The maker of the Nissan R35 GT-R won the King of the Hill title for both road-going saloon cars and supercars, and modified saloon cars for the second year in a row. In both classes, it was a Nissan GT-R that set the fastest time, giving Nissan the top step on each podium.

"We are elated about the performance of our GT-R and our top-class racing drivers. They kept their composure despite very tough competition and showed the crowds and their fellow racers why the Nissan GT-R is such an iconic supercar," says Xavier Gobile, Managing Director for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Nissan Group of Africa.

"I would like to thank the Nissan team for their commitment and BB Motorsport for their preparation of the BB Motorsport NISMO GT-Rs."

Nissan competed in both class A and class B with different versions of the R35 Nissan GT-R and with the NISMO LEAF Racing Car.
