The annual Classic Motorsports Mitty, which calls itself the ‘Ultimate Motorsports Circus, celebrated Datsun and Nissan’s rich racing heritage this year.

Datsun and Nissan served as the theme for The Mitty 2018, which was held at the legendary Road Atlant circuit this past weekend. This year’s edition of the racing event didn’t disappoint, with a ton of Nissan and Datsun racecars turning up to participate in the festivities and put on a good show for the crowd.

Some particularly special Nissan and Datsun racecars participated in the weekend’s races, including cars from Brock Racing Enterprises and Bob Sharp Racing. Actor and comedian Adam Carolla was also present with his ex-Bob Sharp racing Datsun 610. Not all the participating vehicles were Datsuns and Nissans, though, with plenty of Porsches also turning up, along with BMWs, Mustangs, vintage stock cars and vintage open wheel cars.

On the Saturday, an all-Nissan/Datsun feature race was held, which was one by Alex McDowell in his 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R. Godzilla’s ancestor still has what it takes to win, evidently.

Check out the mega gallery of Nissans and Datsuns from The Mitty above, and if you’re craving more vintage Datsun racecar goodness, you can watch the onboard video below.
