A snap from the recent Japanese SuperGT race in Sepang shows the Hasemi Motorsport car harking back to R30 Super Silhouette livery.

I for one, approve!

    That’s really cool of them I think, it’s such a sweet shade of red.

    You see that photo I tagged you in man? GOOD

    Great to see the Hesemi honoring the Tomica Skyline R30 livery!

    Actually the middle picture showing the R30 Super Silhouette is not the later form. It is the Group C Nissan Skyline RS Turbo C which was used in endurance races outside Japan. It was ordered by an South African Nissan dealer to compete in the Kyalami 9 hour endurance in 1982, so the two are made during the same period.
    Technically they are quite alike, but due to the difference in rules between Group C and Group 5 the Turbo C had to be lower and wider than the Group 5 car.

    Oh, choice. Cheers for that info man. Unfortunately the only info I have on it is in Japanese and I’m not even vaguely fluent. Glad to have that clarified. I’ll adjust the post shortly to correct my mistake.
