NISMO Festival 2013

This is an annual festival that Nissan Motorsports puts on in Japan.  It went away in 2012 during the move of NISMO to its new headquarters but now its back.

As is typical Nissan brought out tons of vintage machinery and drivers for both display and use.  Included in these (and of most interest to me) is one of the old African Safari Rally 240Zs.

  A drifting event and an exhibition race featuring identically prepped GT-Rs was just some of the action.  Some 32,000+ enthusiasts turned out for the event.  I do need to ask...is there a more beautiful background for a race track than what is present for the Fuji Speedway??  If there is, I'd like to see it...
