Promising Start To GT Season For Nissan GT-R Nismo

1 Mins read

A podium result in the opening round of the FIA GT Series saw the 2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 live up to its potential following a winter of extensive development.

Lucas Ordonez and Alex Buncombe, driving for Nissan GT Academy Team RJN, took third in the Pro-Am class in Nogaro, France, running faultlessly in a competitive field.

The British GT Championship saw Jody Fannin‘s GT-R Nismo GT3, entered by JRM Racing, finish just outside the top 10 in the second of two races, despite having to take a planned 20 second penalty for having no co-driver.

Both teams could have seen stronger results, but impact damage through no fault of either Nissan drivers took its toll on the cars.

“We are very pleased with the racing performance and competitiveness of the new Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 and its potential for future victories through the season,” said JRM Group executive director James Rumsey.

“We promised a strong, reliable car that wouldn’t let teams down, amongst all the other variables that can make or break a race weekend, and that is what we have delivered. At JRM Racing, we have been working with the new car and new drivers in an established field of competitors. We now look forward to seeing all our customer teams and drivers bedding in for the season and challenging for wins.”
