In the mid-to-late 1980s, Jaguar and Porsche ruled the sports prototype racing roost, especially in the IMSA Camel GT Series. But beginning with a win at Miami in ’87, progressing to Geoff Brabham’s IMSA Camel GT drivers title in ’88 and culminating in an ‘89 season that saw Brabham narrowly edge teammate Chip Robinson for a second drivers title while capturing the manufacturers championship, the Nissan GTP ZX-T emerged as the dominant force in North American sports car racing.
Learn more about the history of the Nissan GTP ZX Turbo and find out what makes this car so special in our newly released video featuring four time IMSA Camel GT champion Geoff Brabham.
iRacing has faithfully recreated the Nissan GTP ZX-T’s powerful 795 bhp/593 kW V6 turbo along with its superbly handling chassis in making one of history’s most formidable sports prototypes available to iRacers the world over. One of the most brutally fast racing cars ever built, the Nissan GTP ZX-T was that rarest of beasts: a Porsche and Jaguar slayer. With the release of a meticulously-crafted digital version of the car, the Nissan GTP ZX-T comes alive again on iRacing.com.
