Default Nissan NISMO GT-R GT3 Race Car Previewed Ahead of First Test

Nissan has released a lone image of its incredible GT-R GT3-spec race car ahead of its first competition test. Built by a partnership between Nissan’s NISMO motorsports division and JR Motorsports (JRM), the NISMO GT-R GT3 will hit the track this weekend for the fourth round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Magny-Cours.
Driving duties during the three-hour race will be shared by Richard Westbrook and David Brabham.

“Testing has been underway since earlier this year and the car has run very well. We now want to place it into a competitive environment as part of its continued development. We have no intention of racing to win at this stage, as we are focused on putting race-miles on the car and collecting as much data as possible,” said JRM Managing Director Andy Barnes.
The car will compete in several more events this year before its official race debut in October.

Built to GT3-spec, the NISMO GT-R is much closer to a production model than the current vehicles competing in the GT1 series in Europe. Perhaps the biggest difference is that the GT3-spec car shares its V6 VR38DETT with the production GT-R, while the GT1 class racers use naturally aspirated V8s.

awesome! anyone know if this series allows AWD too? i know that in the FIA International GT series, they have to run RWD and NA V8's. even if not, it's nice to see the TTV6 getting a workout.

I hope this will dominate GT3. Like how the R32 dominated the circuit.
