On April 4th Nissan confirmed the programe for the GT-R Development Team to Compete in the 24 Hours Nurburgring
I’m very proud that Nissan and Mizuno san believe in me for this important project, in which the objectives are to participate in a race held at Nurburgring, where the GT-R has been developed since its launch, with a production-version model, to share the excitement with GT-R fans and to continue to provide “passion & emotion” to customers through further development of GT-R production cars through their ultimate performance.
The team structure:
# 23 Team: Team NISSAN GT-R (GT -R Development Team)
# 123 Team: Team GT Academy GT-R (Polyphony Digital Team)
I’ll be driving # 123 GT Academy team with a very important team-mate in my career, Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of Gran Turismo, the simulator which has given me the opportunity to become a professional driver also with 2 other team-mates.
Before 24 hours, I have to compete in 2 of the VLN series races in the Nordschleife. The first will take place next weekend!
I’m really excited for this programe and I can’t wait to get in the GT-R and do my best for the GT-R development team at the 24h.
I will keep you informed
