Legend Returns To Bathurst For 12 Hour


The Nismo Athlete Global Team has arrived at Mount Panorama - and in doing so, has officially brought ‘Godzilla’ back to Bathurst.

The last time a factory-entered Nissan GT-R raced at Bathurst was in 1992, when Jim Richards and Mark Skaife earned their second Bathurst 1000 victory in as many years.

This weekend at the 2014 Bathurst 12 Hour, Nissan will aim to repeat that success with a line-up of four drivers from across the globe.

The team’s Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 and drivers Rick Kelly (Australia), Alex Buncombe (England), Wolfgang Reip (Belgium) and Katsumasa Chiyo (Japan) were unveiled in pit lane at the Mount Panorama circuit today.

Kelly, a two-time Bathurst 1000 winner, comes into his first-ever 12 Hour event fresh from a GT-R Nismo GT3 test at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia two weeks ago. With the valuable testing miles under his belt, coupled with his immense Bathurst experience, Kelly is looking forward to his GT sportscar debut.

International drivers Buncombe, Reip and Chiyo are more familiar with the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 but are each making their Bathurst debuts. The trio are already in awe of the 6.213km circuit after walking Mount Panorama with Kelly upon arrival. Along with Kelly, they are excited at the thought of driving the GT-R around the mountain in the first practice tomorrow (Friday) morning.

The Bathurst 12 Hour is Australia’s premier GT sportscar endurance race, with the GT-R Nismo GT3 set to compete against 18 other GT3-specification cars in the outright class. Over 40 cars will race in the ‘once around the clock’ event beginning Sunday morning.
