Infiniti Wins in F1 and Nissan Wins in GT1 as well...

While Infiniti was over in Turkey wth Vettel and Webber taking 1st and 2nd in the F1 race there, a "true" Nissan effort was back in Portugal at Circuito Algarve to contest the third FIA GT1 event of 2011.

Much as at the Turkish Grand Prix, the Nissans dominated qualifying with the four GT-Rs taking positions 1, 2, 3 and 8th.

The race ended similar to the qualifying with the #23 of JR Motorsports (sister team to Sumo Power) taking the win when the #22 JRM GT-R (the polesitter) developed a gearbox issue dropped from its substantial lead and finished 12th out of the 18 entries.  The other Nissan GT-Rs of the Sumo Power team would grab 3rd and 7th on the day rounding out a very strong race for Nissan.
