THE 2024 Adelaide Motorsport Festival will now feature both of Nissan’s Bathurst 1000-conquering Skylines.

The GT-R R32 which Jim Richards and Mark Skaife piloted to a controversial Mount Panorama victory in 1992 had already been confirmed for next year’s Adelaide event.

Now, the Gibson Motorsport turbocharged beast in which Richards/Skaife won the 1991 Great Race will join it for the March 16-17 showcase.

The Adelaide Motorsport Festival was reborn earlier this year, with countless historic cars turning up at its revival edition – not to mention Formula 1 star Valtteri Bottas.

Among the various other cars confirmed for the 2024 running is a V10 Benetton B200 which raced in the 2000 Formula 1 world championship.

Adelaide will also host the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship decider next month, across November 23-26.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
