A big weekend of action ahead, but the crown jewel is the final race of the year in V8 Supercars Series. Look for Touring Car action, Mecum Auctions, the regular favorites and if you didn't notice a special on the most deadly years of International Rally racing, TONIGHT. I wouldn't make such a big deal about it, but I don't see any replays scheduled within the next several days. Enjoy your weekends.

Quick Vid: Nismo 380RS vs 997 GT3 (Best Motoring)

Nissan's performance arm, Nismo, goes into the creation of their ST-1 class inspired street version of the (then) 350z. Engineers brought displacement up to 3.8 litres and output to 350hp (from 287hp). The 380RS is then pitted up against a variety of Japanese sports car heavyweights and the benchmark in both the ST-1 series, and sports car market, the Porsche (997) 911 GT3.
