Tamiya - Daishin Advan Silvia 2003

"The Super GT series, formerly known as the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship or JGTC, is a grand touring car race series promoted by the GT-Association (GT-A). The Super GT is authorized directly by FIA.

On December 10, 2004, while the series had been mainly focused on Japanese domestic teams, sponsors and fans, with an ever-rising international fan following and TV coverage shown all over the world it was announced that JGTC would now be called Super GT with the goals of "challenge to the world", "challenge from the world", and "challenge to entertainment".

The cars are divided into two groups: GT500 and GT300 (cars with no more than 500 and 300 horsepower (374 and 224 kW), respectively). These power outputs are capped via the use of intake restrictors although some heavier cars are given allowances to run larger restrictors to maintain parity." quoted from wikipedia.

Did you know that the cars are divided into two categories, GT500 and GT300, and the both GT500 and GT300 groups are run at the same time? But the points are awarded separately for each group. The reason behind it is to maximize excitement for the fans.

GT500 is dominated by mostly top japanese car makers such as Toyota, Nissan and Honda. European car makers such as Ferrari and Aston Martin are also trying to test theirs cars against their japanese counterparts.

Tamiya, in conjuction with the Japan GT Championship, released JGTC diecast for the 2003 championship.

Presenting - Team Daishin Advan Silvia 2003!







It is one of the most detailed 1:64 scaled car that I had ever laid my eyes on! don't you think so?
