After a brief history lesson to follow on our Nissan Pulsar GTIR cars' rally motorsports efforts, please find below the factory manual "GTIR NME RNN14 Group-N Manual.pdf" complete, but in JPG image format to display in this forum.

The rally history gives the background and derives from wikipedia. The entire article can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Pulsar_GTI-R
Hopefully it gives a bit of perspective on the massive effort involved in rally prep.

For a host of GTIR info in pdf format for this and other gtir manuals, docs, parts lists and videos check out: http://www.mediafire.com/gtiroz
Thanks!

N I S S A N__P U L S A R__W R C__H I S T O R Y

...After producing the required 5,000 examples (500 of them being homologation (RB) models), Nissan entered the GTI-R under Group A rules in the FIA WRC as a factory team (NME) in 1991 & 1992.

NME only competed in selected rallies during both years (ones they thought had the highest potential for good results), rally101.jpg
but the expected initial success did not materialise, and they never won a WRC Group A rally in the GTI-R.
rally103.jpgThe campaign was abandoned in 1992, NME was shut down, and funding was redirected to Le Mans and the development of the R390). Much has been written about the reason for the NME failure.
rally106.jpg The most notable being the Dunlop tyres, the inefficiency of the top-mounted intercooler when engine power was increased to Group A standards (especially in hot weather), and the political and cultural issues between Nissan Japan and the newly created NME (Nissan Motorsport Europe).

Group N

NME did not enter Group N (Production) cars in the WRC, but other factory-backed Nissan teams did. Most notable was the Nissan Belgium Rally Team with lead driver Grégoire De Mévius, and a Japanese entry (Team unknown) driven by Hiroshi Nishiyama.

De Mévius won 2 WRC Group N rallies: Acropolis (Greece) in 1991 & 1992, and won the Group N Championship in 1992 (FIA Cup for Drivers of Production Cars) with 37 points.

Nishiyama won 1 rally: the Rallye Côte d'Ivoire Bandama (a non-manufacturer round) in 1992, and finished 2nd in the Group N Championship in 1992 with 30 points.

These results clearly show that the GTI-R has the specifications and ability to be a successful rallying car at Production Class level.""
