Nissan Announces 2008 sports program for the GT-R

2008 marks the return of GT-R to racing, following the transition from the R34 model to the Z five years ago. Continuing from last year, Mr. Kunihiko Kakimoto will be the General Manager for all Nissan related teams, and the Nismo Team Manager will be Mr. Yoshitaka Iijima.

Nismo will give technical support and car development support to teams entering the Nissan GT-R in SUPER GT. As a part of the Nissan team group, Nismo, Hasemi Motorsport, Team IMPUL, and Kondo Racing will enter the GT500 class with a total of five Nissan GT-Rs.

The 2008 Nissan GT-R has been developed with the following areas of focus:

  1. Reducing parts weight, lowering the center of gravity and optimizing weight distribution to improve handling and vehicle dynamics
  2. Using the aerodynamics of the new NISSAN GT-R to decrease drag and increase down-force
  3. Increased power and improved efficiency from the VK45 engine

So we will see 5 GT-R’s in the GT500 class.
