Onboard The Calsonic R32 Skyline GT-R

If there’s one machine that defined Japanese touring car racing during the Group A era, it’s the Nissan Skyline GT-R. And when it comes to race-spec BNR32s, the Calsonic car is in a league of its own.

The Nismo Festival, held annually at Fuji Speedway in Japan, is a staple event on the Speedhunting calendar, and when Blake checked out the 2016 edition last December there were plenty of famous Nissan race cars on display – including the iconic blue and white GT-R.

Nissan didn’t just show the car though – it had a race driver get behind the wheel and put in some demonstration laps. They weren’t at anywhere near race pace, but the onboard video above is worth checking out all the same, if only for the sound of the Grp.A-spec RB26DETT singing up front.

Awesome car and great to see it on the track, but someone please take an Aussie Winfield Group A GTR to the festival and put the cat among the pigeons! Will the Aussie vs Japan GTR Group A question ever be answered?...
