GODZILLA GT-R Group A R32 Nissan Skyline GTR - Bathurst 1000 1992
GODZILLA. The 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000 Winner and 1992 Australian Touring Car Championship Winner, The R32 Skyline GT-R.
The WINFIELD Number #1 GT-R piloted by Mark Skaife and Jim Richards was the winner at Mount Panorama for a 2nd year in a row.
WINFIELD GT-R won the 1992 Australian Touring Car Championship.
Driver Championships were also won by Skaife 1st and Richards in 2nd, Longhurst was 3rd with the BMW M3 Evolution in the final Drivers Championship Standings in 1992.
Australian Motorsport was changed forever after this event and proceeded with an amalgamation of today's V8 SUPERCARS. This also meant the removal and abolishment of turbo charged engines in the top tier of Australian Motorsport and only 2 car Manufacturers that compete for the title.
In this video the car is the GIO Racing GT-R with Mark Gibbs driving on the day along with Rohan Onslow, they finished 6th at Mount Panorama.
The eventual championship drivers were Mark Skaife and Jim Richards in the Winfield GT-R.
For those wondering why The Chase or "Caltex Chase" is not in the video:
Channel 7 decided to edit out The Chase section.
In 1987 Mike Burgmann died after his VK Commodore SS Group A became airborne at 260km/h along the second hump on Conrod Straight.
Bathurst hosted the WTCC in 1987 and the FIA regulations did not allow international tracks to have a straight longer than 1.5 km in that class, the second hump was removed and "The Chase" added.
In 1991 the Winfield GT-R (Skaife) reached 293km/h along Conrod Straight, similar speeds to the V8 Supercars of today.
The 1992 Tooheys Bathurst 1000 was stopped due to torrential rain and multiple crashes. The results were compiled using the 143rd completed lap, 18 laps short of full race distance.
The Fastest Lap of the race was -- #1 Mark Skaife -- 2:16.47

Nissan Skyline - HUGE FLAMES + Police let him off!
Kampala Kustomz modified Nissan Skyline R33
This was quite a spectacle to behold! Whilst standing on Sloane Street,
this R33 Nissan Skyline, with drove down and stopped by a few of us and
started shooting flames. I would never have expected the flames to get as
large as they did! Obviously, it's a very dangerous and silly thing to do
on public roads.
I don't want to get in to why the police let him go - something about them
not being able to do anything or charge him for anything - as I'm not
clued-up enough to make claims.
