Just like in a 350Z catalogue I used to own; Nissan mentions that they beat Ferrari, Porsche, Toyota, and Honda in the Super GT series... but they leave out the nice parts about Ferrari and Porsche racing a lower specification class, and all Japanese cars (whether GT500 or 300) are essentially prototypes
Winning LeMans is nothing to sneeze at.
