Mardenborough swaps European racing for Japan

1 Mins read

Jann Mardenborough will swap the GP3 Series for a dual campaign in Japan after Nissan announced his programme for 2016.

After two seasons in the GP3 Series with Arden International and Carlin, and fleeting outings with GT and Sportscar teams, Mardenborough will now race in the Super GT GT300 championship for NDDP Racing alongside Kazuki Hoshino as well as the Japanese Formula 3 Championship with B-Max Racing Team with NDDP.

Mardenborough will partner fellow Nissan NISMO star Katsumasa Chiyo in Formula 3, who will also partner Satoshi Motoyama in the Super GT GT500 championship after leaving the Blancpain GT Championship.

Former Nissan GT Academy Mardenborough graduate took a solitary victory in GP3 back in his rookie campaign, taking the chequered flag first in the sprint race at Hockenheim, but could not add to his tally in 2015 with Carlin, although he did make a one-off appearance in the GP2 Series with the team at Monza.

The British driver was also part of the ill-fated Nissan GT-R LMP1 effort in 2015 alongside Olivier Pla and Max Chilton that ended after just one troubled filled effort at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

2015 was Mardenborough’s third attack on Le Mans, having raced in 2013 with Greaves Motorsport and 2014 with Oak Racing, both in the LMP2 category.
