Both Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 Bathurst winners on track together

The 2024 Adelaide Motorsport Festival will feature both Bathurst-winning Nissan Skyline GT-R R32s, with the 1991 Bathurst 1000 winner joining the 1992 Bathurst 1000 winner at the event.

The Skyline GT-R R32 became the first Japanese car to win the Bathurst 1000 when Jim Richards and Mark Skaife triumphed at Mount Panorama in 1991, in a record race time that stood for 19 years.

The 1991 and 1992 Skyline GT-R R32 were restored to their original liveries and specifications, ahead of their appearances at the 2024 Adelaide Motorsport Festival on March 16 and 17.

The Gibson Motorsport-run turbocharged Skyline GT-R R32s won both the Australian Touring Car Championship and Bathurst 1000 in 1991 and 1992, dominating in the latter years of the Group A era of Australian touring cars.

The Skyline GT-R R32s were devastatingly quick, featuring all-wheel-drive and a 2.6-litre twin-turbo straight six engine.

Categories featuring Formula 1, V8 Supercars, Group C and A touring cars, sportscars, IndyCars and more will again feature over the course of the Adelaide Motorsport Festival, with more news on categories, star cars and drivers and on and off-track activations coming soon.
