GT6 Quick Match Events to Complement Bathurst 12 Hours in February

Gran Turismo 6Motorsports 22 January 26, 2015 by

Nissan has confirmed that 2012 GT Academy European champion Wolfgang Reip will be driving the factory team’s #35 GT-R NISMO GT3 in the upcoming Bathurst 12 Hours, to be held February 6th-8th. He’ll be joined by fellow NISMO athletes Alex Buncombe and Katsumasa Chiyo.

Of course, Nissan competed in the Bathurst 12 Hours last year; the GT-R NISMO GT3 car was running strong in 3rd place until an incident forced the team to retire before Wolfgang had a stint in the car.


“Mount Panorama is one of the most magnificent tracks I have seen! It’s very difficult mentally; I would say it is as hard as the Nordschleife. I have raced on both and I would say that although Bathurst is shorter it is just as challenging,” Wolfgang said.

To help celebrate the event, Polyphony Digital has announced a special round of GT6 Quick Match races will be hosted “in conjunction with the start of the race”. We’ll keep an eye out for more details; best of luck to the Wolfgang and the Nissan team!
