Five Nissan GT-R's to Compete in Dunlop Targa Rally

Five Nissan GT-R's are scheduled to compete in the Dunlop Targa Rally starting October 25th in Auckland, New Zealand. The event winds its way from Auckland to Wellington over six days and approximately 750 kilometers of closed stages.

The R35 is no stranger to winning Targa NZ, specifically in the hands of the Queensland based Scot, Tony Quinn. The Quinns are back with their GT-R and they are ready to go head to head with the R35 of expat New Zealand racing legend Steve Millen which has already been on show at this years Speedshow.

What has evolved more recently is that Quinn and Millen will have additional R35 competition in the form of two new, New Zealand based entries. Regular Targa competitor and NZV8 race driver Clark Proctor has one as well as Targa experienced driver Harry Dodson.
The R35 GT-R has been proving itself in targa rallies in Australia, as recently as August winning the Quit Targa rally in two classes.

This year Steve Millen will be competing in the STILLEN Nissan GT-R, in the past years he has run the event in a Ford GT. Check out the video below for some insight into the event.
