Down at Phillip Island today the Nissan Motorsport team are having a bit of a test and photo day, unboxing a brand new baby and showing off a slick new paint job too.
Their new baby is the 2016 Bathurst 12 hour contender, the Nissan GT-R GT3 which is literally brand new out of the box not only to compete at Bathurst but then stay in Australia under the ownership of Nissan Australia for show purposes.
Drivers are at the track undertaking a day of testing ahead of the 12 hour getting the kinks ironed out and team all sorted with practice stops and final checks.
Also down here at Phillip Island is Michael Caruso’s 2016 V8 Supercar. Sporting a similar yet updated livery it’s the first time showing the new car design to the media, and Michael Caruso for one seems pretty happy, relaxed but ready to race.
