240 Factory Team Effort

i know back in the day when Nissan had factory teams and was heavily involved in club racing, they had at least a 92? GTU 240sx, i dunno if they made an effort any other season, but i thought it would be nice if anybody had pictures of the car to post them up.

They had GTU cars for a few years... I think '89-'93, as long as there were fastbacks.

The 240SX was one successful beastie while they campaigned it, from what I gather. They got manufacturer's championships with the 240SX in '91 through '94. Nissan was kicking ass in everything IMSA back then, they had the 300ZX winning in GTS and the prototypes winning in GTP.

Here's some more of the GTU cars:

1989 240SX:


1990 240SX:


1991 240SX:


Dunno, but this has got to be a '91+ car:

While looking up some stuff on those cars, I found this neat little page on nissan's racing history.
