Japanese racing Z

    Recommended Posts

    Just been reading through a couple of books I got on the Nissan Z cars. Not much coverage of the early days of racing in 1970 on the Japanese circuits. From what I can ascertain Nissan had two works teams running the cars, the Z432-R and then the 240ZR. Does anybody have any more details on the Omori and Oppama factory race teams and what cars they ran. Were the race cars taken from the factory built Z432-R production or un-numbered chassis just built for racing.

    I believe number 68 was the first Z432-R and run as a factory effort, anyone know the chassis number. Sadly it was written off in its first race at Suzuka in Jan. 1970 with Moto Kitano driving.
