The Nissan NISMO Festival is taking place at the Fuji Speedway in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, on Sunday, Dec. 2. This is the 21st annual year of the festival for fans, as it will give Nissan fans a chance to see the new Nissan Formula E car and new EV models as well.  

In fact, there will be more than 50 cars featured at the festival, all of which have competed in races all around the world from rally cars from the 1950s – 1980s, prototype models from the 1990s and currently GT and Formula cars from today. Past and present Nissan drivers will also be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans attending.

“We don’t have a Formula E race yet in Japan, so we’re thrilled to show its exciting driving to Japanese fans at the NISMO Festival. This is a great opportunity for motorsports fans to observe firsthand how Nissan and NISMO’s engineers and drivers learn through racing how to build more passionate cars, featuring Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies that offer our customers excitement and convenience.” 

-Takao Katagiri, CEO of NISMO and head of the NISMO road car business at Nissan
