GT-Rs are the ultimate all rounder, able to attack the track, dragstrip, mountain pass or do the daily school run. We’ve built them and used them for everything, so, we needed some corners thrown into the 2016 ST Hitec GT-R Festival. Thanks to Nulon Oils and Road and Track Driver’s Club (RTDC) we have the Tarmac Rally Challenge. You can go on the attack and try and be the quickest, or just have some fun with your mate in the car. We’re sure there will be plenty of tyre frying launches. There is also a trophy and some prizes from Nulon and Motive DVD for the quickest time and most entertaining laps.
