Motul Team RJN begin their preparation for the 2017 Total 24 Hours of Spa today as they hit Spa-Francorchamps for the Official Test Day with their pair of Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3‘s.
In the last race in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance at Circuit Paul Ricard, the team secured a fifth place finish and now the team is looking to build on this result for the longest race on the calendar.
“Any day you get to drive around Spa-Francorchamps is not a bad day at the office – especially on board the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3,” NISMO athlete, Alex Buncombe said.
“We had a really strong race at Paul Ricard and everyone at Motul Team RJN is really looking forward to the test.
“It is an important part of our preparation for the 24 Hour later this month. While the test doesn’t give you an insight as to what the place is like at 3:00 am in the morning when it’s raining, there are still lots of lessons to be learned.
“We’ve made some great strides with the car this year and I’m looking forward to working on our package in Belgium.”
Joining Buncombe is his regular teammates Lucas Ordóñez and Katsumasa Chiyo in the #23 Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 with Matt Parry, Struan Moore and Matt Simmons in the #24 entry.
