Mr Tony Quinn of VIP Petfoods fame was reported recently as having laid down a deposit on a Nissan GT-R GT3 to run at the Bathurst 12 hout next February...

Mr Quinn has won two Targa Tasmania tarmac rallies in an R35 GT-R.. amongst other competitive runs in a Mosler, various 911's, Aston Martin GT3, Evo Lancer and the like.

Sorted correctly, with the right copilots, the Nissan should be an outright contender against the 997 GT3R and Audi R8s...

I'd be surprised if the lineup was anything other then him, his son and Bairdo which ran this year. The car should be pretty well sorted, its being built by the factory and developed by JRM who race in GT1. Tony is building up quite a fleet, I'd be happy to look after the DBSR9 if he is no longer racing it...

That car is far to big to be racing in GT-Anything.

It has to be big. that is why it is called "GT". GRAND TOURING or GRAN TOURISMO. If it is a peeny tiny tiny then it would suit the LMP calss.

Alo big doesnt mean slow. IT is still super agile. You will see in the races. It will eat other "smaller cars".

and at this moment - although not yet confirmed - it is unlikely that the Nissan GT3 will be racing in the Total 24 Hours of Spa.

Spa 24H is a big race for a new car, maybe they dont want to do an AMR-One?

That would be a shame, although not surprising, seeing as though it hasnt raced before.

Nah, they shouldn't worry, a GT3 car is quicker than the current AMR-One

That Schulze Motorsport GT-R is one tough looking car!

It'd be great if Nissan ran the GTR GT3 at the 24hr, would be a nice replacement for the Falken R34 (where is that car these days?).

It's a shame Nissan and Lexus aren't doing a full factory assault in the 24 hours race.

BTW The Schulze Nissan looks great.
