Nissan drivers hoping it’s all white on night

NISSAN pair Michael Caruso and Dean Fiore (pictured) hope to turn back the clock at Bathurst this weekend, with their Altima dressed in the same white colours the manufacturer ran when taking pole with a Bluebird 30 years ago.

"We've had a pretty successful run in white cars - (Australian) Grand Prix was really good for us and it's so great we can celebrate Nissan's very first pole position," Fiore said. "I'm very proud that I actually get to drive around in the colours because I think this will be one model car I'll have to get built up and put on the shelf."

Caruso is yet to get on the podium in the 2014 V8 Supercars Championship, and sits in12th place on the driver's standings.

He drove with Fiore for the first time in last month's Sandown 500, the pair finishing 18th behind winners Jamie Whincup and Paul Dumbrell after having an issue in the pits.
