After exactly 30 years away from the public eye, Nissan has brought one of its most iconic motorsport machines back to life. The stunning 1987 Nissan Patrol Fanta Limon Paris-Dakar rally car has been fully restored to its former glory, and made an emotional return to its spiritual home in the sand dunes of the Saharan desert.
Toyota GAZOO Racing returned to the podium with second and third-place finishes in the 6 Hours of Shanghai, the penultimate race of the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season.
Nissan’s participation in this year’s Rally Jeddah began with dominating the provisional entry lists. This strong presence continued throughout the competition, with results that reflected the brand’s dominance in the motorsports scene. The two-day race which takes place over a short super special stage on the first day, and a 220km desert stage on the second, concluded its final stages on Friday November 18th 2016.
