Nissan GT1 Joins Hill Climb for Demonstration Run

Monday 13 June 2016

The incredible Nissan R35 Nismo FIA GT1, one of just four of its kind, will take to the Hill Climb course as part of our lunchtime demonstration runs this July.

Built by Nismo, Nissan’s in-house motorsport division, the Nissan GT1 was developed to compete in 2009’s FIA GT1 World Championship. Only four cars were developed by the team, and were based on the GTR road car.

It first competed in 2009 on four separate occasions, before entering the full championship in 2010. Two years after its competition debut, Michael Krumm drove the GT1 to victory and became the FIA GTR World Champion.

With a powerful V8 engine, the GT1 can produce up to 600bhp and has a top speed of 198mph. Although it won’t quite reach speeds like that on the Hill Climb course as a demonstration car, it’s definitely capable of putting on a show!

Demonstration runs take place on both days of the Chateau Impney Hill Climb during the lunchtime break, and you can see the Nissan GT1 in action on both Saturday and Sunday.
