When it came time for this year’s annual NISMO Fiesta, eight motorsport enthusiasts from Nissan’s team were more than ready to hang up the suit and tie and hit the road. Their journey ultimately led them to San Marcos, Texas for one of the biggest Nissan owners’ festivals in the country.
Starting in Tennessee, the group drove six vehicles 920 miles in two days. They were welcomed by a Nissan dealership in Louisiana at the end of the first day before arriving in Texas for the Fiesta.
“We are car enthusiasts ourselves – so much so that we wanted to drive 1,000 miles in the cars that we promote,” said Max Moosman of Nissan’s Social Media team.
The two-day festivities, which took place on April 26 and 27, included a day at the track where Nissan owners got a chance to push their vehicles to the limit.
One attendee from Houston, Chris Coronado, said, “For me it is all about taking it to the track. I went out and had a blast. That car will do more things than I can make it do. It is just all about going out and having fun with your car.”
On Sunday, guests attended the car show where the new 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO made a guest appearance.
“I love coming here to see everybody else’s car and what they do to their cars and how different each looks even though we could all have the same model,” said Jennifer Taylor who participated in the event.
