Nissan’s first Bathurst winner bound for Adelaide

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.

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