Nissan ran two Nissan GT-R's in the 24 Hours of Nurburgring this past weekend. They ran the platform with "stock" engine, transmission, and driveline to help prove the durability of the platform.
The Nissan's finished 1-2 in class, but they were the only two cars in the class. The #123 car, the Gran Turismo car did better than the car with the "pro" drivers. The #23 car had to replace a transmission during the event, taking it off the track for 3 hours. They also supposedly had to replace an axle, taking it off track for about 30 minutes.
