Four years ago Godzilla returned to the Mountain, a year later it conquered it after their Japanese star driver Katsumasa Chiyo made a late race pass for the lead and won.
The Nissan GT-R’s final win at Mt Panorama was under controversial circumstances in 1992 when they won the 1000km ATCC race under red flag rules (on countback) when the car crashed at Forest Elbow in the wet conditions.
Nissan returned to Bathurst in 2014, but couldn’t tame it. Then in 2015, they conquered it with the help of Katsumasa Chiyo, Wolfgang Reip, and Florian Strauss.
Sadly in 2018, a factory-back GT-R NISMO will not return to the NSW circuit.
Relive the final 16 minutes of the 2015 edition.
