NZ Performance Car - - 1990 Nissan Skyline Gt-R (R32) - WORDS: MAR­CUS GIB­SON PHO­TOS: ROD DUNN

No race car chas­sis in his­tory has en­joyed the suc­cess that the group A R3 GT-R has world­wide. To say the car dom­i­nated the tour­ing-car rac­ing of a time would be a gross un­der­state­ment - it lit­er­ally em­bar­rassed the com­pe­ti­tion and left them all with their pants down, stug­gling to play catch up. In Ja­pan, the cars won every Ja­panese tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship (JTCC) race in a four-sea­son-long win­ning streak. And, in Aus­tralia, they ce­mented the leg­end with three back-to-back Aus­tralian tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship (ATCCs) and two Bathurst wins the Gib­son Mo­tor­sport (GMS)- pre­pared Nissan Mo­tor­sport en­tries.
