISMO social media highlighting major achievements in 2018.
NISMO Festival action begins at 8:00 am local time in Japan on Sunday, December 2; midnight CET in Europe; 23:00 in the UK; 18:00 US Eastern; and 15:00 US Pacific.
